Devour ramen



Top a burger with oodles of instant noodles.

Ahh, the ramen burger. It's the cronut's savory counterpart: A juicy beef patty topped with green onion and arugula, swaddled between two salty ramen noodle "buns."

Since Keizo Shimamoto debuted the dish at a food festival in Brooklyn, N.Y., people have waited in line for hours to get their hands on some of this salty, noodle-y goodness. [...]

If you don't have the patience to wait on long lines, you might be better off trying to make this tasty dish for yourself. And guess what? It's way simpler than you think.

Flow colors



Connect matching colors to create a flow.

Briefly, your challenge is to connect all the dots on the grid, without leaving any spot empty. You can only connect dots of the same color to create a flow between them. The total number of flows equals the minimum amount of moves necessary to complete the level in a perfect manner. As the game passes through levels, the grid becomes larger, and you are faced with more and more dots, making it increasingly difficult to solve the puzzles.
