WeChat released a new selection of mini-games in April, and there is one that is on the rise to become one of the most popular mini-games the platform: “The Best Tan Yi Tan” or “The Best Bounce and Bounce ” (最强弹一弹; our translation).

Tan Yi Tan resembles the classic arcade game pinball and has the qualities of addicting mobile games—players simply press down on the screen and move in horizontal directions to determine the angle at which the ball will be released, and collect points for each geometric object hit. As with all mini-games, the scores can be shared with friends on WeChat.

Mini-games have taken WeChat by storm attracting 170 million daily active users on the messaging platform. The most popular of all is none other than Tiao Yi Tiao, also known as Jump and Jump, which was released last September. The game is so popular that WeChat recently dedicated an entire competition to Tiao Yi Tiao.
