The scenic puzzle scenarios are particularly effective on the iPad. Screenshots, further information and the download you can find here.

Probably doesn't need an overly large description South Park: Phone Destroyer. The free game, approved for ages 17 and over, is a mixture of a fantasy fighting game and a trading card game.

The game designed for multiple players Space team is exactly the right thing for the New Year's Eve celebration or to spend time with the (younger) family members on the Christmas holidays. In short, it's about: Everyone has a spaceship control panel in front of them that has more or less useful controls. In the course of the game, commands are shown that you have to carry out - if you do not have the control unit mentioned in it on your desk, you have to ask another player to carry out the command on yourself. But since everyone receives orders at the same time and these are updated faster and faster, there is quick chaos, raised voices and alarms on board. Sounds good? Then take a look at it.

So why not switch to digital alternatives? For example, between the years you can go with Fireworks Laboratory Combine different virtual fireworks for free and thus compose a festive spectacle.
