Barrel of Donkeys
"A superb test of dexterity and left/right brain coordination" - The Guardian
"A lovingly crafted flight of fancy ... Toybox asks you to think of mobile play in a totally new way" - Gamezebo

Toybox is kinda like rubbing your head and patting your tummy at the same time.
Shoot enemy toys on the left side of the screen to earn wooden blocks on the right. Then stack the blocks to explode stuff, power up your ship and earn extra lives. Each side affects the other, so master the interaction and survive as long as you can to get a high score.

Everyone faces the same enemy patterns for a week, giving you the chance to learn them and improve. Then after a week the patterns change—so there's always a new challenge.

Play a simple shooter with one thumb and a match 3 puzzler with the other. Toybox is easy to grasp—but mastering the interaction between the two parts of the game is a satisfying and original challenge.

Lost your last life? Quick, you’ve still got a moment to pull off a desperate block combo and get back in the game.

Your in-game actions trigger the notes that make up the toy-like melody.

N.B. If you're playing on an iPad, try the "exaggerated" control scheme option.
