Pusher 3D is a game as simple as it's name. You have your color and side of the screen, and on the other side you can see your enemy. You will need to tap on your troops to send them up against the other team, looking to push them off of the board you are both balanced on. Some of your troops are bigger or faster than others, so you will need to think before you send them out. It's a simple concept, but a well made game.
Bridge Race has made it back into the charts - this game is pretty simple. You have a specific color, showcased by your character color, and you need to collect bits of that color to build a bridge. As you collect your color, other people can knock into you, causing you to drop what you have collected, so you need to balance carrying these bits of bridge and placing them on your bridge. And to make matters worse, other players can build on your bridge taking it over!
Score! Hero 2 has been officially licensed, recently, allowing for more depth in the game itself.

Score! Hero 2 has realistic graphics as well, bringing the game to new heights.

It's simple but addictive, and if you die, you can even pass down everything you have earned to an heir!

If you can make quick decisions, you can make it to the finish line first.
Similar to other racing games, but different because you are super heroes, Muscle Rush is a running forward game where you need to smash walls, take part in arm wrestling, and otherwise make it to the end of the level first.
