There's something magical about shooting stick figures in the head from extreme distance. After years of being persecuted by these two-dimensional, monochrome tyrants, humanity is finally rising up at taking back their dignity. Pure fiction, but it helps me justify two separate Clear Vision sniper titles on the iPhone paid charts—one in the top spot.

I suppose the fact that they're also pretty damn fun helps. They don't need to ride on a ridiculously popular cartoon like Fionna Fights - Adventure Time or a mediocre superhero movie like The Amazing Spider-Man. Good for them.

Last week's clone situation seems to have resolved itself, with the clone of What's the Word? renaming itself—and keeping the top free spot in the process. Oh well.
