JOPLIN, MO.--- Les Olson is a CPA in downtown Joplin. When he's not helping people do their taxes, he's creating a new apps called Furballs. The game is similar to the old duck hunt game on the original Nintendo, only with an updated look. 

Various animals have stolen your air compressor and are inflated. The animals float and dance around the screen. Your mission is to shoot their fur off with various weapons. Olson has worked on the game for more than a year and is ready for it to be released. 

"I'm excited about it. I'm nervous really right now. I hope the rest of the public enjoys it the way I've enjoyed it, and get out of it what I've got into it," said Les Olson, App Maker.

The game will be released next week and costs $2.99.
