AAQR: Safari! / Safari! HD (free, $1.99)

NOTE: There are four versions of this: regular, regular lite, HD, and HD lite. The lite versions are free.

Safari! is basically another variant on Bejeweled, except the board is now "hex", and you remove tiles by "tracing" the matching and touching ones. All the hexes are animals: lion, zebra, hippo, elephant, and later, monkey and others. In the screenshot, this guy was able to trace/chain together 24 different elephant hexes.

There are multiple game modes (lite version only have 'survival')

  • 'survival' (until your time runs out, but the more you do the more time you got)
  • 'time attack' 100 seconds to see how many points you can score
  • 'endless' see how many you can do until you ran out of moves?
The HD version has better graphics, basically, but plays the same. The tiles are based on various animals you can find on an African safari, such as lions, monkeys, elephants, giraffes, and so on. 

Gameplay has little to do with safari. I guess if you need a bit of diversion playing the lite version ain't bad. The other modes? Rather superfluous, IMHO.
