The toy top that buzzes with sci-fi sounds and glows with limitless, colorful shapes...
Best of iPhone Entertainment in the US and 8 other countries - App Store Rewind 2011
Cosmic Top is a toy, a 3D audiovisual physics simulation of a spinning, wobbling, and sometimes morphing top.
The top seems to float among stars and can take on unlimited colorful shapes and sci-fi sounds which appear to glow and hum from within your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
You control the top with your touch and by simple command buttons. Swipe it to spin it, pinch it to zoom it, or hold it to brake it. If you rotate your device, you can see and hear the top from all sides.
Best of all, when you tap the cosmic button, a new cosmos of tops will be created.
"Cosmic Top is the first sheer toy I’ve downloaded for my iPad, and I love it… This app is highly recommended."

Read the other reviews if you want a general picture. I'm here to tell you that if you are into chiptune or 8bit music you will love this app. The sounds it makes are very reminiscent of the scratch noises you can make with an old sound chip. Play some chip music on your favorite music app and then load this app up. You'll be quite pleased with your newfound ability to accentuate your music! (It works with all other kinds of music of course, but it's innately geared for this sort of thing.)
Unleash your crazy side!
If you're like me and have an innate restlessness and are slightly adhd, I highly recommend this app. I can play with this and just bang the screen and do all sorts of crazy stuff all the while my eyes light up like a kid in a candy store. Really, when I play this before bed, you can see my eyeballs reflected with spinning cosmic colors. So hypnotizing and amazing. I don't even know how someone came up with this idea. Please make more apps like this! It's the best one yet.
Update: it is amazing how long this can occupy your time. The physics & programming is pretty amazing. Thank you. I came across this app & it really is something how functional it can be. This Ido cool. I had one of those tops with a string. This creates automatically programs & you change them by pulling on screen-it is a physics genius . Give it a try-I did with iPhones 5 & still have it on 6s-Colorful & sounds that change it is so cool Thank you
