PuckFun, by MoMoGames is a fun game that I wrote about not long ago in myQuick Picks.It's a fun game that's really three, different games in one. You can play Shootout, Shuffle Puck, and Air Hockey ... whatever suits your mood. PuckFun can be played across a Local Area Network, or LAN, for even more fun. Blast the puck at your opponent and see who wins!

PuckFun has 20 exciting levels and the full version has nine opponents for you to go up against. It's a face-paced game that'll keep you on your toes. As you go along you can collect bonuses that will give you some special abilities, like freezing your opponent, slowing down the puck, and much more. This is the kind of game that's fun for the whole family and it can probably become quite addictive. So, if you've been looking for a game that's fast, fun, and not gory, take a good look at PuckFun. I think you'll like it.
