Just like the original title, your job is to guide trains of different colors to their correct stations without allowing them to smash into each other. Trains enter the screen as one of three colors, and you must direct them to their matching stations by tapping on the tracks to switch them.

More ElectroTrains is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 68 ratings.

Spell Collapse ($1.99 → Free, 23.3 MB): Bring it all crashing down in this word game.

The game board is made up of a whole bunch of hexagonal letter tiles. Your job is to connect them by dragging your finger over the top in order to form valid words. Valid words cause the tiles to turn green, and you can tap on them to remove them from the board. You’re also able to swap tiles by dragging and dropping them into place. Each move you make will cause a new row of letters to come crashing down, so you want to try to create as large of words as possible to keep them from touching the top. You’ll also come across tiles that cannot be connected to each other and those that need to be used twice before they can be removed. Power-ups can also be earned throughout the game by collecting dots. The game includes four modes, four types of power-ups, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. Spell Collapse is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 46 ratings.

As you go speeding down Shred Lord mountain, you’ll need to avoid pitfalls like bushes and trees while successfully skiing around and through gates. If you ram into an object or miss a gate you’ll slow down substantially and allow the avalanche to catch up to you, so shred like there’s no tomorrow! You’re able to control your skier’s horizontal movements via on-screen buttons, and you can leap into the air by tapping and holding with two fingers and then releasing. Collect pine coins during your trip down the mountain to unlock shortcuts and purchase gear. The game includes four mountain sections, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. Dudeski is available for free today only (07/07). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 129 ratings.
