Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Finger Physics: Thumb Wars is a brain-challenging puzzle game. The app will want you to input your location, but only so it can tally your scores along with the others from your state and/or country. There are weekly and daily announcements of winners in the global "Thumb Wars."
Is it any good?
The concept of pooling scores from all the different countries and states where people are playing the app, and then awarding titles to each week's winning places adds a nice bit of national and local pride to a puzzle game like FINGER PHYSICS: THUMB WARS. The war imagery is not overdone (it's mostly just in the logo) and this generally seems like Olympics-style friendly global competition. As for the puzzles themselves, they're just as great as the ones in the original Finger Physics: Finger Fun app. You'll have to stack shapes atop one another and prevent them from falling; you'll have to break "glass" shapes in just the right places to make a circle roll to its target. There's a lot of trial and error involved, but it's an incredibly entertaining process.
