Teething is a casual indie game from developer Jake William Robinson (metzopiano on Appolicious). It’s a nice throwback to vintage era video-games with its pixelated graphics and chiptunes music. How long can you keep your tooth healthy as endless amounts of candy pour down from above? Health restoring toothpaste, as well as a variety of power-ups granted by a tooth fairy, should help you along.
