Are there any other control schemes besides hold your finger over the cart?

Maybe a relative touch control scheme?

Only the one control scheme - and it actually does take a little to get used to. I am still getting used to it. You tap where you want to grab blocks with jewels, and then tap where you want to drop them off again. But, any touches grab or drop and so I am accidentally doing a fair amount of mis-aiming.

However, I think that is a little learning curve which is fine to me. I have played the first 3 levels, and I am thinking this is going to be a blast. Making particular shapes that are being asked for give you bonuses, and making multiple correct shapes- well I think I got a 3 combo, and it wound up clearing the whole board, right before I was going to die....

Graphics are great as expected, and it plays wonderfully on iPad at 2x. To me this plays a lot like the Xbox360 game AstroPop although it does not have the same sort of powerups. But the mechanics are somewhat similar or grabbing blocks, and transferring them to other areas to make matches of 4 or more blocks while the whole column is slowly dropping towards crushing your cart.

This game is something to see....and play. Small learning curve as mentioned but a great game. I actually was doing something of importance but this game has simply torn me from it. I find it that good.
Thanks pluto6 for the recommend.

Later edit: Been playing more and this game is getting even better. Coming into a powerup and like the added bonus of trying to match the shapes given in the right hand column. 10tons make such terrific games and this is no exception. Tis a very cool game indeed.

Even later edit:
Level 3-1 The Ruins of Bubu Nahca- when my 3rd life is lost and then click onto the ok button I've encountered only a black/blank screen that just hangs there. I have to exit the game (or black/blank screen in this case) by hitting my home button.

Thanks for the positive comments!

Actually we spent quite some time tweaking the controls since the requirements for this kind of game play are quite unique. You need to do three things: pull bricks, push bricks and also move the cart to collect the jewels without touching the bricks. In the desktop version you could attach the cart onto the mouse cursor, but on a touch device this isn't possible so we had to come up with new ways. It seems they turned out quite well after you play a few levels and get a hang of it.

Remember to collect all the jewels! Also, make shapes for the shape bonus and collect even more jewels

Azkend, Dragons, Sparkle are all great games. I will take a look today at the PC demo. The video reminded me a bit of Popcap's Astropop, I loved that one.

From the video this does not look like my kind of thing at all. However since I am yet to play a game from 10tons that was so much as a notch below outstanding, definitely picking this up regardless.
