ChuChu Rocket!

The objective of ChuChu Rocket! is to guide mice into the player’s base by placing directional arrows on a grid. A cat which can eat the mice also walks on the grid and can reduce the player’s score in half if it gets into your base. It sounds easy. However, some of the mazes are complex and are sure to have you thinking and strategizing for more than a few hours.

Polarium Advance

In Polarium Advance, black and white tiles fill a grid, and by drawing a single line on the grid, flip tiles from black to white (or vice versa). Forming solid, horizontal lines of all black or all white erases tiles, and the goal is to delete the entire grid in this manner.
