Piloteer Is A Beautiful Physics-Based Jetpack Sim With Punishing Difficulty

Sure, jetpacks seem like a good idea at first, then you realize how hard it would be to not die while using one. Piloteer gives form to that fear with a mercilessly challenging physics simulator. You have a jetpack in this game, but it doesn't have any fancy gyroscopic stabilizers or wussy safety measures. You fly, you fail (fabulously), you fly again.

In the main career mode of Piloteer, you are given 60 different missions across three lovely art deco levels. The missions can be anything from land in this spot, to stay in the air for 5 seconds, to fly through these rings.

[New Game] Principia From Bithack (Of Apparatus Fame) Is A Physics Puzzler With Everything From Simple Machines To Advanced Electronics

Physics puzzlers aren't just about flinging birds across the screen – sometimes you need to build something. In fact, sometimes you need to build something really complicated and awesome. That's the trail blazed by Apparatus, and Principia is following its path. This game invites you to design bridges, towers, cars, rocket ships and more using over 150 different objects.

The trailer has some amazing stuff in it, but it also makes me feel slightly intimidated. Still, I kind of want to let this game defeat me – it looks fun. In addition to the puzzles there is an adventure mode where you can smash stuff after the puzzles stump you.

[New Game] Wake The Cat Is A Physics Puzzler Built From The Ground Up For The Internet To Love

If there is one thing the internet has collectively agreed is great, it's cats. Not real cats necessarily, but cats doing funny or adorable things – cats in the abstract. Wake the Cat from Halfpixel Games and Chillingo is a physics puzzler where you have to bounce a ball of yarn over to a sleeping kitten, which should just about do it for the internet.

Wake the Cat comes with 90 levels of cluttered floors and sleeping cats. Just roll the yarn in the right direction to bounce it off boxes and slippers until it reaches the cat, and adorableness ensues.

[New Game] Those Raving Rabbids Make Their Android Gaming Debut In The Physics-Based Title 'Rabbids Big Bang'

When the Rabbids first appeared in Rayman Raving Rabbids for the Wii back in 2006, they were hilarious and even somewhat charming. There wasn't any depth to them, but there wasn't any depth to the game itself, so it was a perfect fit. Those obnoxious bunnies went on to shed their affiliation with Rayman and have since appeared in more games than their limbless friend. Now they're making their mobile debut with Rabbids Big Bang.

Rabbids Big Band - ugh, Big Gang, no, Big Bang is a physics-based game where you manipulate the now space-faring Rabbids with your finger tips, keeping them from launching off into the emptiness of space as they're drawn to planets Super Mario Galaxy-style.

[New Game] The Secret Of Space Octopuses Combines 2D Platforming, Physics Puzzles, And Exploration

Platform games seem to have hit their stride on Android. With typical mascot-style fare like Sonic, Rayman, and Cordy, not to mention unconventional games like Bravoman, Gentlemen, and a handful of OrangePixel titles, platformer fans are spoiled for choice. Add one more game to the list, The Secret of Space Octopuses, a tongue-in-cheek game that takes inspiration from Metroid and adds in a few creative touches.

The gist is that you're an adorable alien abductee who's able to build his own helper robot in a cave, with a box of scraps. You then clomp through a collection of 2.5D stages trying to escape, though the focus is more on exploration than combat.
