Adult Swim’s Five Minutes to Kill (Yourself), Other Games Hit App Store

Monday saw the release of three more games to the App Store: Adult Swim’s Five Minutes to Kill (Yourself), Hydrix’s puzzle game Roto, and Highlights Hidden Pictures.

Five Minutes to Kill (Yourself) (US$2.99) shines the harsh light of satire on office life, giving players to figure out how to kill themselves before the next boring meeting starts. Things found around the three-story office building include not just staplers and copy machines but also a shark tank, a pack of rabid weasels, and more. Multiplayer mode offers a two-person race to the death and Facebook Connect integration lets gamers show off their high scores, preferably during working hours.

Roto ($2.99) is one of those match-three puzzle games that’s billed as simple to play but difficult to master. Three game modes are included – puzzle, arcade, and action – along with statistics tracking and a global scoring system.

Highlights Hidden Pictures ($1.99) features the same seek-and-find games found in the venerable children’s magazine. Eight puzzles are included, with two free ones available when players register. As players find the hidden objects in the black-and-white drawings, they turn to color.
