You know that feeling when you want to play an experimental French billiards game? Well, Magic Shot is here to satisfy that gnawing desire. In this game, the shape of the pool table changes, but the goal always remains the same: to knick both the red and yellow balls with the cue ball in a single shot. From Touch Arcade’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:
So, your enjoyment with Magic Shot is contingent on how much chaos you like in your games. Purity mode will test your patience with this game, though it is forgiving with the multiple shots that you get. But I do wish you good luck in trying to figure just how exactly you’re going to hit some of the shots the game gives you. Meditation and Insanity, while providing opposite structures, both rely on the chaos of the concept to progress further. So, unless you can somehow become the master of bouncing spherical objects off of each other, then just take Magic Shot for what it is: an exploration of a concept, not as a game meant to be fair. As I say when I let loose a pool shot that I have no clue will actually work or not: let chaos reign!

Caves ‘n Chasms is a game about digging. It’s about solving puzzles and digging with a drill. Also, there are monsters and some issues with the controls. From Pocket Gamer’s 8 out of 10 review:
But stick with it and everything will start to click. You’ll discover how cunning some of the layouts and puzzles are, find yourself determined to beat them, and then enjoy new items and power-ups as they’re revealed.

Racing drunken horses has never been as fun as it is in Finger Derpy, a bizarre game that’s probably unlike anything you’ve played before. It comes with a drunken race mode and a drunken endless running mode, and really what more could you ask for, based on the premise? From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:
The only problem withFinger Derpy is that it’s much easier to laugh at than it is to control. It’s understandable that controlling these intoxicated creatures is a difficult and messy process, but this commitment to swimmy and relatively unresponsive controls might prevent some players from giving it a shot. That being said, drunk horses are funny; and they’re even funnier when a group of four players are bumbling about and running into each other as they try to race around a track on the same screen in multiplayer.
