Caveboy once proved himself as master of the maze. Little did he know that the very venue he proved his worth in was a trap, something he and his friends blindly fell into! Now Caveboy does not know where his friends are, only that he knows he has to find and save them!

Caveboy needs all your help in navigating different mazes. He can only go the end of maze by sliding along three or more tiles that match. Press and hold down on Caveboy and start swiping in the direction you feel is the fastest way to get him out. Some mazes will have timers to test how quick you can solve your way out, so always maintain your focus and be wary!

▲ Some mazes will collapse after a given period, so do your best to get Caveboy out of them fast!

▲ Win stashes of gold after you successfully level up Caveboy!

Connect one gray dot to another and create a flow! The goal is simple: cover more of the area than the black dot can. You may think this game of black and blue dots is as easy as drawing a circle but the higher the level you get, the more you will need to analyze the patterns you will have to make.

Your love for geometrical figures will definitely come in handy. Try this game to entertain the mathematician in you and at the same time challenge your analytical and logical skills. Enjoy 72 challenging levels and exercise your brain!

▲ Cover as much of the shape with your blue flow!

▲ Analyze which gray spots to travel to in order to win over the black dots.

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!
