Simply Poker Squares
In Simply Poker Squares, the rules couldn’t be simpler; build as many poker hands on a five by five grid of squares from a deck of 25 cards. That’s it! Whether you’re new to Poker or a seasoned veteran you’ll find yourself hooked on getting the perfect game.

Rick O'Shea
Rick O’Shea is a human cannonball who performs death defying stunts for the crowd. Players must control Rick and steer him around using cannons to avoid dangers such as timed spikes and shark pools, all so that Rick can reach the exit of each level. Each cannon is static so the player can only control the rotation before firing our hero in the desired direction. Once fired Rick will ricochet off ceilings, walls and floors until he reaches another cannon or the exit.

Skydiver Drop Zone
This sequel to Skydiver Mach II will test your nerves in this simple yet addictive split-second reaction game. Tap and hold to free fall, release as close to the line as you dare and then guide your Skydiver into the drop zone. The Closer to the line you release, the most points players earn.
