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.
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.
