App Description

It's bizarre! It's dark! It's colorful! It's cute! It makes you want to brush your teeth! It's.... Ball of Woe!

• Over 70 GameCenter achievements to earn!
• Four leaderboards - become the Global God of Sadness!
• Roll through eleven levels of turmoil and finally reach Heaven!
• A rich soundtrack, tailored to each level.
• A deep storyline - gradually revealed as you roll through the world.

You - are God. A dusty God. A sepia God. A grittier kind of God.

The citizens of Nicetown are sad. And cute. And whiny.

But they've taken uncharacteristic initiative and rolled their sadness up into a ball.

Oh God - oh You - employ your salty finger, employ the magic of physics - and liberate them from their tribulations.

Over a lush soundtrack, over deliciously-painted landscapes, roll the ball away from Nicetown, interrogate the Woeful, liberate the Zus, engage in a little light mail tampering... and roll.

Roll through Forest. Roll over Mountain.
Roll through Volcano and through Cave.
Roll through the Clouds, roll into Space.

And then?

Roll into Heaven. A Heaven... of sorts.
