Grabimo is free

I have not played this one before. Cute icon. Looks like it could be fun. Might as well try it out while it won't cost you anything.

Getting a few good reviews.. only free for 2 days.
http://www.apptism.com/apps/grabimo/reviews

"Game Features:

- 45 different levels (puzzles)
- Beautiful graphics and animations
- Cute and funny animal sound effects
- In-game music or simply listen to your own music
- Increasing difficulty as levels progress
- Advanced menus to select previous levels
- Game speed settings for those more 'advanced' gamers (you know who you are!)
- Addictive game play, you'll want to keep on playing!

How to Play:

It couldn't be any easier to play! Simply take a look at the top right map of animals (this is the puzzle solution) and recreate the puzzle by tapping the appropriate animal.

There is no time limit so you can play at your leisure. The levels start out very simple and gradually increase in complexity.

Enjoy playing Grabimo, but then again we already know you will."

It's cute and all, but a little slow paced. Whenever you try to place a block in advance you get a wait Please Wait...

It's definitely cute. Pick it up for free. I feel like once you finish the 45 levels, you'll probably be done with it for good, if not sooner. But it's a nice little diversion.

Though I agree with the above post; It's rather slow paced.

Also, the pandas sound like goats...

The game is fun, although I agree with others that once you play it, there isn't much more to see. But its free so you can't go wrong!

Just noticed an option in settings that makes the grab-hook faster! Though you still can't select the destination in advance until the hook has totally lifted the block.

Just noticed this too. Not sure why anyone would prefer the slower hooks, but there you have it!

About 7 or so levels in, it starts to get a little less glaringly obvious, but it remains to be seen how long anyone will remain interested. Very cute theme though.

Slow hooks are in xD It doesn't even record your performance, so there is no incentive to get perfect score in any level, you just need to pass it.
