banner

Need another casual game that is simple in concept and takes little attention while still posing a challenge?  You know, something to say, occupy your hands and wandering mind while you’re having your what have now become daily hour-long phone calls with your mother (love ya mom)?  I came across one such situation and found another wonderful app to fill my time and entertain my fingers.  I’m talking about Tricky Tracing.

Ever wanted to relive your favorite childhood gaming nostalgia, but with, ya know, a lot more cool stuff.  Like zombies, and strippers, and several references that would fly right over the head of a young child?  Well, you probably never actually wanted that, but now that you hear it, it doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, right?…Well, if you said yes, (you’re probably a bit sadistic, maybe you should talk to a professional) then Organ Trail is your cup of tea.
