Soft body object type
Physical object, deforms on collision.
This causes the physics engine to evaluate your object, causing your object to be seen as more than part of the world (a simple wall or floor). This object can now be seen by other active objects.
At this point your object is not affected by normal physics (e.g. gravity) but is seen as more than just a background object. This is useful for interaction between objects that need not have physics properties, such as gravity, e.g. a button on a wall.
Ghost gives the object the ability to pass through other objects. This helps save processing time while calculating objects’ physics (e.g. bouncing, friction, etc.). A collision with another object is still detected and reported to your game logic.
If the object is set to "Invisible", it isn't rendered in the Game Engine.
Collision advanced settings.
Mass affects the amount of force that is required to move an object. The greater the mass the greater the force that need to be applied to the object in order to move the object. Mass will not cause objects to fall faster or slower. To slow an object down use dampening, if you wish to accelerate the falling rate increase gravity (normal gravity is 9.81).

The Blender Game Engine has a number of ways of dealing with the shapes of objects. The reason that the game engine avoids highly accurate, per face object collisions, is due to the high level of processing power that it would demand. It is often faster, during game play, to uses a simpler system such as a box or a sphere for an object that’s shape is very similar.
The bounds are calculated from the object’s centre, which is designated by the pink dot normally at the centre of your object. It is not uncommon or useful to move this centre to a more convenient location. This can be done in the Editing context (F9) and choosing one of the 3 options that focus around Centre movement (see Mesh for more info).
Convex Hull and static Triangle Mesh are designed for uses with World objects floors, walls, trees, etc.
Blender has no generic way of interacting with hollow objects. An example, which would be difficult to create, would be a cup to shake dice in.
