Any apps like Switchball?

I remember playing and loving this game called Switchball on the Xbox 360 a while back. I believe it was a port of the PC game, and it was recently released on the PS3 as well (recently as in, I don't know when, but sooner than the 360 version ).

It is a physics-based ball-rolling game, where you used the ball to hit various switches to start up gadgets, and you also rolled the ball over obstacles, into tunnels, etc. etc. It was really really fun.

Are there any apps like that on the iPhone? I've been looking but can't find any.

Nothing I've seen like Switchball, no, though I'd love to see something like it.

Marble Blast is kinda' like it. It's more about speed than puzzle solving, though.

Marble Blast... didn't actually know that was on the iPhone. I'll definitely have to check that one out for the time being

Oh that's awesome. Thank you, Midian, for bringing that here. I don't think I would have ever noticed otherwise. That one is looking really good. I'll definitely keep an eye on it

Aerox - that's Switchball for iPhones

Still looking for a Ballance aka Switchball Clone?
It is out now:



The type of the ball can't be changed and the camera control is a bit difficult, but the game experience is very close to Switchball or Ballance.

Haha, thank you for bumping the thread with this suggestion. I kind of forgot about the thread.

But I have actually already downloaded the game. Bought it as soon as I saw it a night ago. Thank you for the suggestion, though

Are you liking it?
