TheGodless's comments:
I'm not good with posting videos or links, but since I couldn't find anything on Touch Arcade about a game that I think has snuck in under the radar, I figured I would at least try to help get the word out. Manowar is a premium one finger physics puzzler that I know a lot of Touch Arcadians (is that what we call ourselves) would dig. The graphics are top notch and the gameplay is unique enough to stand out from the usual physic puzzlers/ball rollers. The game isn't limited to being just another ball tilting maze style game, as it also has platforms and recoil from canons (that you often use to bounce canon balls to wherever they need to go. The game's nautical theme fits nicely with the platforms and canon driven gameplay. It's clear that a lot of love went into Manowar and I had a blast playing the first dozen or so levels.

The further I get into Manowar, the better it gets. C'mon Touch Arcade. It's such a highly polished and well thought out game.

Do you have a link to a gameplay video?

(Edit) never mind. There's a video on the App Store. It does look interesting.

I agree! This game is really well done and it's based on a clever idea. I'm still on the first world and find it very enjoyable; despite being tilt controlled and physics based, it's more of a straight puzzle, and you really need to think about what you need to do to pass a level.

MANOWAR, MANOWAR, LIVING ON THE ROAD! WHEN WE'RE IN TOWN, SPEAKERS EXPL--oh, what? This isn't about the band?

i r disappoint

EDIT: Seriously though? Glad this thread was bumped. Didn't even know this game existed. Bough and almost done downloading. Just hope there are no problems with the band regarding the name. :/

Okay, I'll be honest here. I'm a little shocked by how good this is. Completely original idea, fantastic clean visuals, everything's polished up the wazoo, you have a choice between tilt and drag controls...I'll be back later, I need to play more. I was NOT expecting this.

Some of the solutions are devious!

Here's a clue, you need to stack a ball on top of another at one point.
