    I would call it "just a horribly coded, badly performing attempt at an app." You should be able to recreate this app in ~30mins to an hour (realistically).

    I mean, the falling "Windows" don't cause a game over when they hit the "mac" icon. They have to hit the bottom of the screen. That is entirely fail.

    It's called "moving an image." Just do view.center = someOtherCGPoint; Also, try putting that line into a UIAnimation block.

    Haha, I agree, I'm kinda glad the project was deleted.

    Another fail was getting a low battery alert in the middle of the game.
