Bunny Beat

We don't know much about the new film Hop, but the rabbit's got that cute thing going on, and this game's a fun little rhythm exercise. Press buttons on the screen in mimicry of the bunny's antics on the drums.

Wood Puzzle Easter Colors

This is just a fun little puzzle game with Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies depicted in quite a pretty wood-like finish. As well as offering puzzles, it's also an exercise in learning colours, with colour names given in both English and Spanish.

Egglomania

AU$1.19

This puzzle game would stand on its own quite well, but here it has the added bonus of Easter eggs! The aim is to match eggs in rows in three different directions to clear them out of the carton before they crack.

Doodle Jump: HOP The Movie

Free

This is a free version of Doodle Jump also featuring the bunny from Hop. It also changes the gameplay a little by introducing finite levels with an end objective, and a painterly Easter theme. We're pleased to see the Lima Sky dudes doing well.

Egg vs. Chicken

AU$1.19

It's the age-old conundrum: which came first? Egg vs. Chicken is a combination puzzle/strategy game where, as the eggs, you must fight off the hordes of marauding chickens. Why chickens would be marauding eggs is anyone's guess, but just relax and have fun.
