App description: Gerry the gerbil has his eye on some shiny balls!

In particular, Gerry loves shiny GOLD balls.

In order for Gerry to get his hands on some shiny gold balls, he must spin and roll across 50 levels contained within 5 rooms of Gerry's house!

Gerry's house is not just any house though! No, Gerry's house is very dangerous. It contains many traps and hazards that Gerry might bump into, but worst of all - Gerry might fall off the edge of a level, and SMASH his own ball into a million tiny pieces!

So what are you waiting for - hurry and help Gerry collect his shiny balls!

Game features:

* Amazing 3D graphics - push your iPhone and iPad to the max and see what it can do!
* 60fps - silky smooth gameplay!
* Full 3D ball physics - playing with a gerbil has never been so much fun!
* 50 levels - from the weird and wonderful to the twisted and tormenting!
* 5 stages - starting from the beautiful green garden and ending with the spooky...???
* 5 a-maze-ing levels - will you reach the end??
* 3 unique endings - play well and watch all three wonderful endings!
* 51 online high scores tables - are you the best in the world?
* 5 player profiles - all the family can play!

What's New In Version 1.03

3 new levels added, exclusive to iPad! See the iPad Extras button in the main menu. Note that these levels are not part of the main game, and as such any balls won or lost in them are not added to the overall scores.

New sound effects added.

Ball made bouncier.

Level tilting made smoother.

Game timing code improved, frame rate made smoother.

Bird Tables level redesigned.

Mental floss level fixed - was near-impossible to complete due to the coil at the end being a solid object instead of a 'flossy' one.

Levels tweaked so the ball will no longer become hidden at certain points with the overhead view. Tweaks include Mortal Coil and Four Stories being made twice as big.

Overhead cam view is no longer reset to behind cam view after every level reset.

Respawning improved - ball now always respawns in correct position and with correct rotation.

Menu tweaks - info page added, level preview and level complete pages spruced up.

Bug fixes - balls lost counter would go up by several dozen if the maze levels were completed at the 2nd, 3rd etc attempt rather than the 1st. Ball didn't change colour to match the colour of the shiny ball when the shiny ball was won. Online scores/times tables would occasionally show blank data.

I would be happy to write a review for you, but when I tried a code it said it had expired.

Is this the same gerbil that just came out for iPhone. I did not know about this version, and it appears to have been released much ealier.

iPhone version crashes on iPad BTW. Touch icon, app appears, the crashes immediately.

Wow, didn't realize this was an iPad game. Now I have to figure out whether I want the iPad one or the iPod one?
Anyone try it and can comment on the controls? Is it clumsy on the iPad?
