MathFall: a fun iPhone game...with math in it
MathFall is a genre defining, or genre defying, iPhone game that features elements of both puzzle and arcade gameplay. It is also a great educational tool that hones your math real time.

Who said doing math isn't exciting? Probably many have, but now you can prove them wrong with this game! Get the number on the ball close to zero by bouncing it on triangles and through numbers.
Don't let the ball touch the bottom of the screen! Keep an eye out for helpful power-ups...and watch out for power-downs. Will you be able to achieve the supreme rank of Math Genius?


Physics based pulse pounding gameplay.
20 premade levels of increasing difficulty.
Random level generator for infinite gameplay.
Intuitive controls.
Four Math operations.
Dynamic level environments.
Role: programmer

I woul have liked to see the video, but the obscenity that is Quicktime is keeping me from doing so.

Why not publish the video on YouTube and embed it on the site? Using YT can have other advantages, too, like people stumbling over the video, buying the game.

I also think, that the font used on the "complete"-screenshot is a) hard to read and b) sort of "unfun".

To be honest, that video is not very convincing. The player (probably you?) sounds a bit frustrated and looses a lot in this three minutes and the red figure seems to be fixed in the left area. There is no real "play" going on.

Another minus is that because of the protective case, the iPhone doesn't look like an iPhone. That confused me.

KMB: I was holding the device at a very awkward angle, trying to record the video (with another iPhone actually, on a stand made from books piled atop eacho other and Lego pieces to hold it at an agle).
I don't have a nice camera that can record video with sound :(
I know there are some solutions to control the iPhone simulator with a device for accelerometer use, but I read that it's recommeded you actually show yourself playing in the video.
Based on feedback from various sources, I plan a major update to the graphics and hopefully will be able to take a better video in the future.
