App description: Vector Blocks is an engaging new physics based puzzle game. Guide the silver ball from its source to the goal tile by strategic placement of four types of vector blocks. These nudge the ball up, down, left or right.

Avoid going off the edge of the screen or hitting the solid tiles. Other types of tiles will help or hinder your progress. These currently include friction tiles, which slow the ball down, and bouncer tiles, which push the ball away.

Work your way through over 40 levels - some simple, some maddeningly frustrating, but all can be done, so don't give up!

Not bad. Simple but effective; clean graphics, simple sounds with a musical bent, good puzzles. Definitely worth checking out for a freebie.

To the developer, if you're listening...

This game is either really cool, or it's very hard and I'm cheating. Let me explain...

Am I supposed to be able to clear each level by placing the supplied pieces in a set position? That is, when the ball shoots out, it interacts with each supplied piece on it's way to the goal? If so, I find this to be pretty hard.

However, if I move the pieces around as the ball is traveling to the goal, and can always figure out a way to get it there. For example, ball passes through the first piece, then after it leaves, I can move that first piece to a different location to affect the ball at a later time. Additionally, I can alter the affect on the ball by placing the piece on a tile in it's path at different times, or removing it before the ball has passed over it entirely.

If I'm not "cheating", and this is an intentional gameplay mechanic, it turns this into more of an action/physics game, rather than a static puzzle solver - which is a good thing! You should advertise this as a feature.

If I am cheating, let me know, and I'll reset my game and try it the "correct way".

Thanks for the great game regardless!
