On the other hand, we have Toastache. This is a fun little game that involves a piece of toast with a mustache traveling and collecting butter along the way.
“Help Mr Toastache on his travels in this fun, yet simple game. How far can you get before Mr Toastache becomes toast? Collect the butter fuel as you jump along – this can then be used to activate your rockets and fly. Collecting butter also helps increase your final score. Can you make it on the highscore list?” the app description reads.
