View Full Version : Numpty Physics released for Windows Mobile!

07-03-2009, 11:42 PM
Touch Physics has become an instant success on the iPhone. I’ve also purchased it for my phone and spent a lot of time with it.


A Windows Mobile game based on the same ideas has just been released. It requires you to draw objects that, after falling down, trush a ball towards its destination. It’s a free title (as opposed to the iPhone one, which costs $3).

Availability, compatibility

The homepage of the title is HERE (http://www.1800pocketpc.com/2009/07/02/numpty-physics-physics-game-for-windows-mobile.html), with a direct link to the CAB download. Note that, should you want to run it under Windows Mobile 6.5, you’ll need an additional hack available HERE (http://www.1800pocketpc.com/2009/07/03/hack-run-windows-mobile-6-or-wm5-games-on-wm6-5.html).

I’ve tested it on four test devices: HP iPAQ 210 (factory Windows Mobile Classic 6.0), HTC Universal (cooked 6.1), Dell Axim x51v (cooked 6.1) and HTC Wizard (cooked 6.1). The first three are VGA, the last is a QVGA device. I had no problems at all with any of them.

It's WM5+ only (no pre-WM5) and, naturally, it doesn't run on touchscreen-less Windows Mobile Standard phones.

Compared to the iPhone / iPod Touch version

- Free

- Lower resolution (on VGA devices too) - pretty blocky on devices with larger screens (like the 4" iPAQ 210)
- No in-game music (which is just great on the iPhone)


If you don’t have an iPhone / iPod Touch, get it. Otherwise, go for the iDevice version instead (if you can and want to afford it) – it’s better.
