This title is one of the many that utilize Erin Catto’s Box 2D physics engine, that is an open source project available here for FREE: http://www.box2d.org. The player must pilot our little friend through a series of levels to collect as many stars as possible and reach the exit. This is accomplished simply by nudging him in a direction with a tap of the finger and maneuvering him to avoid various obstacles. The game is really good, but what really puts it over the top is that it ships with a level editor! That’s right, you too can create your own boring green corridor and not share it with your friends (although an online component is in the works, I believe). Seriously, though, it’s a good game, and I consider the inclusion of an editor to be a positive portent for things to come (not only for this dev, but the app store, in general).
