Bubble Ball edges out Angry Birds Lite, reaches 2M mark on iTunes

A 14-year old who built his first website in third grade, has developed a game that is topping the free charts in the Apple store.

Robert Nay
 of Spanish Fork, Utah, an eighth-grader who spends his free time helping others with computers, is the creator of "Bubble Ball." 

The physics simulator game allows players to use objects and gravity to maneuver a ball through 21 levels using geometric pieces.   The app has become so popular that it has now surpassed Angry Birds Lite as the most downloaded free game.  In the past couple of weeks, the app has been downloaded more than two million times.  

After a suggestion from friends that he try his hand at programming his own video game, Nay researched game design and development at the Spanish Fork Public Library.  He spent over a month writing more than 4,000 lines of code, using Corona SDK tools from Ansca Mobile, to build the smartphone app.  The app is available for both Apple and Android devices.

The young programmer said that he is surprised by the game's success.

"I was pretty astonished," said Nay. "When I released it, I didn't think it would do so well." 

Nay has reportedly made plans to create virtual goods and in-app purchases, as well as add more levels to "Bubble Ball".

The CEO of Nay Games also likes reading and playing the piano and trumpet in his spare time.





"This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers so I can keep it charged everywhere I go and a land line so I can actually make phone calls." -- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
