Screenshot from gameArabcrunch reported news on Abdulrahman Al-Zanki developer of the very popular and addictive Doodle Destroy and many others receiving over 1 million downloads for his games on iTunes and growing.

The creator describes the objective of his hit game as:

“Try a smart physics puzzle action. In Doodle Destroy, your goal is to keep the blue cube on the gray blocks. Tap to destroy the red blocks. While at it, the other blocks may fall or tip over based on real physics action. Good timing and smart thinking will help you to complete your goal.”

The apps receiving the most downloads are free, but games like DoodleBounce and Doodle Destroy 2 which are priced at $0.99 each have received over a 100,000 downloads, meaning this kid should be about ready to stop asking for an allowance.

With 2 dozen games now available on iTunes and a lifetime ahead of him, this kid appears to be heading in the right direction. You can find Doodle Destroy on iTunes here.
