Agent Rabbit ($0.99 -> Free, 15.1 MB): Aliens are planning to take over the world and the forest pigeons are the only creatures capable of warning the humans, so it's up to you, as the noble hare, to defend the pigeons from the eagles, hawks, and other angry birds in this shooter. Tap and drag your finger to draw a line on the screen and change the angle of your shot, and then just release when you want to fire upon your enemies. You'll want to make sure to take out the aliens first, as they are the only ones capable of actually harming you. The game includes two modes, power-ups, and Game Center integration.

The game includes on-screen controls, six environments, 36 levels, 12 bosses, over 100 bonus items, and Game Center integration. **Triniti Interactive is notorious for promoting their own games with small banners displayed during menu screens, so if this is something you aren't fond of, avoid this and all of their other games.**

Fascination ($0.99 -> Free, 18.8 MB): A simple physics-based arcade game based on the classic North American boardwalk game. All you have to do is roll the ball down the table by swiping your finger and watch as it sinks into one of the 25 different holes.

The tickets you earn during the game can be redeemed for prizes that enhance the gameplay.
