Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use.

Jelly Joo Game Brings Alien Bombing Fun to Android
For one reason or another, it seems that many Android game developers enjoy creating puzzle games. Regardless of why this is the case, if you’re looking for a puzzle game, they’re not hard to find.

It features over 60 levels with increasingly difficult puzzles, as well as some surprises for the gamers. If you have trouble learning, there’s a semi-instructional video in the Google Play Store description. It’s always comforting to know we embrace interplanetary guests by blowing them up until they leave.
