Break the Bricks

If you love brick breaker game as much as I do, then you will really enjoy Break the Bricks.

Break the Bricks is a block breaker game where you have to bounce a ball off of a platform so that it can travel up and break the line of bricks above you. This is a classic game, but Break the Bricks is filled with fun power-ups such as extra balls, speed increases, platform width increases, and many more.

I had a lot of fun playing Break the Bricks and I am sure you will too. Download it and give it a try!

Coiny Block

Are you a fan of clocker games like Clicker Hero or Cookie Clicker, but think that they could use a little extra? Coiny Block thought so too, so they added a twist!

Coiny Block is similar to other clicker games except that there are obstacles that you must avoid while you are clicking.

This mechanic completely changes how enjoyable and engaging games like this are. Instead of just mindlessly clicking the same spot multiple times until you level up, you must pay attention to the objects on screen and dodge them while you are clicking. Otherwise, you will lose your lives and all that clicking will be for nothing!

Coiny Block is a simple game, but it is very fun! Download it and try it out!

Bouncy Ball NG

Side scrollers have been a staple in video games since their beginnings, but Bouncy Ball NG helps to spice up the genre a bit more by adding one new mechanic.

In Bouncy Ball NG you control a ball that must move through a multitude of levels and collect green bricks. After you collect enough, a blue brick will appear somewhere in the level that will allow you to exit.

The difference between this and other games, however, is that your ball is constantly moving up and down and you must time the left and right motions correctly in order to move through the level. This is a very fun concept and a great take on a classic genre.

Download Bouncy Ball and play it for a few minutes, hours, weeks, its great!

Work Hours Agent

Do you work on your own schedule or would like to schedule yourself in a more efficient way? Well, Work Hours Agent is here to help.

Work Hours Agent allows you to start and stop your work hour times. You can also pause and play the timer in the case of any breaks or disruptions you might experience during your work time. Then, after your work day is over if logs your times and keeps track of them. You can even print your times out in a PDF format if you need to.

Work Hours Agent is a great app for keeping up with your work times and might even help you win your overtime claims! Download it and try it out on your next work cycle.

Orson Remind Me

If you have trouble keeping all of your tasks in order and making sure you have everything done for the day, then Orson Remind Me might be just what you need in order to fix this issue.

Orson Remind Me is a reminder app that gives you a new cat assistant named Orson! Orson will help to remind you of things you need to do in three different ways. The first is a little nudge, the second is a normal reminder, and the third will pester you multiple times to make sure that you do the task. Also, there is an achievement system that you can get rewards from for completing tasks on time.

Orson Remind Me is a simple and fun way to make sure that you are getting everything done! If you need more organization, download it and let Orson be your guide.
