App description: What do you get when you mix Sir Newton's physics with super-mezmerizing electronic sights and sounds and revolutionary iPhone/iPod Touch controls? You get Super Newtronic, an addictive new iPhone/iPod Touch game that is easy to play but impossible to put down!

The premise is simple: use the metal balls to break all the blocks. To do this simply draw energy lines with your finger and the ball will bounce off of them, or tap the screen for a finger-tip explosion that sends the ball flying. Tap and hold to charge up a larger finger blast that will propel the ball harder.

Don't be fooled though, Super Newtronic is like no other block breaking game ever! Super Newtronic uses a cutting edge physics engine that fully incorporates gravity, friction, bounciness, mass, and force! If you don't hit a block hard enough it won't break. The balls don't bounce endlessly either, they fall down the screen making the game feel like a revolutionary new twist on pinball! There are even special objects like Bumpers, Pachinko Pins, Gravity Changers, Giant Balls, Teleporters... the list goes on and on!

Super Newtronic has multiple play modes and difficulty levels for almost endless replayability. In Arcade Mode, blocks descend from the top of the screen and you must break them before they reach the bottom. This mode has 3 different difficulties and an endless number of levels. Online leaderboards will keep high scores for the best players in the world to see how they stack up to each other.

The Challenge Mode contains 50 unique levels that require puzzle solving and skill to break all the blocks before the timer runs out! The game has 9 different possible endings based on the path you take through the challenge progression. Each time you complete a different ending you unlock the ability to edit a different aspect of the games physics and play any level you have beaten in the Experimental Mode. Extend the time limit, turn off the gravity, increase the bounciness of your energy lines... the possiblities are endless!

Okay, at first look it seems like a normal brick breaker game. Reading the description of the physics engine however, the game does sound much more interesting. Hmmm

I agree, it looks very intresting. A gameplay video would be great to see how it is played.

I'll wait on some impressions first.

Looks very unique. I'm keeping my eye out for a gameplay video.

Looks good, but that website is NOT friendly to FireFox. Works fine in IE, but I already hate it for making me load it in an IE tab.

Looks like there are some decent effects and the physics add a bit of a twist. Not sure if it's enough to make me jump the fence though.

I did too - Firefox 3.5.8.

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

Odd. Same version here, but the videos wouldn't load and the logo was repositioned over the game name at the top. Could be a plugin perhaps, but I rarely see this happen elsewhere.
