Amongst the abundance of well-known apps and new ones posted every day there are far more available than our capacity to review Nevertheless, the testing team from AndroidPIT always bravely embark on a search for new "pearls" in the application jungle.

Features & Use
Crazy Dentist - Fun games is a typical representative of those games that are just pure fun and require no adaptation period. The user starts the game and with just a few inputs, the game system is initialized and the gaming experience can begin.
In Crazy Dentist the player takes on the guise of a (who would have guessed it?) crazy dentist who is "unleashed" on different patients. Maniacal release is probably the best description of the procedures he performs, because the dental equipment looks very painful. Also, judging by the facial expressions of the patients, the procedures must not be very enjoyable - but that can probably be attributed mostly to the dentist himself.
The ''players'' available in the game are four different patients and the various tools are described with small pictures. You can even pull teeth, if they are beyond repair - or if the player develops a particular sadistic streak and just wants to pull teeth "for fun." The four patients have very little difference between them, but you have to admit that this game doesn't look like it was really designed for long-term enjoyment.
The "pathology" of the various patients are also largely similar and, as a player, one does not really feel the urge to play this game again and again. Once I'd played the game a few times I started to lack the motivation to start over. This is mainly due to the complete absence of competitive or other motivational elements. There is a sadistic pleasure you want to come back to, however.
The gameplay itself is enjoyable enough, but it's unlikely that this concept would evoke long-term commitment from a player. Yet there are so many ways to expand the diversity of the game. A competitive multiplayer mode would be possible, in which results depend on speed and precision. Also a timed mode would be conceivable for single player fun.
But the best single player mode conceivable would be a campaign in which you build your own dental practice and patient care needs step by step, and the time pressure and difficulty from patient to patient gradually increases.
Crazy Dentist makes for some great fun right off the bat in the first minutes of the game and is a nice game for in between times. Unfortunately, the game displays too little long-term motivation and the existing potential of the game mechanics are unnecessarily wasted in my eyes.
Screen & Controls
The entire graphical presentation of Crazy Dentist - Fun games is kept in a cartoonish style and is in keeping with the spirit of the application. Anyone who calls his game Crazy Dentist is probably not intending to use photo-realistic representations!
The operation of the application is good and during the test period there were no moments of frustration caused by handling. Bottom line, Crazy Dentist put in a very good performance in this area.
Speed & Stability
The application crashed just a single time during the test period. Otherwise, Crazy Dentist - Fun games ran without complaint.
Crazy Dentist - Fun games is free, but with very obtrusive advertising, in the Play Store.
