Orbital

Orbital is a puzzle game for the iPhone.
It's one of those games that you can play a game or two whenever you have a few spare minutes and just see if you can break your record. It's very easy to pick up and is pretty addictive.

Orbital's gameplay is simple: you shoot orbs using a cannon. The orb flies through the sky and once it stops it expands as much as it can till it touches either a wall or another orb on the board. Each orb contains the number ‘3’, which decreases by one every time it is hit. After 3 hits they explode and you earn a point.

The one thing you aren't allowed to do is have an orb touch the "death line" at the bottom of the screen. If an orb you shoots crosses that line you're dead and the game is over. (If that sounds complicated it's totally not, just look at the game for 5 seconds and you get the hang of it)

The look and feel of Orbital is great, it really looks cool and the robotic sounds are great.
It also has a cool multiplayer mode where two players can play on the same iphone (both people shoot orbs at the same board) but I usually find myself playing it for a couple minutes at a time when I have some time to burn.
