The lives of the Stubies are in your hands. They will walk mindlessly around the screen, bumping into each other and anything else in their way. But that’s not even the worst part! If left alone, they’ll simply walk right off of the platforms.

You’re able to tap and swipe to complete your goal.

Stubies is available for free today only (12/02). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 72 ratings.

Monument Valley is simply stunning. There’s no other way to put it. The minimalist 3-D design creates a world that you won’t want to leave. The object of the game is to guide Ida, a silent princess, through mysterious monuments by completely changing their shape. As you twist and drag paths, new ones will appear. It’s a delightful surprise every single time. Don’t forget to put on headphones as well, as the audio reacts to your every move.

Monument Valley is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 19861 ratings.

Your child must choose from four different characters before hitting the streets to dish up tasty treats. When the window opens, it’s time to serve. Your child will be tasked with completing orders for picky customers and unlocking new menu items with the money earned. Everything from donuts and waffles to chicken wings and hot dogs will need to be served.

Little Food Truck is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.
