Hasbro, which produced Easy-Bake Treats, has released a classic many of us remember fondly from our childhood. Children and adults can control Sweetie Potamus, Veggie Potamus, Hungry Hippo and Bottomless Potamus (they have names now, apparently) while they devour virtual rolly balls.
And with this version, you don't have to worry about it breaking or losing so many balls that you're just playing to capture two balls and a fight breaks out. In addition to the usual four-player version, the app can also be played solo with the device controlling the other hippos.
