Rayman Jungle Run may look like something you’ve played before at first, but it’s definitely not just another endless runner game. Sure, you’ll tap the screen to make him jump as he runs left to right, but the game includes over 40 hand-crafted levels to master instead of randomly-generated excursions. What’s great about all the levels is that they don’t take longer than a minute to beat. This means players can go back and restart a stage without feeling like they have to dedicate hours into the game again. Read the Full Review Here.

Wimp: Who Stole My Pants is a rather humorous platform game that brings out the immaturity in all of us. In this game, players search for stolen underpants in toxic sewage while collecting toilet paper rolls along the way. There’s a lot to explore in each level, and players won’t be able to resist cracking a smile while playing. Wimp is one of the better platformer games that I have played. There’s 60 levels for gamers to explore and the repay value is high as gamers work toward finding all three toilet paper rolls as quickly as possible and the lucky pair of underwear.
