Shrek is making his first appearance on the Fire in a go-kart game that'll have you spinning your wheels! (Ok, I'm not sure what that means). It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this game is pretty much sure to be a hit!

Showing off our game of the week today. If you're looking for a little mystery as you search around an old, haunted mansion, this game is definitely for you. Take a look!

Name: The Secret of Grisly Manor
Rating: 3.3 stars over 1,368 reviews
Price: 0.99
Your grandfather, a highly eccentric inventor, has mysteriously vanished, and the police have listed him as a missing person. But you receive a letter from your Grandfather dismissing reports of his disappearance! "Please come at once," his letter says, "I have something to show you!" Just what is your grandfather up to? You're about to embark on a very strange hunt for clues in his foreboding and strange mansion, Grisly Manor.

The Secret of Grisly Manor is a classic game of hunting down the clues and solving the brain busting puzzles. Scattered throughout your grandfather's mansion are a series of weird, seemingly unrelated objects that hold the secret to his whereabouts.

As you explore the manor, you pick and store items until you need to use them. What the devil do you need that fishbowl for? Which way should the four wooden owls be facing? And how are you going to extract the wrench that's frozen solid in the freezer?

This next app is very similar to Fruit Ninja and all of those "swipe at the objects falling down the screen" type of games. It's a nice, free alternative!

Name: Fruit Slice
Rating: 3.8 stars over 108 reviews
Price: 0.00
Fruuuit fight! Never before has the slicing and dicing of succulent and smash-worthy fruit been so crucial. You're a sword-toting warrior with one mission: Demonstrate your ability to make juice from these delicious enemies, and leave no whole fruit behind.

Using your mighty sword-simulating finger, slice the fruit as it's tossed upward from the bottom of your screen. Quickly slice the fruit before it falls back out of your reach. The face of the enemy is an assortment of juicy and colorful fruits with one thing in common: they all must be destroyed.

Watermelon, apples, bananas, kiwi, pears, strawberries, coconuts, pineapples, and tomatoes are waiting to be sliced to smithereens, leaving behind only their juicy remnants on the wall behind them.

Lastly, we've got a game that everyone should be familiar with. It's got some nice reviews and is apparently a little challenging. Check it out!

Name: Tic Tac Toe
Rating: 4.0 stars over 33 reviews
Price: 0.00
Take on a friend or play against the device in this chalkboard classic. Tic Tac Toe Free is a fun way to pass the time, whether you're standing in line or spending time with the kids. And you won't have to waste paper to do it.

Optime's trademark clean, simple design is apparent throughout the app. With the sound turned on you'll hear each move as it's made on the board. You'll also hear a sympathetic crowd groan at your losses and cheer mightily at your wins.

Tic Tac Toe Free supports one-player and two-player gameplay, so you can play against another human or against your device. Choose the latter, and three different difficulty levels ensure you will find a computer player that matches your skill level. If you're really bored, you can even watch your phone play against itself. A move randomization engine ensures that your device won't keep making the same moves over and over again.
