I am going to show you a game. It costs about a buck on the Play Store and is very fun. However, once you begin playing it, you will have roughly five minutes until you either scream, demand a refund, or your head explodes. There are no other options. The game is called Puk. And it is insane.

puk1 puk2 puk3

The concept is simple. At the start of each level, you are given a set number of slingshot-able pucks (I get it!). You have to hit a number of large white circles on the play field with said pucks (...ohhh. Now I get it.) before time runs out. Sounds simple? You know nothing!! Some of the circles have to be hit more than once. Sometimes the puck gets stuck on the main board and you have to shake to get it to move or you lose! Sometimes it bounces all the way back into the starting area and you can fling it again. Sometimes your brain screams for you to stop.

This game is extremely fun, but in the interest of full transparency, there is a good chance that you will either become addicted to this game immediately, or become too frustrated to keep it up. The game is rapid and merciless. You should definitely take advantage of the 15-minute return window to see if you want to keep it. Grab it from the widget below, but don't say I didn't warn you.

    Well, it seemed fun but it crashed 4 times on me. Couldn't get past the 5th or 6th level. No force close, just kicked out of the app for no reason. I have a Note 2 so there's no way I was accidentally hitting an on screen button or something.

    The Play store says 1-5 installs. So... every single person who has ever installed it is either the writer of this article or one of the 4 people who left comments about it here.

      Well, it was published to the Play Store just yesterday... so there's that...

      Also, at the time of this writing, it's now saying 100-500.

    Anyone else having trouble installing this on a Nexus 7? It gives me an error message saying ”Couldn't install on USB storage or SD card". Refund window gone, devs don't answer, what gives?
