The premise of the game is pretty much self explainatory. You have a ball, and a stick, and you balance the ball on top of the stick. The goal is to try to keep it there for as long as possible, using the accelerometer in your Smartphone or Tablet to carefully tilt the stick. When the ball falls off the stick, the game is over. See? Simple.

But not as simple as you think. You never know what could happen next.

The Game Ends when the ball hits the ground

The game includes opt-in advertising as it's monetization strategy. Players get an extra boost in Gold Orbs in exchange for watching ads if they so choose. The player is never forced to watch an ad.
