* Collect points to earn more Shots.
* Clear all the gems from each level before you run out of Shots to win the game.
* Earn achievements by getting the maximum points on a level.
* Beat the game and get your name on the leader board.
* Let your friends play and see who can get the highest score!
* Runs on both iPhone and iPod Touch

None yet, sorry - will work on some. The game has in-game tips and a how-to-play screen on the menu. It plays similar to some of the puzzle aspects of Boom Blox on the Wii.

Yes, but I don't want to just plunge in on a game with unknown gameplay. A video or more screenshots will help in purchasing decisions.

Fun game! Its like futuristic golf! The ball actually does use physics as where you hit the ball determines where it will go. I also like the style of art, fits nicely. The game is challenging at time, so you're not gonna blow through it easily. Requires you to think about how to best get the balls down, whether its shooting the environment or the balls themselves.
Definetly a good thinking game, worth a look for sure

This does look neat; Do you have any control over the level set up, or is it all about timing?

Youtube video added to original post. Sorry it's not HD (was taken from an iphone).

Hope that gives a clearer idea of the gameplay.
