I downloaded this.. $.99 universal, I can't lose I figure..

I only played the first few stages and it's rather difficult because of the way the game mechanics work.. you will repeat even simple levels many times lol... My suggestion would be to add a mode where you can pull back and aim the ball (like fragger, angry birds or whatever) instead of waiting for it to spin around.. seems like blind luck now to just tap when you think it's aimed right.. and the damned rotating aimer spins so fast--even in slow mode on my ipad2

Another point related to the game mechanics.. because it has no pull back and aim(just a tap).. I feel I'm less involved with the game.. this kind of control would also be nice to set the power of the shot easily..

The graphics don't look so great on my ipad2.. The objects and ball looks like they could use more shading.. It looks fantastic on my iphone4 however..

IMHO with those improvements this game could be very fun.. right now, I gave up on it.. hate the mechanics..

I thought this looked fantastic on the iPad 2, and it seems very polished.
A steal for 99c.
I liked how the levels were different sizes and you could choose.
