Get Coconut Dodge!
Dodge falling coconuts. The concept seems simple enough, yet this game requires serious skill to master its 30 levels.

If Coconut Dodge sounds more like the name of an oversized, beat-up car than a cool smartphone game, don’t be fooled. The downloadable version of the game for the Playstation 3 was named the Playstation Network Game of the Year for 2010. Why the hoopla? Because this simple, casual game may be easy to pick up, but it’s hard to master. Dodging falling coconuts to drive up a high score? Not as effortless as you might think.
Using a pair of touch buttons, you control a crab (yes, you read that right) and steer it around a single-screen beach while coconuts fall from the trees. Coins, jewels, and other objects also drop out of the sky. Catch them to increase your score. As you make your way through the game’s 30 levels, Coconut Dodge grows pretty challenging as huge batches of coconuts fall, creating inventive mazes that you have to carefully dodge through. It’s a game so simple but so well made that it’s hard not to love it.
