You and your opponent are armed with hammers, and you must compete in whacking moles of different sizes as they pop out of the hole in the middle of the screen. The first player to hit the mole scores the points, but the bigger moles will require multiple hits, allowing you to rack up even more points.

Soccer Physics isn’t a sports simulation game. It’s far from it. What it is is the most insane and amusing soccer game you’ll ever play. You’re put in control of both of the soccer players on your team, but you only have one button. Tap that button to kick, jump, and generally flail about in order to block shots and score goals. The game includes random modes, outfits, and hairstyles.

Soccer Physics is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 955 ratings.

iPad:

Tank of Tanks ($0.99 → Free, 38.0 MB): Dominate your friends in chaotic tank battles in Tank of Tanks. Fans of multiplayer games.

From the creator of Mole Hammers and Soccer Physics comes this gem of a local multiplayer arcade game. Pick a corner of the iPad’s screen to sit at and prepare for battle. You’re put in control of a colorful yet deadly tank, and it’s up to you to steer it into position in order to take down your opponents. Your tank will spin and spin without any interaction, but once you hold your button down it will take off straight ahead and fire. Time your button presses to blast your opponents to bits while avoiding all other enemy fire. You have one minute to come out on top. Are you up to the challenge? The game includes support for up to four players locally, multiple arenas to battle in, customization options to make the combat even crazier, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.
