Bubblegym is, as far as I know, the very first computer game that reacts to how the machine is tilted. Many Apple laptops have a chip on the logic board that is there to signal if the computer is dropped. Thanks to Amit Singh (kernelthread.com) and Christian Klein, this chip's values can be read and utilized for your amusement. The gameplay is simple but challenging, control the balls by leaning the computer and get to the fruits before they disappear.

- Finally updated after almost 4 years! Updated default behavior for many new models. Modern computers have become so fast that the game became unplayable on them. This updates aims to fix that. Please send a feedback email if the game is too slow or fast on your machine or if the tilting feels backward. Please include which machine you've got.
- Mac OS X 10.3.8 or later
- MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Powerbook, iBook with sudden motion sensor (most models since 2005)
