Really great art, but it self-describes as a "physics puzzler". That term means nothing anymore, it seems, other than possibly "does not radically fly in the face of certain basic physical laws".

I suppose Grow Tower isn't "physics based", but it does have great art (don't know if it was FPPed, I'm moderately sure the other grow games where)

"Physics puzzler" means that you control the guy, but you only indirectly control movement because he's not always at the bottom of the bubble, so anemic jumps are more common than decent jumps.

Just ignore the walls that just disappear & sometimes reappear, & wheels that rotate without, uh, being connected to an axle.

It's fiddly enough that I wonder if this would be a better fit for the Wii.

I basically like this, schyler, but after 20 levels, let me just say that AFAIC, forced carpal tunnel is not a substitute for predictable laws of physics. Just too jumpy if you ask me.

I finished all 50 levels. I wouldn't recommend it.
