App of the Day: Pinch Peeps

We're sure that we've never played a matching game with such frantic action as Pinch Peeps.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

To fill this week's cute quota, we have Pinch Peeps. It's another matching game, but once again, not quite what you might have been expecting. Your screen will be populated by shapes with eyes — bright, adorable shapes — and you use your iDevice's multi-touch feature to pinch them together, like lost lovebirds. Sounds like a cinch, right? Not so fast. You lose points if you miss — which is surprisingly easy to do — and as you advance through the levels, barricades will lose you points if you hit them; there are also wandering bombs that really, really want to blow everything to smithereens. It's easy to play, but challenging to play well.
