WPCentral broke the news that Pencel Games’ Gerbil Physics would be coming to Xbox Live this week a little early. So it’s only fair that we should also reveal that the game has hit the Marketplace a few hours ahead of time as well. That’s right, you can get Gerbil Physics right now.
Gerbil Physics is a physics-based puzzle game that’s overflowing with cute and dripping with adorable. Each level presents stacks of adorable, well drawn gerbils which players must then knock over with well-placed bombs. The Windows Phone version includes 72 levels (three times as many levels as the original Xbox 360 game), lots of new animations, music, and some entertaining story sequences, too.
We’ve spent some time with the Windows Phone port and come away impressed. Since Xbox Live is drowning in physics puzzlers, it takes something extra to stand out from the crowd – namely personality! And anyone whose heart hasn’t been hardened by the rampant cynicism of the internet will find it warmed by these cuddly gerbils. The opening levels ease you into the gameplay mechanics and feature some nice new tutorial text. I do wish you had the option to replay a level immediately upon completing it (for a higher score) rather than automatically going on to the next level though.
Gerbil Physics costs $2.99 and there is a free trial. Get it here on the Marketplace. Thanks, Donald B., for the heads up!

You're the man Paul. I was hoping it showed up early, but not this early lol
I've been looking forward to this game! Time to try it out and see if it's buy worthy!
Hey if you want to restart the level after completion just hit the back button.
