FDG Entertainment’s Physics Gamebox landed in the App Store today, missing the company’s oh-so-vague launch window of June by a measly day. Don’t worry guys, we won’t fault you for it, we’re just glad we can finally start ridding the world of Roly-Polys.
Physics Gamebox includes two popular former Flash-based physics games: Roly-Poly Cannon and Ragdoll Cannon. The two games were originally created by Russian developer “Johnny-K,” and have been played by millions of Flash-based game fans from all over the world. Ragdoll Cannon was actually the first of its kind, although many other copycat versions made it into the App Store well before Physics Gamebox. But now that it is available for your iPhone and iPod touch, everything should be right in the world.
Roly-Poly Cannon is a physics destruction game that requires you to tap the screen to fire bombs from a huge cannon. Carefully target and shoot the evil Roly-Polys to eliminate them, but don ́t hit the peaceful folk, otherwise it’s game over. This one features 100 levels.
Ragdoll Cannon is the one that started it all. Shoot ragdolls out of the cannon in order to hit the target. The game becomes progressively more difficult as you move on, requiring more finesse and accurate shooting to complete each of the 200 included levels.
Physics Gamebox also includes OpenFeint integration, and iOS 4 multitasking support. It’s currently available for the introductory price of $.99, but will eventually be raised to $2.99, so get it on the cheap early adopters! A separate HD version is in the works and shouldn’t be too far out. We will keep you posted.
