Fairly pointless

OK. what's the point? You get a black screen, loads of acrobots that you can change the size, colour, speed etc, & then you can fling them about the screen. There's no skill or imagination required, & after a couple of minutes it's BORING. Now I can doodle pointlessly with the best of them, but you need to see some sort of result to the doodle - I strongly recommend LINE ART, which if you doodle you'll go back to time & time again. This however is unimaginative & tedious, & you'll delete it pretty quick. In fact, don't bother in the first place.


Just delightful

A wonderfully whimsical app, ideally suited to the iPhone's touch- and motion-sensitive controls. I was going to say it serves no purpose at all, but actually I found myself fiddling with the Acrobots after a stressful morning at work, and was soon soothed into a state of calm. Cheaper than therapy, and healthier than a slug of gin at lunch - bravo!


cant stop playing

I studied chemisry at caltech, specialising in molecular simulations. i would have to say that this is an amazingly fun way to learn about statistical mechanics, liquids, gases, phase transitions, crystal formation etc etc. i cannot put this down
