3 out of 5
$1.99 (Free Lite Version Available)
Neon-rendered physics game that challenges you to draw bridges, cogs, and slingshots to get your little green ball to roll over several stars spread our across each level.
Drawing specific objects can be challenging on older generation Android devices with smaller screens. May take several tries to get the game to understand what you’re trying to draw.
Draw a wheel, add some teeth to its edges to set is spinning, then join it with a second wheel to create a slingshot for propelling your ball far across the level. Neato!

Little green ball, what’s up? You need to get to the other side of this puzzle, touching all the stars along the way? Sure I can help, stand aside little one.
That’s the premise for this neon-bright physics game, which challenges you to draw bridges, cogs, and (by combining cogs) slingshots to get your little green friend to roll over several stars spread our across each level.
At its most basic, you can simply draw a line between two platforms, them roll your ball across the bridge. Touch a star, and that’s one down.
In more complex levels, you’ll need to draw circles either in open space (creating a wheel) or attached to a platform (creating a rotating cog) to get your ball moving in the right direction. Set up your cogs just right and a pair will create a virtual slingshot, propelling your ball across the level in crazy-quick fashion.
Best of all, there’s no one right way to solve each puzzle. Take your time, experiment with your drawings, and interesting things happen. Unfortunately, drawing specific objects can be challenging on older generation Android devices with smaller screens. It may take several tries to get the game to understand what you’re trying to draw.
When purchasing the full version, be sure to grab the Pack for Space Physics. This is a content pack that you can install right to your SD card to lessen the impact on all Android phone’s anemic internal storage.
