Hey I don't know if any of you have even heard of this game, but you should try it out.

There is a lite version to, and after playing the first few levels, it seems pretty good.

Well jigger me ligger, it's pretty decent!

I figured, "Yip-ti-do, move the guy's head at the bottom of the screen to have all of the apples hit it...been there done that". I, of course, was pretty off. You have no control over the head...heck, the head would rather NOT be hit by apples if Newton has any say. You instead control the gravity by tilting your device around so the apples do in fact, hit him in the head. Even just hat wouldn't be that interesting but the game keeps things fun by throwing in new challenges and introducing new elements to keep you on your toes. Take bombs in this game for an example. You can score huge points for blowing up a bomb in such a way as to "make applesauce" of as many apples as possible BUT, as counter intuitive as it may seem, Newton does not want a bomb blowing up in his face or hitting him in the head since doing so would not only mess with your level progression, it causes him to panic and run back and forth across the screen!
