Thanks for adding the vid! Looks interesting but still no idea how it works, controls and all that.

Seems very much like nitrome's online flash game "Knuckleheads".

Same here. I really like the look but it would be nice to know how the controls work.

Hmm. I'll guess that you touch the screen to change which ball is sticky. Don't see how any other control scheme would work.

the green ball is sticky and the purple one bounces off everything, tapping the screen causes their positions to switch. Using these properties, you need to figure out how to navigate the obstacles in the levels

This is correct.

I picked this up and it is okay. Nice music and art work with simple one touch controls


I went through about twenty levels but I started to get bored. There are no scores, time limit or penalty for failure. So if you want a relaxing game that you can take your time with, this may be for.

Dev here

Hey guys, I'm one of the developers for Tipoli. Sorry about the shoddy screens - Apple apparently ate the .pngs we gave it. Only learned from our publisher that we needed .jpgs when we downloaded it to our devices and saw the 'auto' shots it had taken. There are better screens up now.

The controls mentioned above are accurate - just tap to swap which one is sticky and which one is bouncy. There are more obstacles and harder physics in the later levels and a set of challenge levels for the more core gamers if you find the 'little loves' in each level (smaller, hidden hearts). Of course, core gamers have to get over the art style and tutorial block to get there <_<.
