cat physics iphone

Cat Physics: The title made me think there was some sort of cat throwing involved, but my perception was incorrect. Even better, there is more thought involved than throwing a furry feline fastball across your iPhone. With Cat Physics, your goal is to have a cat throw a ball to another cat. Not that simple, as the puzzle aspect of this game jumps in. Reach the other cat by taking timing and aim into consideration to avoid obstacles in order to have a successful catch on the other end. Take a stab at the 50 levels for only .99 cents.
