I managed to catch Finger Physics at a time when it was being offered as a free download.  While the game is cute and possibly addictive, this is not a game I would find myself paying money for.

You are given an egg and a basket.  The objective of the game is to get the egg into the basket.  However, various glass obstacles appear in the way and you have to break them with your finger in the correct combination in order to get the egg in the basket. Later levels involve using the blocks to build stable buildings or to balance shapes., and of course, all of these things need to be completed within a specific time limit.

This is a good game for those with an instinct for visual puzzles.  Sometimes it takes a few tries to guess how quickly an item will fall (the movement of the game represents actual physics quite nicely).  There are a set of options to control the background music and sounds (like glass breaking).

Truthfully, there isn’t that much to the game.  Either you like this sort of thing or you don’t.  I fall somewhere in the middle.  It’s cute for five minutes then starts to get tedious.  You may think differently.

Overall, it’s a cute game with cute graphics and a good grasp of the laws of physics.  No doubt a lot of math went into this app.  It might even be a good kiddie app.  I’ll leave it to you to decide if its worth the $.99.

Quick Take

Value:Medium.

Would I Buy Again:Only for free.

Learning Curve:Low to medium.

Who Is It For:Those who can visualize mathematics.

What I Like:Good graphics and motion.

What I Don't Like:Kind of dull (but maybe that's just me).

Final Statement:A decent if not overwhelming game.

Read the Developer's Notes:
When was the last time you had an honest conversation with your fingers? Do you really know how much fun they are having on a daily basis? You use them to play games on your iPhone and iPod touch you say, are you sure they aren’t tired of the same screen mashing, pointing and line drawing? No, you aren’t sure, you thoughtless wielder of tiny appendages.Luckily for you (lucky because you never know when your fingers are going to go in to all out revolt mode– we don’t even want to talk about what that looks like), we have asked your fingers what they want. Here’s what they told us:Pinky:“I just want to be involved, I don’t care what it is, I just want to have some fun. I’m sick of all the other fingers laughing at me, calling me stubby and useless. I AM FED UP!”Ring Finger:“Seriously, stop playing with the ring. It’s bad enough that I’m constantly choking, but taking it on and off is torture. You take it off, I think I’m free, and then you put it right back on again. I hate you.”Middle Finger:“I’m totally satisfied with my role as the longest, most meaningful, finger.”Index Finger:“Seriously? More lines? Don’t you notice the huge calluses on my face? Give me some mental stimulation, some physics or something; if I have to draw another line I’m pretending I have leprosy.”Thumb:“I’ve accepted my role as the stabilizing force on this hand. I wasn’t thrilled with it, but at least I’m not ‘Pinky’”Shocked? Yea, us too. We can’t help ‘Pinky’ (no one can) or ‘Ring Finger’ but we can help ‘Index Finger’. Finger Physics is everything ‘Index Finger’ wants. With 9 stages, 5 modes and an almost unlimited amount of achievements Finger Physics provides you with one chance to give back to the digit you have so thoughtlessly neglected over the years.After playing Finger Physics, Index Fingers everywhere were heard giggling, whooping it up, and taunting the lowly Pinky from a safe distance.
