Physics and the universe have long fascinated mankind. If you enjoy physics and the laws of momentum, then get ready to test your hold on these with Zappi Free, an iOS app in the form of a sci-fi game. Unlike other sources of learning, this app makes the entire process fun and exciting by wrapping it around a thrilling game.
In Zappi Free, you are given a set of puzzles to solve, all related to physics and momentum. As per the legend of the game, some ruthless aliens stole a certain toy for an innocent little boy Louis. This toy, Zappy, wishes to return to its rightful owner and hence decides to scheme out an escape through a series of confusing and treacherous environments. The addition of this simple, yet creative storyline adds a new layer of thrill to the entire game.
The gameplay and controls can be mastered by just anyone in no time. The one common move for you is to tap the screen.

With the right amount of momentum, you can piggyback onto the next magnet along your path. At the end of each level or area, there is a level pipe. You will get sucked in here and transported to the successive level.
As a reward, there are stars scattered across each level. You have to ensure that Zappi picks up all of these on his way. The game consists of many exciting unique levels in its first season.
