Are you looking for a new game to fill your daily commute? Pebble Universe might just fit the bill. The physics-based puzzle game has made its way over to Android from iOS, and offers 25 levels of gameplay for free.

The storyline behind the game is quite straight forward: you're responsible for a group of Pebbles (naturally), who are being attacked by soot-lump creatures wanting to eat delicious Pebble meat.

Now, in order to protect themselves against the evil creatures above, the Pebbles take advantage of the fact that their hats explode when they bump into each other. Still with me? Good.

This is where you come in. Timing each Pebble to the best of your ability, you must cause them to smash into each other at such a time that their hats explode and take down the creatures circling above. It sounds simple, and in the early levels it is, but it gets a little more difficult as the game progresses.

If you want to try your luck, the game is available from the Play Store for free. You will be able to play through the first world without paying a dime, with further worlds available through in-app purchases.

    Seriously, how difficulte is it to replace the iphone layer by a generique android phone in the trailer for the Android Play store ? Are they aware that they ll never be feature by Google just cause of this ?

    So, why does a game need:

    AUTOMATICALLY START AT BOOTAllows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the tablet and allow the app to slow down the overall tablet by always running. Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

    No thanks.

      Usually when an app requests "start at bootup" permission, it means that they need it because of push notifications. When you restart your phone they need to be able to kick off the background service that handles the push messages. The only reason i know this is because thats exactly what i'm doing to my app this week.

        Maybe I'm being daft, but why does a game need push notifications? Alan, you can use autostarts or something similar to stop games from starting at boot if that's all that keeps you from downloading it.

        • Pedro Belo

          There's no legitimate reason really for push notifications, you can either use a program like Avast! that blocks the internet access of specific apps, of if like me you use a Miui rom, just stop the program from starting at boot.

    Tried it. Nothing special. Seems like a simple enough game but yet after round 1, the mechanic of releasing your pebbles didnt seem to work well. Nothing unique about this to make me want to keep playing, a little frustrating because of lack of instruction...uninstalled.
