    A highly addictive game available in the market, developed by a 14yo.

    It dethroned Angry Birds in the iPhone market...unfortunately not as popular with Android. Show your support :)

    well it "Dethroned" Angry Birds LITE... And Angry Birds FULL is not that expencive and is such a popular game that the LITE version on iPhone probably isn't that popular since people with full don't need the Lite ;-)
    And on Android where the full Angry Birds game is free... so...!
    That said it is still cool that a 14yo codes a game for phones ;-)

    I can't find it in the market. I see a game called "bubble ball" but its not the same, and actually it changes its name to "bubble soccer" after installation...but maybe its not available for my old Eris.

    yep, its a 2.2 only app:( oh well

    It shouldn't be surprising at all that it took the first place. Before iPhone came out, there were a lot of high quality flash games that became highly popular. Some of them even got converted into commercial games.

    I tried this out. Really fun. A good combination of an intellectual challenge regarding how the physics will work, and the satisfaction of seeing it work on the screen.

    After I got through the 21 levels, I went back and tried challenges for myself like how few pieces could I use complete each level, or tried to get the trajectory of the ball to be as smooth as possible straight to the target with no bounces, etc.

    I'm surprised there isn't more discussion of it here-- in the iPhone world it seems to be all the rage.

    Originally, the kid promised updates on a monthly basis. Sounds as though he's concentrating on the iPhone market which sucks. Really enjoyed this game
