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!

Get ready for a “hoot” and have a “paw-somely” good time alongside a cast of adorable owls and kittens with a thirst for knowledge. These animals are after more than simply eating worms and coughing up fur balls – their goals are to build atomic power plants and explore space!

Tap and drag the icon from the rock at the bottom of the screen onto any empty tile of the grid. Match three of the same icons to combine them into a new one, and then continue to match the new icon with two others of the same type to continue the chain. Soon, you will find yourself combining and creating everything from university buildings to spaceships!

▲ Tap and drag an icon into the nest at the bottom-left to hold it there until you need to use it!

▲ Tap and hold on an icon of the grid to see a hint of how to combine at the top of the screen.

▲ Find information about icons, power-ups, and more by tapping the question mark icon from the main screen!

A little stuck? No problem - you have plenty of tools and power-ups in your arsenal. Try using a crystal to automatically link two icons into three, the magic hat to remove a piece from the grid, the UFO to relocate icons, and more!

If you have a bit of a competitive streak, link your Facebook account and go up against friends (or friendly “meow-nemies”) to see “hoo” can reach the most “purr-fect” score. When you are feeling a bit more generous, you can also exchange gifts by tapping the upper-left envelope icon. So what are you waiting for, human? Atoms and galaxy exploration wait for no man… ahem, creature!

Within an isometric dimension of darkness and fluorescence lives a brood of “light children” who have been separated from their mother. It is up to you to take control of their combined body of tiny particles, defeat the enemies of corrupted light, and reunite this luminous family!

Tap anywhere on the grid to move there, and collect weapons by moving through the colored squares. Waves of enemies emerge from the red markers – hold down on the screen and swipe in different directions to aim, then release to shoot. Complete each level by eliminating all the enemies and the bases they come from!

▲ The amount of light particles you have remaining is shown on the upper-right.

▲ Evade your attackers in “Endless Mode” using skill and strategy. Your current score can be found on the bottom-left!

▲ Each level of the main mode can be previewed from the map screen, and become highlighted upon unlocking.

Aside from the single shot, a variety of light weapons can be discovered including the multi-shot that can eliminate bigger groups of enemies quickly. One thing to keep in mind – each shot thrown takes away portions of your own particles. The level will end if all of your particles are depleted by enemies, obstacles or shooting, so make every move count!

If you think that you have got what it takes, try your hand at the “Endless Mode” accessible from the home screen. Here, instead of level-based gameplay, you are thrown into a battlefield with nonstop droves of incoming opponents. Keep your wits about you, and try to survive the onslaught in order to get the best score and beat others on the leaderboard!
