Gerbil-fuelled demolition explodes onto Xbox 360

by: Chad -
The box art sold me on posting this news item for Gerbil Physics.  It ends up being its own introduction and does better than any whimsical statement I could create.  Check it out:


After you've feasted on that bad boy for a few minutes, you might start to wonder what you can do in the game.  Basically, there are structures made up of gerbils that you have to destroy.  Your arsenal includes bombs, ropes and "disintegrators."  There are 24 levels, wipe-out medals, and even Iron Gerbils. 

The real reason to take note of Gerbil Physics is that it's only 80 MS Points on Xbox Live Marketplace. Take a look at the video below. The game was actually released earlier this month.  If it strikes your fancy, click here to buy it or to download the demo.
