Astropop: Astropop is a point-and-click puzzler with space-age arcade action. Use your futuristic magnet ray to grab and match like-colored bricks from the descending walls, and fill up the Brick-o-Meter to advance to the next puzzling frontier. Unlock different characters and extra-powerful weapons to keep the space bricks at bay, and uncover the sci-fi storyline as you rocket through levels of increasing difficulty.

Feeding Frenzy: Scale new heights of aquatic action with one of the all-time biggest casual game hits, Feeding Frenzy. In the beginning, you're a little fish in a very large ocean, working to eat fish smaller than you and avoid the larger ones who view you as lunch. Gobble your way up the food chain while battling everything from minnows to orcas, and keep eating the power-ups to increase your speed, growth rate, add extra time, bulk up your "food bank" and more!
