Cupcakes and aliens, coming to a smartphone near you

Close encounters of the tasty kind
A sweet game about alien abductions

Cupcake Abductor is a new game with a simple premise. You’re an alien who’s found that it’s more fun to abduct cupcakes than people (of course!). Gather the sweets in your spaceship and avoid being hit by your enemy, the red saucer. Once you collect enough cupcakes to fill up the meter at the bottom, you earn a “sugar rush,” which lets you zip around the playing field like a toddler at a birthday party. The game, which was designed by a 13-year-old developer, is a throwback to good old-fashioned arcade fun. Complicated? No. Addictive? Oh, yes. Free, for iOS.
