About this game

Dozens of balls are bouncing around in two boxes, and the Poor Devil can open the gate between the boxes.
The aim of this rather addictive game is to help the Poor Devil separate the fast balls from the slow ones.
With each new level the number of balls increases, and so does the difficulty of the game.
This physics game, designed by physicists Federico Tibone and Danilo Cinti, is based on a famous «thought experiment» proposed by 19th-century Scottish scientist James Clerk Maxwell:
If we conceive of a being whose faculties are so sharpened that he can follow every molecule in its course, such a being [..] would be able to do what is impossible to us.
Maxwell’s Demon, as it became known, would be able to defeat the Second Law of Thermodynamics and produce a reduction in entropy, a physical quantity that normally always increases.
This is exactly the Poor Devil’s task: each level of the game starts with maximum entropy, and is only completed when (with some help from the player!) entropy is minimized.

Poor Devil! can be played freely up to level 10. The full game, up to the final level 60, is then accessibile through an in-app purchase
All players can access a constantly updated Hall of Fame which lists the world’s ten best scores for each level.
In addition, every 5 levels each player is granted a selfie with the Poor Devil, that can then be shared with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
