301819Pompom Games' Poppi [App Store] is a game that couldn't really exist on any other platform but the iPhone without losing quite a bit of the experience.

The goal of Poppi is touching the screen to juggle the various shapes that fall from the top, bouncing them off other shapes and off the sides of the screen before finally colliding with matching shapes and popping off the screen with a fun star explosion particle effect. As the objects bounce they make different sounds, and eventually strange melodies emerge out of the juggling chaos of Poppi.

The simple gameplay is set on a colorful and slowly changing background, and the entire package creates a very soothing experience similar to games like Zen Bound [App Store] on the iPhone and Electroplankton on the Nintendo DS.

The white rings in the video show where the finger taps would be occuring, and also shown in the video are red spiked objects and bombs which are to be avoided. Poppi is a fun game, and because the sound is such a vital part of the feel of the game, we recommend playing with headphones.

    This game is so cool; it has a relaxing feel about it... I've been playing for about 2 hours now. I feel so relaxed.

    What happened to Space Tripper?

    I'm with JimB. This is added to my chill play before going to sleep games. Excellent gameplay and precise control.

    Please add leaderboards.

    Already purchased it and left my review. Excellent app, but the game sorely needs multi-touch support and the sound when you touch the screen really needs to be changed (or customizable). Ideally, it would be in sequence with the other Zen-like audio. The 'ping' is abrasive and disruptive! I want an update to make this an even more relaxing experience!

    Yes I'm being picky, but mostly because it's already such a good app and it is so close to being a GREAT app!

    Leaderboards we're thinking about right now. I can appreciate the ping might not be to everybody's liking. We'll look to smoothing it out for the next build. Thanks for playing!

    I also like all the sounds. The mine level ramps up the difficulty 10X though. Maybe 2 or 3 mine hits should equal a life.

    Yes, besides leaderboards, the game needs a local top 10 score list at least.

    So you touch to make things squirt away from your finger? That's what the video looks like. Sounds like a fun mechanic. (And if so, then the touch sound seems right to me.)

    Very pretty, but much too easy. Who wants to be playing for 10 minutes every time before there's any challenge?
