And as you soon discover, you're not exactly alone down here...
Let's be honest. If you had both a medieval-style cannon thing and an unlimited supply of the undead to serve as ammo, you'd probably spend most of your time trying to launch them into various obstacles. Fortunately Mibix has come out with Impale 2, a physics puzzler that gives you gory zombie-flinging without the intensive clean-up after words. A little macabre and immature, but a lot of fun, its 70 levels will make one wish for Halloween to come early this year.
Games centered around the sport of basketball seem to be making a comeback, and we're not talking about sports simulations, either.

Looking for a career change? Consider the fantastic work of the physics puzzle builder in this quirky, silly iOS game! Build castles that reach the sky by dragging and dropping an assortment of blocks, towers, toppers and more to collect coins, house people, and more. Simple in concept, easy to get into, and polished up with a hefty dose of humour, it's exactly the sort of hard to put down casual mobile game that can gobble up your free time before you know it.
Bub is dead, but like any good dog, he's not letting that keep him down. In this free iOS advergame for the upcoming ParaNorman movie, you control the ghostly pooch as he jumps, chomps, and swings his way through levels trying to retrieve the zombie bones he's lost so that their owners don't come looking for them when the sun goes down. Simple and straightforward but absolutely gorgeous, 2-Bit Bub is a ghoulishly good time.
Blast, burn, and oxidize your way through this clever new spin on a physics puzzle. Place bombs across 40 stages of elemental mayhem, where fire, water, air, and earth all have an impact on gameplay. Though it's still familiar and feels like it could have experimented with its concept even more, it's a solid little diversion for the phuzzle fans in the audience.
Prepare to go with the flow once more! The ethereal beauty of MoonMana's trippy puzzler is back in the Waterfalls 3: Level Pack. This expansion has everything we loved from the original: Psychadelic visuals, experimentation-based physics gameplay, and a trance-y soprano on background vocals. A very soothing experience, though since the mechanics aren't spelled out, those new to the series might wish to check out an earlier installment to get their bearings.
Those crafty rabbits. From Bugs to the waistcoat-wearing White Rabbit who's always late, you can pretty much bet each and every one of them is up to something nefarious. In Gamaga's new mobile puzzle game Follow the Rabbit, this is most certainly the case. As the action begins you watch as a cuboid bunny hops down the path, a sack of coins leaking gold with every bounce. Being the helpful villager that you are, you take it upon yourself to follow the rabbit, collecting coins and solving some fiendish puzzles along the way.
