For me, it's that I love puzzles. And the device is well suited to the simple controls necessitated by puzzle games. Today's puzzle distraction game of the day is Tentacle Wars.
You might be familiar with Tentacle Wars from its original Flash game. To save alien lifeforms from an invading and aggressive infection, you have to take a microscope to their insides. Taking charge of the antibodies and combining their energy force will allow you to overtake the enemy cells.
Playing smart will let you overtake enemy cells before they consume yours. Some levels—and their respective alien lifeforms—are difficult. Sometimes barriers block your way. But building a strategy to face new challenges—either against an AI or friends—is the fun of Tentacle Wars.
