Going with a classic here. Bewjeled is one of those games that anybody can play anytime (and they do). If there's anyone left on the planet who doesn't have it, now's your chance!

Name: Bejeweled 2
Rating: 3.2 stars over 471 reviews
Price: 2.99
Bejeweled is back! The casual game that became a phenomenon a few years ago on the Web returns with this engaging sequel from the folks at PopCap Games. As you may know by now, Bejeweled is an immensely popular matching puzzle game with a great interface and addicting gameplay.

Bejeweled 2 is simple, relaxing, and fun: The object of the game is to line up at least three identical gems in a row. Swap adjacent gems to make matches. Tap on the gem you want to move and then tap again on the space where you want it to go. Every time you make a successful match, those jewels burst into showers of brilliant color. Match four or more jewels to create prized power gems, yielding higher scores and more dazzling cascades of light. Match five gems to create a Hyper cube--with startling, explosive results.

Having trouble spotting the next match? If necessary, you can get hints "on demand" to point you toward that elusive matching opportunity. (You can turn this feature on or off in the game's menu.)

Crazy Snowboard pushes the boundaries of smartphone snowboarding with a huge array of trick combinations and controls that take full advantage of Android's tilt capabilities. From gravity defying trick attempts, to rail riding runs, to the occasional zombie/elf/snowman smack down, it's a surreal take on this essential winter pastime.

Crazy Snowboard has over 29 missions covering an array of challenges. Missions vary both by task requirement and time allotment. Missions involve everything from slaloming through gates, to jumping through glowing air bound rings, to smashing 15 peaceful sedentary snowmen. Supplement your runs with liberally placed point-packed combos to up your standing and get the maximum number of stars. For full completion you must attain 3 stars on all 30 missions.
