Crash through buildings and zip line with a cane in Granny Smith [App of the Day]

Debuting back in 2012, Granny Smith seemed to be one of those breakout games that would climb the app charts.  I thought the game was excellent, and I still do, but I never noticed anyone playing it and none of my friends or family asked about it.  The game has been successful, but has not quite reached the level of Candy Crush Saga, or Angry Birds.

Today, I would like to present to some and introduce to others, Granny Smith from Mediocre Games.

Granny Smith pits you (Granny) against an apple thief on skates, with the goal of getting to your apples before the thief does.  The game is fast-paced and the action starts from the beginning.  Get back your apples by skating, breaking through glass and other objects, flipping, and zip lining your way through the game.  The physics engine allows for shards and particles to fly everywhere as you bust through windows, walls and crates.

Coins are earned by riding over them while progressing through the various levels, and can be used to purchase equipment to help Granny along the way.

With close to 29,000 reviews, I’m sure this game has been played by some, but a game like this should be enjoyed by all. Get the word out. Tell your friends about this gem of a game.
