Reduce numbers to zero, match elements to produce gold, and entertain your baby with today’s collection of apps and games.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.


The Playmatic ($1.99 → Free, 17.7 MB): Keep your baby entertained with The Playmatic. Parents with young children.

The Playmatic is an interactive playground for your baby. It includes four baby-safe games: Magic Wand, Bubble Bath, Balloons, and Hot Air Balloons. All four feature different interaction methods that will keep your baby entrained for hours. It’s also free of pop-ups, settings, and other menu items to ensure their little fingers don’t cause any problems.

The Playmatic is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 55 ratings.

Slide Tetromino Premium ($0.99 → Free, 100.6 MB): Collect keys by melting the ice around them in Slide Tetromino. Fans of sliding puzzle games.

Each level includes a single flame, movable pieces, and very little room to operate in. It’s up to you to slide the pieces every which way in order to create a path from the frozen key to the flame. Levels aren’t timed, but your moves will be counted. The game includes a total of 100 levels.

Slide Tetromino Premium is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 557 ratings.

Aureus Prime ($1.99 → Free, 84.9 MB): Match elements to produce gold in Aureus. Anyone who wants to work on their memorization skills.

Take a good look at the board while it is lit up because the lights will go out! You must then match elements to create electrical currents that will briefly illuminate the board, disintegrate the elements, and turn them into gold. While the board is briefly illuminated from creating a match, you will have another chance at seeing where elements are located and how they’re aligned. If you wind up not getting a good enough look, you can use a hint. The game includes three modes, loads of ways to upgrade your gold producing machine, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Aureus Prime is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 65 ratings.

Zero+ ($0.99 → Free, 2.4 MB): Swipe to slide numbered tiles in order to make them all zeroes in Zero. Fans of logic-based puzzle games.

The basic gameplay mechanics in Zero are simple enough. You must slide positive and negative numbered tiles around the board in order to achieve zero. The first few levels consist of just ones and twos, but things get crazy pretty quickly when large numbers and new kinds of modifier tiles enter the mix. Also, keep in mind that tiles won’t stop sliding unless they run into something. The game includes a total of 120 levels.

Zero+ is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 56 ratings.
