771081_4jpgIf you're over ball-rolling Labyrinth-type games, then you may want to skip this story. But even if you think you are over them, you should still check out the gameplay video for Fayju Ball [$0.99].

Like many other games in the App Store, Fayju Ball has you tilting your phone to try to get the ball(s) into the proper spots. This game, however, stands out in its use of puzzle elements as well as the 3D physics involved. The game contains 50 levels.

It starts innocently enough with simply moving a ball into the proper hole. Later levels, though, require you to change the color of your ball by hitting the proper colored block and then settling into the correct hole. But what really makes things interesting is when you realize that you can flip your iPhone over in order to get the balls out of the holes again or that you have to turn your iPhone on its side to properly line them up with holes on the side of the box.

You should really watch the video to understand the physics involved:

    Now that's looks pretty decent. It really looks like your looking into a box when playing this, after viewing the vid.

    PS: I like how the scene cuts away to a different map every time the guy fails.

    I agree about the frustration

    i've played some of the earlier similar style games like this, and being timed is stressful

    looks good, but i will pass

    Cool that Touch Arcade put the video up. I saw this game on the Unity3D boards I frequent and the first thing that struck me was how poorly still pictures advertise this game. Once I saw the video I was impressed.

    Sure, it's not everyone's type of game, but this is certainly unique and very cool within its genre. It's got that natural 4th dimension of play that most games can't quite get ahold of with the accelerometers.

    Wow, the physics in this game look really impressive. Might have to give this one a shot.

    I like the game but I think the texture detail could be a whole lot better. It just seems mid 90s in the texture quality.

    My 2c
    - Improve texture detail
    - calibration setting
    - Timer/Countdown
    - Replay Level/Continue after completion. I hate having to goto the main menu to go to the next level or retry.

    ball, 3D, tilting...
    that's what I was looking for to post this :)
    Take a look at Ivory Tower (4igames.com)
