See how quickly you can run the 100 metres, try and beat your friend’s best times.<br><br>It’s interesting for about three runs, but after that you’re likely to get a bit bored. The competitive edge is likely to drag you back in the short term if you see someone has beaten your score, but it’s unlikely people will keep mashing in the long term. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Track+and+Field+100M/review.asp?c=72261'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Track+and+Field+100M/review.asp?c=72261 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 18:15:00 GMT Review: Pac-Man Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-joroun_pac-man_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Pac-Man Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> What more can you say about <em>Pac-Man</em>? Like the other arcade games on offer in Messenger, this one sees you trying to set as high a score as possible with a single life.<br><br>You swipe to move around the maze, and everything you remember from the classic iteration of the game is in place. It’s simple, it’s<em> Pac-Man</em>, and that’s about all there is to it. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Pac%2DMan+%28Facebook%29/review.asp?c=72260'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Pac%2DMan+%28Facebook%29/review.asp?c=72260 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 18:00:00 GMT Review: Galaga Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-jpgvz_galaga_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Galaga Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>Galaga</em> is definitely the better of the two shooter available on Facebook Messenger. It’s slicker and faster than <em>Space Invaders</em>, without ever being overwhelming.<br><br>You’re still sliding a finger along the bottom of the screen to move, but you fire automatically, and that just feels more natural.<br><br>The one-life score chasing is still in place, and if you want an arcade game to challenge your friends with this should be the one you go for. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Galaga+%28Facebook%29/review.asp?c=72259'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Galaga+%28Facebook%29/review.asp?c=72259 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 17:45:00 GMT Review: Wordalot Express Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-gkmyg_wordalot-express_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Wordalot Express Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>Wordalot Express</em> is a crossword game that sees you trying to figure out words based on a picture. It looks good and there’s a polish to it that means everything runs smoothly.<br><br>It’s not super tough but it does get frustrating when you’re stuck on a single word and can’t for the life of you figure it out. There are better games to waste your time on. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Wordalot+Express/review.asp?c=72256'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Wordalot+Express/review.asp?c=72256 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 17:30:00 GMT Review: The Tribez: Puzzle Rush Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-hqrsu_the-tribez-puzzle-rush_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="The Tribez: Puzzle Rush Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>The Tribez: Puzzle Rush</em> is a pretty standard match-three puzzler.

There’s a grid of coloured shapes and you need to clear it all by tapping groups of two or more blobs of the same hue.<br><br>But you need to plan your moves to ensure that the bricks you pop aren’t blocking you from connecting new chains. It’s not original, but it’s surprisingly compulsive. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Brick+Pop/review.asp?c=72254'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Brick+Pop/review.asp?c=72254 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 16:30:00 GMT Review: Words With Friends Frenzy Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-weeyew_words-with-friends-frenzy_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Words With Friends Frenzy Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>Words With Friends: Frenzy</em> takes the basic<em> Scrabble </em>shape of the original and then throws a good deal of panic into it.<br><br>You need to make words with the tiles you’ve got.

Wait too long to place your next word and your tile bar will fill up and it’ll be game over. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Words+With+Friends+Frenzy/review.asp?c=72253'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Words+With+Friends+Frenzy/review.asp?c=72253 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 16:00:00 GMT Review: Zoo Keeper Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-zviz_zoo-keeper_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Zoo Keeper Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>Zoo Keeper </em>is a shrunk down version of the popular franchise.

Once it clicks you’re going to enjoy spending time with this one. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Hex+FRVR/review.asp?c=72251'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Hex+FRVR/review.asp?c=72251 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:00:00 GMT Review: 2020 Connect Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-avvc_2020-connect_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="2020 Connect Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>2020 Connect</em> is a number matching puzzle that sees you trying to bash together four of the same integer.<br><br>There’s a bit of strategy here, and every time you move a number some more pop up.

You slide a bar along the bottom of the screen, bouncing a ball off it to smash blocks.<br><br>Clear the blocks, move on to the next level. It plays remarkably well, and the one-life, one-score element adds a frisson of excitement too. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Arkanoid+%28Facebook%29/review.asp?c=72246'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Facebook+and+social/Arkanoid+%28Facebook%29/review.asp?c=72246 Wed, 30 Nov 2016 13:00:00 GMT Review: Space Invaders Facebook Messenger review <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-zjfa_space-invaders_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Space Invaders Facebook Messenger review" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> <em>Space Invaders</em> is <em>Space Invaders</em>.
