This looks quite interesting, especially for physics fans, why no interest I wonder?

I just picked it up. It's simple and elegant and very well put together... I suspect it'll start gaining momentum very soon. Oh... and the level editor is perfect.

I was interested... then I played the flash version It's pretty cool, but to me this kinda gameplay just feels like something I'd be playing for free online.

I picked this up last night after seeing Arn's writeup, its another decent physics puzzle game. Worthwhile but it would be nice if a few more levels were added.

Also recommend Pocketball, Draw n Go, and Windforce to those who like this.

You mean like Bejeweled and Peggle?

I'll be picking this one up shortly. I'm a sucker for puzzle games with level editors.
