    Bato: Treasures of Tibet

    This is a small file (about 25mb) with simple, but nice graphics. There
    is a story involved, but it seems out of place, so I am glad that you
    can skip these scenes.

    Bato is a matching game, but nothing like your typical match-3. Your
    goal is to aim a ball at a like-colored ball and try to hit it by using
    pool-like mechanics. A match of two is enough to clear the balls, and
    they don't have to stay touching, they just need to click together.
    Making matches of more than two will get you more points, of course, as
    will making ricochet shots. You can also get extra points by shooting a
    new ball before the others stop moving.

    The first eight levels of the game teach you the basics. Very easy to
    understand and not much of a challenge... THEN you get to your first
    "village". Now you will have bonuses, strange gravity effects (such as
    the middle of the board seeming to be magnetic), and more.

    The further you go with the game, the more you have to think about
    strategy. It's definitely a try-it-and-see type of game, but be sure to
    give it at least 20 minutes to give it a fair assessment.
