The simple games can sometimes be the best fun. I’m addicted to my iChalky! There is something totally irresistible about trying to make this little stick man fall over as he desperately and hilariously skids around your phone, trying to keep his balance.
An impressive study in physics, iChalky is controlled by invisible springs. Tilt your iPhone to try and unbalance him while he slides around to stay on his feet, or throw him in the air and watch him bounce around. The expressions on his face will make you laugh out loud. It’s totally addictive, a fabulous little thing to show round at a party. Just be careful before letting iChalky loose at work if you don’t want a crowd of colleagues round your desk, laughing insanely!
Advanced options for iChalky include tweaking his physics – increasing the friction of the walls for instance, or making his springs bouncier. You can also customise his face with a photo. And you can make him dance to your favourite music!
So far, I have not become even slightly bored of the basic iChalky stick man, and I sense many rib-tickling hours of play ahead…!
