| Sputnik Eyes

Boy, do you have a lot of games in store for you this week. A lot.

We've scoured the New Zealand App Store to bring you this fine list of every single game that you can play from midnight tonight. Aren't we nice?

Blocky Raider
By Full Fat Productions Ltd - Free

If Crossy Road met Indiana Jones, their baby would be Blocky Raider.

You'll explore temples, avoid traps, dodge boulders, and traverse lava all in glorious voxel form.

Blocky Raider Ball Jump
By Ketchapp - Free

Ball Jump is a minimal platformer in which the level is being designed as you roll.

You have to tap to jump between the blocks and get the timing absolutely right or you'll face certain death.

Ball Jump Ricochet Theory
By Appdore, LLC - £1.49 / $1.99

Ricochet Theory is a physics-based puzzler in which you have to place platforms in the ideal place so that a ball will hit every single one of them.

It's not going to be easy but there are well over 80 levels to test your skills in.

Ricochet Theory Sputnik Eyes
By Shelly Alon - £1.49 / $1.99

Sputnik Eyes is another puzzler but this one's a little bit more weird.

You have to help each of the coloured eyes scan a planet to discover its correct position. This is marked by little coloured shapes.

There are 60 levels to explore and loads more randomly generated ones.

Mix+Smash: Marvel Super Hero Mashers
By Disney Publishing Worldwide Applications - Free

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a super hero existed that could use every single power of each individual Marvel character?

Wonder no more for that's exactly what Mix+Smash: Marvel Super Hero Mashers offers.

Mix+Smash: Marvel Super Hero Mashers Circlestances
By Marcus Schwarten - Free

And back to minimal. Here we have a reaction-based game where you have to tap the screen at the point that two circles overlap. You'll get a score based on the size of the overlap.

There are four different game modes which change up the formula so it sounds like there's a surprising amount of depth here.

The Ascension

The Ascension is kind of like Down The Mountain in reverse but with a lot less going on.

You have to tap to rotate the platforms and allow a bouncing ball to keep climbing. You also have to collect the pyramids along the way.

Speed increases as you climb and the platforms below you will disappear, so you'll have to be quicker and quicker the further you get in.

The Ascension Kube Rush
By Mass Creation Sp. z o. o. - Free

Slide down a tunnel, tap to avoid holes and obstacles, and collect spheres to unlock different cubes.

The further you get, the higher your score and that's all there is to it.

Kube Rush Avoid.
By Noodlecake Studios Inc - Free

Touch and drag to move your adorable character around the screen and avoid spinning blades that threaten to murder them in an incredibly gruesome fashion.

On the way, grab the coins to unlock even more cute characters to get sliced and diced.
