King Oddball (TMA Review), brought to you by 10tons, is a rather strange yet addictive physics puzzler. In it, you take on the role of a miffed king and attempt to flatten targets with huge boulders that you launch with your tongue.

Your aim, then, is to crush as many targets as you possibly can with each and every boulder that you let loose in order to wipe out the human civilisation. You do this across 120 levels, which are packed with collapsing structures and plenty of opportunities to unlock Game Center-powered achievements. King Oddball is now free (was $2.99) and is a universal app for the iPhone and iPad.
