I did beta testing on this app, and the basic play mechanics are to do matching to get all the balls off the pinwheel. You can bank your shots off the side, and everything that hits the balls attached to the pinwheel causes it to spin.

The spinning physics are good - more balls, heavier (theroretically) and so not as much spin. Fewer balls on the center pinwheel causes some pretty fast spinning.

No powerups in the middle zones, but you do have 3 silver balls that basically cut a swath and so can be used to clear off big chunks of balls. The silver balls do regenerate.

There are a number of different patterns on the pinwheels. 3 difficulty levels.

The little dots on the bottom left indicate how far you are to getting more balls being added. Not necessarily ball for ball, it is a little more like a relative meter...

Quite challenging - and can be frustrating when you work to get balls in the right spot - but - ooopsss... the pin wheel spins and moves the alignment...


As an aside - I have been testing this over the past month or so, and I find it interesting that there have been several other apps recently released with the same sort of spin matching... maybe things just come and go in waves???

Those other have the firings from the bottom - this one obviouly from the top, which also creates a difference in perspective especially for angled shots. The shots will ricochet around the entire board for a short time before disappearing if there is no hit.

Game over if any of the center balls on the pinwheel cross over the max diameter line - typically going to be on the sides..
