A new mobile game called TAP and SMASH reminds me of some of those great classics. It incorporated loads of tapping - you can play with one finger - and no end of stuff dodge or smash.
You can smash through floating stars to score points and earn coins while avoiding floating walls and other barricades that make you the thing that gets smashed. Like the best games, it’s easy to learn but hard to master.
The game includes a multiplayer mode and a leaderboard to chart your position in the smasher universe.
TAP and SMASH is available as a free download for Android devices in the Google Play Store and for iOS devices in the iTunes App Store.
