Much of whatâ€™s here can be attributed to Angry Birds, and whatâ€™s new doesnâ€™t satisfy as much as that extremely popular App Store title.

App DescriptionAppolicious.com just listed Fun With Death as one of â€śfive iPhone physics puzzlers to topple Angry Birds from its perchâ€ť stating â€śIn some ways, Fun With Death is a better game than Angry Birds.â€ť Download the game and find out why!
Step into the sandals of Death â€“ The Grim Reaper himself- an employee of Karma, Inc., Purgatoryâ€™s largest and most efficient soul processing facility. A freak accident disrupts production. Now the good souls on the up escalators to the Almighty teeter perilously on the precipice to the Underworld. Fun with Death is an easy-to-learn puzzle game that puts an entirely new spin on the catapult genre. It combines outstanding graphics, level customization and physics-based Rube-Goldberg like mayhem in 60 unique levels. Ready to have FUN WITH DEATH?
â€śIn some ways, Fun With Death is a better game than Angry Birdsâ€¦a great outgrowth of the Angry Birds formula, adding complexity while maintaining the same fun that the gameâ€™s more popular counterpart is capable of producing.â€ť
â€śFun With Death adds many new and fun elements to the launching physics puzzle genre. This game truly embodies the puzzle aspect of a physics puzzler as each level has a particular set up for a certain solution.â€ť â€“ Trevor Sheridan, App Advice (4/5, SHOULD BUY)
â€śHowever, two recent entries in the genre are much, much better. In fact, they are worthy to stand in the company of the original phenomenon (Angry Birds). One of them is Trucks and Skulls HD, and the other is Fun with Death HD. Anybody who likes catapult games like Angry Birds will love this game. It adds enough new elements to keep the experience interesting, and the developers took their time to produce a high-quality game. A quality title, and a worthy addition to an iPad game library. â€ś - Guy Dayden, Mobile Tech Review (4/5)
â€śFun With Death is an interesting variation on the puzzle platformer and if you're a fan of games like Angry Birds you'll slip in to this one easily.â€ť Andrew Nesvadba, App Spy
SAVING (AND DESTROYING) SOULS
The bad souls (red guys) are a motley group of former Wall Street bankers, mob kingpins, lawyers and politicians and itâ€™s your job to destroy all of them in a given level. Earn points and more halos by keeping the good souls (blue guys) intact. Those red guys definitely have it coming, now go out there and do your job!
THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY
Saving souls ainâ€™t easy, but youâ€™re not alone. Youâ€™ll have three Imps â€“ Heavy, Shield and Sticky â€“ at your disposal. These critters are the ammo you throw in each map, and each one has a unique function. Heavy is good at breaking stuff, Shield forms a protective shield around a soul, allowing them to be used as physics objects and Sticky attaches to surfaces and explodes. The controls are simple, intuitive and fun!
HAMMERS & LAUNCHERS & SPIKES, OH MY!
The key to success is to use the wide-range of powerful level objects in a given map and link together hilarious chain reactions that wipe out your targets. A hammer will send steel balls flying. Cogs will channel objects into a given area. Conveyor belts will deposit souls into pits. There are a variety of ways of completing each map, but youâ€™ll earn more halos by using as many of these tools as possible.
Customization is key! At the start of each round, you can add objects- such as sticks of dynamite, ramps and steel balls - into the map that will dramatically alter the outcome. Place them into the map and then go for broke! Youâ€™ll earn more points for placing fewer objects, so finding that right balance of placed objects and skilled throws will pave the way for a destructive victory!
