VERDICT

iQuarters lets you get your trick-shot mojo on with twelve different areas to flick and ricochet your spare change - just don't spill your drink on the iPhone!

It's a common pub past-time, but flicking quarters has finally found a home on your iPhone, keeping your fingers, change and tables safe from damage. iQuarters by Incredible Technologies is a simple physics simulator that will suit anyone who likes to play casually or competitively.

Much like Paper Toss, iQuarters uses a simple flick system to determine the power and direction of your shot. Tapping the angle button in the corner allows you to fine tune the average distance of each shot, but you'll still need a good eye and a steady hand to make those trick shots. Each of the twelve levels provides players with plenty of opportunities to rebound their coins, including spinning tables, springboard mobile phones and even a wobbly Hula dancer. You only have 40 coins in total to sink three shots per table, so make them count!

The physical objects on the table are all rendered in realistic 3D with a simple, but clever panoramic background shot giving the illusion of a full 3D world. Up to four players can compete in a single match and replays of the last shot can be replayed to show off to friends, however it'd have been even better if you could save the replays for later.

iQuarters could easily be a new source of boasting for competitive friends, but even as a casual time-waster it's a tonne of fun thanks to the relaxed physics that allow you to attempt wild shots.
