Newton’s cradle

Newton’s cradle is a little bit of fun. As a child we’ve all played with the cradle. It’s the one that has the four balls hanging and the one on one end taps into the three others and only the third bounces away. It detects the attitude of the device and can be a nice method of procrastination

Audi A4

The audi a4 game is a blatant bit of advertising. It’s a driving game and the controls are very simple. Right pedal for acceleration, left pedal to break. You control the car by tilting the phone either to the right or left.
It’s not that hard to play and it won’t be such a challenge to get the hang of the controls.

Labyrinth LE

Labyrinth LE is that platform you played with as a child. It’s a plank of wood with holes and walls. As you tilt the plank of wood (iphone or ipod touch) so the ball rolls with gravity. The tilt sensors work well on this game and it’s another way of making those moments of inactivity less boring.

Pyramid Lite
Pyramid lite is a card game where the aim is to add two cards together to get to a total of 13.

Gottago

It’s the same as gottago but by the CFF/SBB.
