As a lonely driver journeying across the barren landscape, collecting beats from the streets has become your destiny. Such a destiny doesn’t come without its pitfalls, however – you will be needing to avoid oncoming enemies and obstacles along the way!

Your car drives forward automatically, so it is up to you to swipe left and right to collect the colored beats scattered across the road in time with the music. Obstructions in your path can be overcome with a quick swipe up to leap over them, but be wary of enemy vehicles coming in from behind – swipe down when they are directly behind you to unleash an attack. If they get too close, it is game over!

▲ Collecting blue-colored beat gems allows you to use your weaponry – be sure not to run out!

▲ Once an enemy is close, unleash an attack to blast them off the road.

Mini-golf and pinball and pong, oh my! Why choose, when you can have all three-in-one to make a hole-in-one! Ready that swiping finger and keep your eye on the ball - this deceptively simple game requires quick reflexes and even quicker thinking!

Swipe a wall of any length on the screen using your finger to bounce the ball off of it. As it bounces away, carefully choose the length and angle of your next series of swipes to guide the ball into the hole. Be careful! If it flies off the screen, the level ends and you will have to start all over again.

▲ You may need to get creative with your strategy. If you need a moment to think, tap the top-left pause icon.

▲ Moving into the bolt icon activates a time-limited slow down mode. Use it to your advantage!

▲ Enlarging the hole is handy, but it is bigger only for the amount of time indicated on the top-left countdown clock.

Thought that it was already challenging enough? As the levels continue, obstacles are thrown into the mix that will have you thinking doubly quick – can you avoid the rotating spikes throwing you off, or the bouncy platforms hurtling your ball in different directions?

Don’t worry, power-ups soon emerge to lend a helping hand. Maneuver the ball into the lightning bolt icon to slow it down for a period of time, the starburst icon to enlarge the hole, or other useful goodies to enhance the gameplay. Keep your wits about you as you swipe, soar, and bounce to that hole that seems so close yet so far away!

Those whacky “Wobblers” have gotten themselves into a bit of a pickle. They are raining down from the sky, and it is up to you to catch them with your trusty rocket platform. Unfortunately, they are a little prone to bouncing – aim to keep them balanced while avoiding the oncoming obstacles!

Tap the right and left sides of the screen to fly in each direction. The Wobblers you are carrying will shift with gravity as you move, so you will be needing to tap carefully and precisely in order to stop them from plummeting off the platform. Catch parachuting Wobblers as they drift down the screen, but be wary that if all Wobblers are dropped it is game over!

▲ Wobblers within the rocket pod temporarily move upwards by themselves, letting you catch others more easily.

▲ Your current score is shown at the top of the screen. Earn points quicker by collecting coins and stars along the way!

▲ Each stage gives you a mission to complete, from collecting a certain amount of coins or Wobblers to lasting a specific amount of time.

Collect coins as you glide upwards by directing your Wobblers into them, and collect stars for an extra point boost. A variety of power-ups - such as the rocket pod - can be picked up to help you out, but keep your eyes open for obstacles like falling comets and explosive bombs!

“Rainbow Rush” mode is activated every six hours, and gives you the chance to pick up oodles of coins and goodies as long as your Wobbler doesn’t fall before the timer reaches zero. Tapping into the trophy icon on the home screen also gives you the chance to connect with others through the achievements and leader boards – prove yourself to be the world’s most wobble-worthy master balancer!

Not only has Alice had to deal with the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and dastardly Queen of Hearts, now she has to deal with an incoming onslaught of fiendish monsters in order to make her escape from the Mirror World once and for all!

Start by leaping from the teacup with a well-timed tap, and control Alice’s movements by tilting your device left and right. When enemies appear tap on them to slice them in two using your trusty sword, but be wary of your health hearts shown at the top of the screen – once they are depleted, it is game over!

▲ The coins you have collected are shown at the top of the screen – defeat monsters to get more!

▲ Spend coins on upgrades for Alice, and get hints on how many mirrors to break through in order to unlock new forms.

▲ Unlock new familiar character styles as you play, and use coins to purchase and use them.

Each part of the level is divided into mirrors, which need to be broken through in order to continue. Every couple of mirrors smashed through can unlock a new form of Alice, as well as new power-ups such as the pocket watch that slows time and the “Drink Me” potion that shrinks her down.

New enemies emerge as you soar through the Mirror World, each with different abilities and attributes. Time carefully to smash through the floating ball while its spikes aren’t showing, avoid the shooting fireballs of the blue-winged demon, and more. Upgrade Alice’s health and strength from the game over screen to help you speed through each mirror with ease, and don’t be surprised if you start shouting “off with their heads” as you go!
