Rising above its share of painful delays upon launch, the scrotum crunching game "Ow My Balls!" has made its triumphant return to the App Store. I found this game to be highly addictive by kicking Joe the juggler square in the nards, sending him up to new heights with fantastical fart boosting powers. The more objects you hit on the way down, the more bonus points you gain, which means higher points and a larger arsenal of fart rockets.
One of the unique characteristics of this app is the ability to record your own annoying sound effects to carry you through each round. You can record up to five sound effects in order to make the game play your own. Hearing that obnoxious ball handler yell "Ow my balls!" when straddling a fire hydrant after falling three stories is pure genius. Even better when it's your own voice. Every now and again you'll hear him just scream "balls!" which is so worth waiting for.
Creator Josh Michaels has imagined an instant iPhone classic here, leaving plenty of room for growing this one into a franchise. Ow My Balls! reveals a few sweet surprises both high above the rooftops and on the ground as the game progresses. Illustrator Timothy Smith kept the graphics deliberately simple and colorful, adding an instant likability to what I expect will become a cult favorite among iPhone fanatics everywhere.
Ow My Balls! totally lives up to its name, quickly moving into epic ridonkulous status with each round of progressive play. You will not be disappointed spending $.99 cents on this one. (video demo after jump)
