Line 'em up and take 'em out for endless fun! If you are a fan of puzzle games, then you will be assured some great solitary time with Gyrotate. With it's retro-look, neon colors, and rotating rows you may even be hard pressed to put it down.

Gyrotate is a great game if you love puzzles, it's easy to learn and tough to master. This game is one of the better puzzle games that I have played, and it combines great graphics with simple gameplay. At $0.99 this game is well worth it. (Great Puzzle Game)

Gyrotate got my attention quick and had me frustrated and having fun in no time. This game is very simple yet takes strategy to get far. I give this app the thumbs up because of the challenging gameplay and unique look.

Gameplay Trailer:



Special Pieces:



Description:
It's an action-puzzle game where you have to rotate the layers on the board to make matches of 4 or more. It sounds simple, but you're fighting against the time bar, so you'll need all your concentration to keep going. There are also a bunch of special pieces that spice up the gameplay and add an extra level of strategy.


Features:
Automatic saving, which allows you to come back to the game right where you left off.
Special pieces such as clocks, bombs and locks enhance the gameplay.
3 difficulty settings (easy, normal and hard) to cater for users of all abilities.
In-game music that will automatically switch itself off if you're already playing music on your iPod/iPhone.
Hints are provided to help you make matches whenever you get stuck.
Open-ended gameplay means that how far you progress will only be limited by your skill.
Detailed statistics to help you keep track of every single aspect of your playing habits.

Does this game remind anyone else of Cloak & Dagger?
