Smash Hit by Médiocre AB
Want to go crazy with the marbles? This endless racing game-like gem is definitely the one that will make your head spin. The first thing you notice is the graphics. From seeing the smallest details of the glass objects around you to the first person view while playing, it’s a wonder to see. Users can even adjust the graphics quality in the settings. The object of the game is to travel through the different labyrinths and tunnels while smashing the glass pyramids with your limited supply of marbles. Just tap the area of the screen to aim and shoot. For each target you smash, you gain additional marbles which will come in handy as they are also used to destroy obstacles and other obstructions in your path. There are milestones to achieve and power-ups to collect along the way. The visual style is impressive and there are different checkpoints to record your progress. However, the free version will not allow you to access these checkpoints. Players will have to start over from the beginning each time they play. To be able to unlock this feature, an in-app purchase of $ 1.99 is required.

Keyboard shortcuts by Toysoft Development
With the release of operating system 10.3.1, keyboards gained the ability to assign an action or speed dial to specific keys. As a throwback to old devices, it’s a productive way to launch apps, compose emails, texts and BBMs, dial a contact or even switch between notification modes and lock your device. . Toysoft decided to take it a step further and code an app that works in conjunction with this functionality and those already loaded. In addition to the 25 available keys that you can assign, it gives you 32 more. These include a bookmark manager, a clipboard manager, a shortcut to state the current date, time and temperature, system information, make a fake call, a flashlight, and various shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts are only available for OS 10.3.1 and cost $ 2.99 to purchase.

Geodesic asteroids by Peter Musgrave
While going through the storefront I came across this arcade game to pass the time. It is a physics-based game in which the surface is played along a torus or donut. The path your ship takes is over a curved space, not a straight line, making it difficult to shoot objects around you. This is also why it allows you to play both on a 3D torus and on a 2D cartographic view of space. It might be a simple game, but it’s quite interesting in its mechanics and concept. There is a free version and a bounty of $ 0.99 which allows for bonus ships. You can download it only for all touch devices.

There is also a premium version which offers another option called periodic wipe so that users can choose which directories are supposed to be wiped after a certain time.
