Click Read More to check out all details plus a gallery of screen shots and game play trailer!
What could be more fun than adorable gerbil destruction? Were you ever that kid who enjoyed building sand castles for the sole purpose of destroying them? I know I was, and let’s be honest here for a moment. Who really ever grows out of the pure joy only found when destroying stuff! Gerbil Physics will take your love of destruction to the next level because now you can demolish anytime you want on your Windows Phone! Add in fact that you will also have an array of tools to choose from depending on what kind of havoc you want to wreak and you have one solid game on your hands (yes that’s a pun and it’s AWESOME). While everything I’ve told you about this game so far is undeniably AMAZING, I saved the best part for last! The focus of all your destruction fun time will be to taking down entire buildings….. formed from gerbils! That’s right,tons of buildings made of adorable gerbils just waiting to be blown up, disintegrated, or bombed whenever and wherever you go! Why would these gerbils do this to themselves you might ask? The truth is, all is not well in the Kingdom of Gerbils. The King of Toads has imprisoned the gerbils in indestructible blocks for his evil purposes. Unsurprisingly, it falls to you to demolish the gerbil buildings and thwart the Toad King!
You will need to use your powers of destruction for good! The need for a carefully planned out destruction strategy will fall to you if you want to help those poor gerbils! Different destruction tools have different effects and if you’re not careful you might choose the wrong one! Complete levels cleverly or quickly to earn the elusive Wipeout badges and use your guile and intuition to earn Xbox LIVE Achievements. Multiple Leaderboards are available to show off your skills to your friends so you can bask in the glory of your explosive successes! Gerbil Physics controls and interface are simple and intuitive. They are ideally suited for gaming on the Windows Phone which makes it super easy for you to download, start, and enjoy within minutes!
The launch of Gerbil Physics on Windows phone is just a few weeks away but weeks can feel like a lifetime when waiting for something AWESOME. I will personally be making the wait a little less hard by playing the original Gerbil Physics that launched in 2009 on Xbox 360 Indie games! Just like any good sequel, Gerbil Physics on Windows Phone was built from the same fabric but has more layers added to your experience! The title was wholly rewritten to suit the mobile platform, with a new state-of-the-art physics engine, glorious new art, new animations, three times the number of levels as the original Xbox release, and an awesome new theme tune! I’ve posted a gallery of screen shots, original art, and the official trailer below but before you get completely invested and excited about this rad title, I offer a word of advice. Work on your sharing abilities because this game is 100% family friendly! The tried and true easy excuses like, sorry for grownups only or dang, wish I could let you but you’re just not quite old enough yet aren’t gonna cut it. Just learn to let go or get another Windows Phone because who wants to makes kids cry…. or stop playing their new fun game?
