There's only one so far; Tales of the Adventure Company. At least that one looks pretty awesome. Hopefully the IAPs don't mess up any of these plus there's always a later release of games in the afternoon so fingers crossed!

Please note that I am not a moderator; I can't change thread titles, delete threads etc. I'm happy to help where I can but it's likely faster to contact a mod for assistance.

Hi, OriginalDex! This is Jody McAdams, the developer of Glacier Rush! At time 12:56 in the video, you will see a strange looking fish appear which gets collected at 13:01. That is the Fish Rush powerup, which causes a massive amount of fish to appear in-game.

This is not the only special fish that can appear in the game. Someone will eventually figure out how to make a much more insane power-up appear. And once you figure it out, you will feel power overwhelming.

I didn't notice it... anyway the gameplay is just too repetitive, with too few stuff (like rush fish) giving some variety to the gameplay: but that's just my opinion (or, better, my tastes), I guess that many will not agree with me and will enjoy the game (like many enjoyed, for example, Flappy Bird, another game with no upgrades or powerups), so...
