The world has exploded and turned into a fiery inferno, and it’s up to you to save the falling pixel people before they get burned to a crisp by tapping on them. The the longer you wait and the closer the pixel people get to the fire before being saved, the more points you’ll earn. Bonus items will also randomly appear, which can earn you mega points. The only problem is that most of the bonus items are pretty bad, so tapping on them is a huge risk.

Pixel Hell is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 18 ratings.

Skill Game Arcade ($1.99 → Free, 21.9 MB): A true game of skill that has you endlessly counting up.

Your objective is to connect all of the numbers in ascending order without touching the lines you’ve already created. The process of doing so, however, requires a deft hand and a little strategy. Make sure to utilize the viewfinder in the top left corner of the screen, otherwise you won’t stand a chance. The game includes an unlimited number of randomly generated levels, random gifts to collect, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Skill Game Arcade is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 75 ratings.
