Bubble Ball Displaces Angry Birds as Top Free iOS Game

By Jason Fitzpatrick on January 21st, 2011

Wildly popular physics-based game Angry Birds, from the development house Rovio, has finally been knocked off the number one slot in the App Store. Knocked off, that is, by a 14 year old boy with his own compelling physics-based game.

Robert Nay, a 14 year old from Utah, designed his game Bubble Ball around a simple premise. You have to navigate the ball through a variety of obstacles using tools like ramps, levers, and other objects to act upon the ball and get it over, under, and around obstacles. Check out the video below to see it in action:
