Nightmare Moon has escaped imprisonment and is spreading darkness across the beautiful lands of Ponyville. Playing as Twilight Sparkle and her friends, you must stop Nightmare Moon.

You do this by aiding Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Applejack, and others as they attempt to rebuild Ponyville. Oh, and by completing several mini-games.

Word Smack is a two-player word game that features plenty of helpful power-ups and loads of elements familiar to fans of logic puzzles.

Storm the Train
By Chillingo - download free for iPhone and iPad

Your mission in this action-packed side-scrolling shooter is to climb on board a speeding train and wipe out the hordes of zombies, robots, and ninjas that are roaming around in it.

There are three different gun-toting super-agents from which to choose, and a whole bunch of powerful vehicles to take control of. These include jetpacks and a helicopter.

You can spend the coins that you earn as you play on new clothes, items, and weapons.
