In Bugatron, you must eradicaterepparttar evil alien insects, which swoop and dive at your spaceship in a variety of formations. The polished graphics added to our enjoyment, andrepparttar 148396 sound effects are blasting cool.

Cosmo Bots

Cosmo Bots takes its cue fromrepparttar 148397 addictive classics Jezzball and Qix. However, that's whererepparttar 148398 similarity ends, because Cosmo Bots has different shapes for each level, 3D rendered graphics, digital sound, new enemies, and tons of power-ups. The free version features a full set of 50 levels to play, and does not require any special hardware.

At its core, Bricks of Egypt is an Arkanoid clone, but it goes beyond replicatingrepparttar 148399 frequently imitated art of busting bricks to place a refreshing emphasis on creative level design. Sure, there's a ball and paddle, but Arcade Labs layers these familiar basics with Egyptian-themed power-ups, bonuses and special challenges (such as hittingrepparttar 148400 water drops to extinguish fire bricks or striking keys to unlock new areas onrepparttar 148401 screen).


Meetrepparttar 148402 Dropheads, hilarious and loveable characters with treasure on their mind. Help these strange little guys navigaterepparttar 148403 seas by matching them in groups of four or more. Then, watch them bounce offrepparttar 148404 screen. As you go, collect pieces of a treasure map and assemble them to findrepparttar 148405 hidden loot. And with two game modes, Arcade for those who like a fast pace and Strategy for those who like a relaxing diversion, there's something for everyone.
