The letters are flooding the grid and to clear them out, you have to create as many correct English words as you can. Tap on any letter wherever they are on the grid to spell out a word. When accepted, the tiles will then be cleared out. However, that doesn't stop the other letters from filling up the empty spaces. Plus, you have to be quick because time is limited!

This word puzzle offers excitement as you try to stop the letters from filling up the grid. Aim to score five hundred points to get a bomb that will wipe out all of the current tiles. Will your vocabulary skills, and even spelling skills, withstand this time-pressured challenge?

▲ Make any word from the available letters to clear out the tiles before all empty tiles run out.

▲ Create as many words as you can for high scores and a top spot on the leaderboard.

Solitaire may be a game of cards but the concept behind solving it can apply to any stacking arrangement. Here is a puzzle game that takes this idea to create an even more challenging puzzle using trains!

Similar to Solitaire, the goal here is to make sure that all the identical train cars are lined up and joined together. They can be moved from the left or right side but only if they match. A powerful AI will also assist you in case of a move that makes solutions impossible.

The puzzle’s difficulty can prove a worthy match to anyone who loves honing their observational and problem-solving skills. There are more than 200 levels to beat and several of them even contain special objectives (such as solving within a time limit or within a set number of moves). If you think it is high time you moved on from stacking cards, then maybe lining up these trains can be your next feat of puzzle-solving prowess!

▲ How quickly can you unscramble these trains and link up all the identical ones together?

▲ Test your mettle across the board with puzzles that come with extra challenges.

Cailie needs a quick thinker to accompany her in Akihabara, Tokyo’s Electronic Town. The music’s mixed and the bass is pounding, but she could use your help with the puzzles!

Start off with the future sounds of Track 1 and match identical shapes. As they come down from the top of the screen, you can change them (or not) by perfectly timing your roaming bar’s tap. Each successful change you make nets you a multiplier, but you will need four or more of the same shapes or colors to blast them off of the screen!

▲ Hit the moving pulse bar on the beat to change from one shape to the one featured up top.

▲ Unlock new places and play new games - now you need to match four or more of the same color.

▲ Change Cailie's outfit, your name, or spin that dial to 11 and rock Akihabara!

In addition to clearing the levels, there are also 15 different achievements you can get, such as Super Beat Master (clearing a normal campaign on turbo speed) and Bad Bead (complete campaign with no more than 50 bad hits)!

More than 15 tracks, 2 modes of play, and some pretty difficult achievements to get means that you might be in the groove for a while…but with these sick beats, enjoy the sights and sounds of Akihabara!

An assemblage of ruthless, cold-wired robots have unfairly occupied a collection of planets rightfully belonging to the aliens. Having become refugees of the solar system, it is up to your little intergalactic friend to restore things to how they once were! The steely robots are great in number and will require thinking two steps ahead if you want any chance of beating them!

Planet by planet, engage in a series of grid-based levels where your goal is to defeat robots by smashing into, firing ammo at, and using Power Cards in order to turn them into scrap metal. To do this, charge your little character around the course, taking into account the arrows which will alter his course of direction! On-screen instructions will take you through the simple mechanics of the game. The challenge lies in tactically planning the best route to ensure maximum damage is dealt to the robots which are scattered around the map.

▲ Planning a route which takes advantage of as many green orbs as possible is essential for keeping robot numbers down!

▲ Collect Power Cards and unleash their unique functions onto your unsuspecting victims.

▲ Complete all the levels to save the planet! Each polygon with a robot marks a boss round.

Be frequented by hefty robot bosses who hope to turn you into alien-sauce. If you use your strategy by picking out the best route on the grid, you can show these bionic brutes an alternative reality. Tap to change the arrows on the grid, and smash into rocks to collect the surprises hiding within. You will need to rely on the elements around you for any chance of restoring peace to the planets. As the grid sizes and robot numbers increase, this can prove more than a challenge. Avoid having a meltdown yourself, and send these robots soaring back to a planet where they came from.

Connect the dots… seems easy, right? Don’t be fooled – you will be needing to call upon your brain power to help solve the increasingly challenging levels in this puzzle of melodious line making!

The aim is to create a connected line between two entrance points by tapping and dragging across the blue tiles to turn them green. There is also a catch - you need to use all of the tiles on the grid, and the same entrance point can’t be used twice!

▲ Tap the pause button on the top-right at any time to come back to your place in the puzzle later.

▲ Made a mistake? Tap and drag over your already made line to erase it!

▲ Tap onto the red icon from the home screen to choose between level packs with “episodes” of levels.

As the puzzles grow more complex, you may need to make use of the tools at your disposal. Tap the magnifying glass icon to zoom in and out, the brush to clear the grid, or the light-bulb for a hint when you are stuck. In the case of hints, you only have a certain amount available – use them wisely!

Think you have got the hang of it? Compare your scores with friends and players from around the world through the global and Facebook leaderboards for a boost of motivation - or smug satisfaction. See if you can be one of the coveted few to complete all 1,000+ levels!

In this fantastic puzzle, you will be clearing dotted square tiles throughout levels generated with gorgeous backgrounds and serene music!

The only way to remove the tiles in front of you is to swipe them away in groups of three or four. That sounds easy, but the number of dots on the block face is how many times swiping needs to occur. Bringing complicated into the realm of meditation, tile placements are random, and if you fail a level, the arrangement will change!

There are three different game modes: the increasingly difficult "Endless," fast-paced "Time Attack," and "Playground" with your preferred difficulty and dot numbers! Take your time playing your favorite mode and perform great letter combos for more points. Save enough coins to unlock soothing themes such as a tranquil mountain, a romantic night, and others!

▲ 2 red pips shows you have to swipe twice, so think before you act!

▲ Perform combos of different letters, and earn points based on individual multipliers!

▲ Relaxing sets of beautiful music paired with unique themes to play in.
