Rack Brains

This is free game that came out a while ago and nobody seemed to mention anything about it. It reminds me a lot of the tower puzzles in Aurora Feint.

It's not the flashiest game in the world, but it's free and it's oddly addicting.

Edit: It's actually $2.99. It was only free when it first came out. Guess I should have made this thread earlier.

Oh, snap.
I would delete this thread, but this is a pretty addictive game, so I'll leave it.

It's not free here in the Australian iTunes store it is AUD$3.99 (I think this is US$2.99). Edit: you already know!

It might be overlooked by people because the gameplay is not described in the app description. It says that "On every stage you only have limited moves to let all blocks disappear." But it doesn't say how you make them disappear. For example is this a match 3 type game? Do the blocks slide on the screen. Tilt controls or touch controls? Are you arranging the blocks in patterns?

Also the slang used in the description turns me off it and makes me think gameplay will not be polished.

And it says that "stage 18 is harder than another. When this app have 100 reviews (not just rate), I'll tell you how to clear stage 18." Well that attitude turns me off purchasing.

Given the above, I might try this if it is free but I'm not going to hand over AUD$3.99 for it.

Not worth any money. I got this for free a long time ago and it's pretty polished. But... there is no depth and I am sure there is a free flash version somewhere.

DO NOT BUY.

I actually agree. It's a good game, but there are a ton much better games for $3 or less. If you really like the tower puzzles in Aurora Feint it might be worth considering.
