- Lots of gameplay modes.
- Colorful visuals.
- Drag controls can be less than accurate.
Moonz is the kind of app you'll want to grab just because it shows off the iPhone so well. The physics feel right and the controls are so simple that even the kids in the family can enjoy it without hassle.

One of the great things about the iPhone is being able to play games that border the territory between toys and games. Some may argue that toys are ultimately a waste of time, but if you could pair the time wasting with a productively fun game then you'd probably have something like Moonz by ADXSoft.
Moonz is a orbit physics simulator with a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun. Each level presents several gravity defying obstacles to which the player must fling objects in to. This is done by a simple drag on the screen that translates in to direction and velocity for your object which must orbit without crashing to score.
For such a simple game the graphics are fun and at times cheeky, but it's all paired with decent special effects for a visually rich arcade offering. What makes this game so fun is the time that has been taken in to developing multiple gameplay modes, some that have little to no bearing on the physics simulator that defines the app.
There's basic time-trials and sudden death modes to arcade clones of Defender to keep you busy and even a sandbox mode to create your own whacky environments. Moonz falls in to the kind of category of game where you curse the fact that you didn't have time to sit down and play it for a bit longer. Great fun for everyone.
