What more can be done in the world of precarious manipulations of gravity and inertia? Enter Imperfect Balance, the newest game in the series, which flips the Perfect Balance concept on its head. Now instead of the precision stacking of shapes into perfectly sturdy forms, Imperfect Balance features the precision stacking of shapes into perfectly unsturdy forms. It's not about perfect construction, but about perfect collapse.

After playing so many games about keeping a structure intact while balanced on a small piece of immovable object over a bottomless pit, I'd think knocking such things down would be a piece of cake! Why is this so difficult, then?

It seems easier to knock these things down when you're trying to keep them upright...

What does it mean by "Damping"?


FYI, those arrow blocks are usable in game.

I have spent 10 minutes trying to complete the third (?) level and didn't realize I could use the arrow blocks.

Not my greatest moment.


I am a huge fan of Ttursas and his games! I swear my brain orgasmed several times over. Now we can take them down! Long live physics games! Horray for Ttursas!

Okay... I fully admit I may be an idiot here, but how do you select between the 2nd and 3rd mazes? I've attempted all the usual mechanics to play lvl 3 with no effect...



Try the pop up bar at the bottom of the game.. the one with menu, reset, 1, 2, 3, etc.

The numbers are for each puzzle for the levels

Anyone else stuck on Y1?


Something I've been wondering... is it possible to get a perfect strike on every puzzle? With some puzzles (such as 2-3), it seems flat-out impossible. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't, though - not like it was always possible to balance all the bonus shapes in the iPhone games or PB2.


I just played through most of it, and the gameplay is good, but what bothers me is that there's no summary at the menu of which levels have uncollected diamonds so I know where I can try to do better.

Hook the S block on the left end of the right propeller. Put the straight block in the other hook of the S block. Drop the heavy circle on the right end of the right propeller.

Y1 is:

  1. Place the long block horizontally at the top right, bridging the gap, with room for the small heavy square at its right.

  2. Use the arrow block to tip the green L block (and heavy circle) over.

  3. Before the heavy circle gets to the edge, drop the heavy circle from high up to block it. The combined weight will flip everything.


It is NOT impossible to get strikes on every puzzle, even though it might seem impossible, it isn't.


Problem with game:
I reset it and now I cannot access the levels x, y, or z
It may have somthing to do with the fact that it doesn't reset your achievements
