A Free Level

I don’t know how many times I’ve needed a level and haven’t had one on hand.  It is one of those thing that is usually too big for the toolbox so I don’t often considering buying one.

Ball in a Cup - pretty much is what it is

Simple name, simple game!
I was walking through the airport a while ago and approached the security scan area.  I took off my shoes and put my keys and laptop into the gray bin.  I proceeded to eat the banana I was carrying and I turned to my right to catch the glimpse of a security guard, who was looking at me and said,  “ Sir, you can’t take that though the checkpoint.”

Shazam - an ear for music

Have you ever been sitting in your car listening to the radio (or better yet, in a coffee shop listening to piped-in Muzak) when a great song, that you don't know the name of, starts to play?

Hanoi - welcome to Zen

I’m not a patient person.  I mean, before I go for a car ride, I’ll whine and shake like a nervous poodle with a dog park fetish.
I am always amazed when I meet someone who has perfect “zen”.

Tipper - you may never need to do math again

I have a friend who always tries to get out of paying the tip; I’m usually the one making up for it because I get full and then I get tired.  I’m too lazy to be bothered with figuring out the tip - especially if I am eating with many people.

300Bowl, is a fun bowling game that you can play in as little as 5 minutes, but that you will keep on coming back to over and over. The graphics are great, and the sound effects add to a real bowling alley experience.
