Imagine our delight when we came across this new app – Ow My Balls! by Jetson Creative. Our eyes got really big and a huge grin covered our face. Sweet, got our next casualty … the Ow My Balls! iPhone app … this ought to be a load of KRAPPS. So we strapped on our Nutty Buddy cojones protector and proceeded with caution to explore the world of Ow My Balls!
But tell you what … Ow My Balls! pissed us off. Why? Because it’s freaking hysterical … well made – high quality … outstanding hand-drawn graphics … and contains hilarious custom recorded sound effects. Screw you Ow My Balls!? – you suck … jacked up our KRAPPS article serving up this fine piece of app wizardry … come here for a nut shot.
So in a nutshell (no pun intended) … Ow My Balls! is an iPhone game centered around the mishaps of Joe The Juggler. The game begins by kicking Juggler Joe off the ledge of a tall building (why he’s there in the first place, who knows, dude has a death wish or something) – obviously a painful kick as he immediately cries out – “OW MY BALLS!” … hey, if you were a juggler and lost your balls, you’d be sad and cry out too.
So as Joe falls, using the iPhone’s accelerometer, the user attempts to hit various obstacles and have Joe travel the longest distance possible before making impact with the ground. And that poor Juggler Joe. When he finally hits the pavement – he receives another epic nut shot and understandably, firmly clutches his sack in dismay and declares –
“OW MY BALLS!”.
To score points, simply hit obstacles. To travel greater distances, ignite fart jetpacks (yes – FART JETPACKS) which will allow Joe to increase his altitude, thus going farther. And if you really kick butt (errrr – kick balls), you can ultimately become a Ball Master (sort of like a Jedi Master, but better).
And get this … to our knowledge … a iPhone game “first”. You have the ability to record your own “OW MY BALLS!” moan …. or your fart … or various impact sounds. Too freaking cool – an iPhone game featuring your own voice and fart. Rock on!
So as we said – this game completely sick (in a good way, like phat)! High quality build, user-friendly controls, hand-drawn urbanesque graphics, custom recorded sounds, ridiculous value at 99 cents and best of all … absolutely pant pissing hysteria! Because bottom line … although getting hit in the nards hurts – it’s funny (especially as a viewer and not the recipient) … maybe it’s a guy thing – maybe it’s a MTV Johnny Knoxville Jackass thing … but nut shots combined with quality programming are a crack up and if you don’t think so, go buy yourself a sense of humor – heard they’re on sale this week at Walmart! If you already have a sense of humor, check out Jetson’s hysterical video below (pay attention to the end, dude really get’s hit in the nuts when it was supposed to be a fake pop – LOL)
Back with a sense of humor? Good! Click here to purchase Ow My Balls! for only 99 cents. Totally worth it!
Obviously a lot of time and effort was put into the creation of Ow My Balls! and it shows throughout this brilliant slap-stick humor application. We can’t even imagine the nut shots Jetson Creative had to endure from Apple to get something like this approved … but tell you what … glad they have a high pain tolerance and certainly deserve the claim 100% anti-KRAPPS Certified!
We decided to check up on these kooks at Jetson Creative and discovered something really cool … a community thing … an iPhone developer thing. Over on their blog, Jetson Creative documented every step of Ow My Balls! creation … from Conception to Completion … it’s like a blueprint for constructing an iPhone app, with valuable information and insights. Very cool of Jetson Creative for sharing the knowledge with fellow and future developers … whole lotta love and good karma going on at Jetson … guess we take back our nut shot comment and just give them a hug. You should give these kind folks a hug too (crap we are freaking sappy-lame), click here to buy the app and give Jetson a virtual hug.
