Do you feel like you could use a bit of good nailing challenge? In this uncommon, yet totally engaging to the senses game, you will take control of a heavy hammer that is bound to hit all the nails it passes by. For every nail you strike into the wood, you get one point. Keep your attention on the timber at all costs!

Simply tap firmly on the screen to hammer down on the nail. Be careful with your timing – striking wood instead of the nail will automatically send you back to square one. The game can also get tricky with odd spikes and bombs placed strategically to distract you. Make sure to use the coins you earn to vamp up the wood or your hammer!

▲ Strike while the iron is hot! Or in this case, as it quickly passes by!

▲ Find your favorite among the 7 modes and dominate in one or more!

Humankind is at stake: nefarious aliens have invaded, and all who is left to save the world is… a whale? Get ready to use that tail fin to serve justice and protect the human race, as you bounce and flip across cityscapes in an otherworldly battle of the fittest!

Controls are simple: after your whale friend leaps from the ocean, tap anywhere on the screen to launch him into the air and tap twice for a double-jump. Bounce from rooftop to rooftop, and tap the downward arrow at the bottom of the screen to smash enemies and reduce buildings to rubble!

▲ Gain extra points for collecting diamonds consecutively, but make sure not to hit the ground – it equals game over!

▲ Bounce into the various alien enemies to rack up points. Think your finesse might make a good photo? Tap the upper-left camera icon to take a screenshot.

▲ Each purchasable whale has its own special ability, such as freezing enemies in their tracks or causing giant explosions!

Attack incoming aliens by bouncing and tail flipping them into submission, and collect blue diamonds scattered throughout each stage to up your points and use to purchase items in the store. Bouncing into the triangle power-up also increases your size and allows you to squash buildings without having to tap the dive icon!

Tapping onto ‘Mode’ from the home screen allows you to choose between alien attacking ‘Arcade’ and gate jumping ‘Slalom’ modes, both of which help you to collect points and diamonds that can be spent by tapping into ‘Shop.’ Purchase new whales with unique abilities, or power-ups such as shields and speed boosters, to help you save humanity from those aliens once and for all!

If you are looking for a quick pick-up game that requires a keen eye and speedy fingers, this simple tapping arcade-style app will put your timing to the test. On a 2D platform comprised of four colored columns, a small shape will slide from one side of the screen to the other, gradually increasing in speed. Time your tap for when the shape is over the same color column; successfully doing so will lift the platform towards coins, boosters, and high scores!

The premise may sound simple, but there is a catch: as the shape hits either the left or the right side, all of the columns will shift color, meaning you can’t rely on pattern memory. Correct timing will change the object color as well. Incorrect timing will lift the wrong column, causing the shape to crash into its side. This game is entirely about testing a quick mind, a sharp eye, and lightning-fast taps!

▲ Your accurate taps will increase your score as well as raise the platform. Be careful: it gets faster!<br>

▲ From earning coins or logging in regularly, you can unlock more shapes that have better benefits.<br>

▲ Challenge yourself and be rewarded with achievements as well as a ranking on leaderboards.<br>

As you progress through the game and raise the platform higher and higher, the shape will move back and forth faster and faster. Keep an eye open for booster items that slow down the object speed. Look out for coins as well to unlock new shapes and backgrounds!

Test both your reaction time and your coordination in a fun brain-training exercise that you can take with you wherever you go!
