Whack An Alien With Popies for Android
Yet another concept for a classic game taken to our Android smartphones. The Whack-a-(insert what you want to whack) is a natural born enemy to most touchscreen devices, so if you install this game, just make sure that you keep the device away from small children. XDA member cubewalker‘s Popies basically is a clone of the whack-a-mole game, but in this case, you are popping up aliens that are coming from the ground. Each time you smash one of these cute little space invaders, you may be rewarded with money. Once you collect enough, you will be able to get some upgrades like a more powerful hammer. The game play is rather smooth and graphics are a surefire way of pleasing the kid inside you (and the ones running around your house if you are a parent).
Please leave some feedback if you enjoy this game or if you find any bugs to be corrected.

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
