Levers is a clever puzzle game with an artsy aesthetic and relaxing--almost hypnotic--sound, graphics, and gameplay. Spare by design, this balancing game makes even learning how to play part of the challenge. The object is simple: you have to keep a series of increasingly bizarre objects out of the water, by tilting your phone and dragging and dropping them onto a mobile-like set of hangers that you build out as the game progresses.

Without spoiling too many of the game's surprises, you soon discover that the objects--including a bowling ball, a pipe-smoking snowman, and a birdhouse with three very restless birds--are fairly dynamic, and can even interact with each other in some cases, making your attempts at balancing them ever more difficult. Levers is an elegant and uniquely enjoyable game. Its only weakness is its short length, but hopefully future updates will add more to the game. Fortunately, you can also try out a free Flash version of Levers on the developer's Web site.
