Bugs On The Bayou - Easy controls, Great for Kids, Fun and Ads FREE ($0.99 -> Free, 16.5 MB): Play as a firefly on a mission in the bayou and try to collect enough stars in each level to move onto the next in this colorful casual game. Your little firefly follows your finger all around the screen, and it's up to you to draw circles around different types of bugs to capture them and collect their stars. But not all bugs are of the same color, so you'll have to tap on the screen to change your own and match theirs before trying to capture them. The game includes 20 levels, original music, and Game Center integration.

Oculus Visualizer ($0.99 -> Free, 5.9 MB): Visualize all of the music in your library with this music player. First choose a song, then choose from one of the 11 visuals, and just sit back and watch as your music comes to life. When your device is in landscape orientation you can view the visuals in all of their full screen glory. Tapping on a visual will change its color, and swiping will move on to the next one. You can also shuffle and loop your music, control it from the lock screen, and pause your music by laying your device in its face.

RuneMasterPuzzle ($1.99 -> Free, 16.6 MB): Forget those simple match-3 games, RuneMaster brings you all of the challenging match-4 goodness you can possibly handle. The object of the game is to swap rune stones to create matches of four or more like stones and fill the meter at the top of the screen. Stones can be swapped in eight different directions, but you're given a limited number of swaps per level, so you'll have to plan each one wisely.

When the ball is on your side of the court you can pass it around to keep your opponent on their toes, and then chuck it when the time is right. The game includes retro graphics, multiple modes, and online multiplayer via Game Center.
