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.
