Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls

LinesLines by Ziming Zhang (Free, 11.3 MB): Nearly anyone in the family can pass the time and challenge their mind by playing this uniquely strategic and unpredictable match-5 puzzler. Unlike similar titles, pieces may move more than a single space. To maneuver them, tap on one to select it, then tap an empty destination cell. With only a few pieces to start, the board is very unobstructed, allowing easy alignment. As time progresses, a random set of three randomly will be added and are shown beforehand in the bottom-left. Not only does the increasing crowd force unwanted moves, it can entirely block actions. Think of every move as if you’re dragging a piece to the desired location, thus requiring an open path, whether winding or direct. Obviously, this restriction is how play becomes so difficult. The game features colorful 2.5-D graphics, children's-style background music, Classic and extra reward providing Arcade modes, move assistance, tutorial as well as Game Center leaderboards.

Alphabets 2 Words by Saurabh Passolia (Free, 27.8 MB): This fast-paced and strategic word search puzzler provides a solid mind workout and, of course, some time passing entertainment. To complete each stage, you must highlight a single target word. Sounds way too easy, right? Indeed, the task is simple, however, execution has its difficulties. Rather than contiguously aligned in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal, word selection involves grabbing letters throughout the board in a maze navigating-type fashion. The less steps you take, the better. In addition, as time ticks away, so does the coin reward, which is used to purchase power-ups, if desired. Following the completion of each stage, you amy submit the individual level score as a public challenge. The game features 2.5-D graphics, techno soundtrack, 160 predefined stages spanning eight word categories, four power-ups, global challenges, as well as Game Center achievements and leaderboard. An unlimited level mode can be unlocked via a $1.99 in-app purchase.
