Fast Camera doesn’t just snap a lot of shots, it also does it without any setup. You’re able to have Fast Camera begin capturing shots the moment you launch it. All you have to do is stop it.

We really like how Snow Brawlin’ Xtreme combines tilt and tap mechanics. Tilt your iDevice to move Risoo into position and dodge the incoming snowballs. Tap on the feisty rodents in the distance to return fire. Your snowball supply is unlimited, so don’t stop chucking them.
