Arcade action in your pocket! KANO is erupting, match the colours to stop the lava for as long as possible. Skillful throws, spins, catches and tilts will help you get that best score and beat your friends.


KANO the new breed of free game; it offers a high quality experience to free-to-play players. KANO doesn't bombard players with ads, GLITCHE.RS decided it was important to respect all players, regardless of how they pay for their games. Players need a chance to try your game before they commit to it, one of the great strong points of free-to-play. Many games are criticised because there is no ceiling on what a player can spend, especially in kids markets. KANO has the option at any time, for a one off fee to never be bothered with lives or restrictions again for the premium in-app purchase ($4.99). It’s a small ceiling on what can be a wallet draining cost. Alternatively, players can watch incentivised adverts for lives to continue playing the game for free.
