Circle Stop is an addictingly simple one-button game for touch devices, from New York City's newest three person indie game studio Twenty Percent Games.
As the spinner goes round and round, tap anywhere to stop it. Hit anywhere on the target to score points. Hit the bullseye for even more points. Miss the target and get a strike; three strikes and you're out! But no matter what happens, there will be explosions of colors!
Complete with leaderboards so you can challenge your friends!

Easy though it is to pick up, it is less easy to explain. But here goes:
These circles just float (like bubbles) about the screen just waiting for something to squash (should that be squish?) into. You give 'em what they want with a simple tap to the screen and, if you're lucky, it'll start a chain reaction of explosions, points, fun, and everything else you've been missing. OK, maybe not everything. Anyway. The floating bubbles get squashed into blobs and then more floating circles cascade into those squashed circles/blobs. Honestly, you'll just have to try it. It's awesome. Try and get a chain reaction where every circle on the screen explodes and you'll be rewarded for your amazingly clever "Whole in one"... it'll make perfect sense once you're engrossed in the fun of playing it. Simple.
Can you make the top-10 of the Best Squishers (yes that's a word) Ever? Will you be The Kings and Queens of exploding bubbles? The Masters of the bubbly chain reaction?
Have you installed it yet? Seriously, you'll have more fun playing the game than reading this. It’ll be a lot simpler. I'm allowed 4000 characters of rambling, you know! Not sure I'm up to that, but I'll give it a shot. Last chance to just install this fun little game and find out for yourself? No? Still reading? You must love reading. Let me give you a small lecture on how the scoring works in Circle Squish, because that will INCREASE THE FUN and you will install it:
When you tap the screen a Trigger Circle is placed. You can earn Spare Triggers (aka Spare Squishies) for being "super-awesome at Circle Squish" (keep reading). When a circle/ball/bubble/blob/whatever-you-want-to-call-them floats into another squashed bubble/circle/ball/blob/oh-you-get-the-idea it too will explode and become "squished" - this is the aforementioned "chain reaction". Each explosion, each squished circle, gives you points. The points will make you happy and are a measure of the fun you're having. More points = more fun (a bit like a driving license, but without the disapproval). Each explosion gets roughly 50% more points than the squashed bubble it has collided with. If another ball collides with that it'll be 50% more again. It is this that makes the winners. That can be a lot of points. And points are? FUN.
What is a Spare Trigger?
Glad you asked. You can use your spare triggers to make more than one trigger per level. This is useful if you're on your last chance for the level and there's still loads of circles floating about. Beware though! It will cost you a reduction in score for that level. And you have to earn them.
How do I get Spare Triggers?
Another good question!
By being super-awesome at playing Circle Squish.
And by passing a level with a 3 in it. Well some of them, anyway.
How do I be Super-Awesome-at-Circle-Squish?
Allow me to explain!
Invoke a chain-reaction and squash every circle on every level.
Wow! You've read to the end. That's persistence. Time to install Circle Squish and apply that same perseverance to squashing circles. Someone as driven as you no doubt makes their own luck, but BEST OF LUCK ANYWAY. Hope you make #1.
