<b>About Rafter</b>
So you think you're the best of the best of the best? Maybe you haven't played Rafter yet! This deceptively simple game needs a little bit of physics and a lot of timing to hit your target - a miniscule red mine.

Put your problem solving skills and logic to the test by drawing blocks(square, rectangle, long, short, thin, thick. well, you get the picture!), and launching them at the mines. And our friendly timer will keep ticking away till you master the trick!

Rafter has 101 progressive levels of challenges. There are multiple solutions to each level, but its upto good ol' you to figure out which one is the best. Oh, and we upped the ante by tying in your scores with the number of moves you make. The equation is simple: Each level has a fixed number of moves and the score increases when you solve the game using the least number of moves.

And while you're trying to do all this, make sure to watch out for swinging platforms, fans and other not-so-friendly objects! Sounds fun doesn't it?

Looks good, but my concern is only 21 levels, and in the video it took roughly a minute to play through 7 of them?

Very interesting. Kind of a sketch-on-vellum motif going on there. Very stylish. Like a mix between Touch Physics and Doodle Bomb. Seems like there aren't nearly enough levels though, but hopefully the dev can add more.

I like what I see, but also concern about the lack of levels. Looks like the game can end within ten minutes?

It mentions a levels creator in the appstore description, but not in the video.

So does anyone know if there is one? And if there is, can you share levels online or locally only?

Any more input from people who actually played this? It looks really nice but I'm not sure whether or not I should grab it.
