Angry Birds may have made the projectile puzzle genre popular, but any good video game historian knows that Crush the Castle paved the way for the Rovio franchise. Crush the Castle is the original free flash game where players smash different fortresses using the medieval trebuchet. The goal of the game is to kill all the inhabitants of each level using the designated amount of shots. Players can unlock different projectiles with new capabilities as they advance through new kingdoms, and build their own castles for other players to destroy.

As it turns out, Apple will sell its first-ever clear iPhone case to show off the colorful iPhone XR body.
Prey Day: Survival is a zombie survival game that is almost identical to Last Day on Earth. It takes place in the city of Harbortown which has been destroyed by a mysterious virus. You must collect materials to craft tools and build your own shelter while completing side missions to investigate the cause of infection that wiped out most of the population. Unlike Last Day, Prey Day promises a "huge online" world at launch. Players can communicate with other players to form clans, complete clan missions and establish a clan base. You can also go solo and fight other players to steal their loot.
