Just place the document you want to scan on a contrasting surface. The app will be able to detect the border of the document and crop it down for you when you take a photo. You can manually adjust the crop if necessary. You’re then able to change the color of your scan and its size before saving it to the in-app library. Scans can be organized within folders, shared via email, and synced with your favorite cloud service. The app also includes the ability to scan multiple pages and set a passcode lock.

The idea is to try to bounce the balls off of walls to reach your targets while using as few as possible. Your targets are robots, policeman, and evil clowns, and they all feature some pretty hilarious rag doll physics. You’re also able to set off chain reactions by aiming at heavy objects, exploding crates, and other wacky items.
