App description: Balls rain from the sky. In a chaotic frenzy you attempt to destroy them to no avail. You resign to your fate. At the last moment your mind becomes clear and you begin to... understand. Why destroy them? Why not brush them aside, effortlessly? You transcend, a mystical shield arises from inside. Now a tap of your finger can solve anything...

* How to Play
o Protect your cannon! Push incoming objects to your sides by firing cannonballs at them.
o One finger fires light balls, two fires heavy. Aim by tapping the screen! In tilt mode tapping the right side fires light balls and the left fires heavy balls.

* Strategy Matters!
o If youre not careful things can get too hectic, so firing a strategic small ball is often better than a pair of big ones.
o Each object has different behaviors and hit reactions, so be sure to learn more about them before shooting wildly! Shooting some objects may help you and others may make things even worse.
o Your score is determined by how long you last and how much you fire. The balls youre awarded let you unlock even more content.

* 4 INFINITE Games in ONE!!
o Each theme has different gameplay mechanics, songs, balls, difficulty modes, and more! See how long you can survive in each!
o Collect all the GameCenter achievements to prove youre a true Ball Master! Check out the leaderboards to compare your times against the world.

* More Content Coming Soon:
o Additional themes, gameplay modes, new cannons, a shop, and more are on their way!

esdin's comments:
Currently available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad A Game With Balls is a unique, clean arcade title.

Balls are falling out of the sky towards your lone turret! Keep them from colliding with you by firing a flurry of bullets to knock them off path. Survive as long as possible, and boast about your score with Twitter!

A Game With Balls is designed to offer simple gameplay with plenty of challenge. In this first release, the player must contend with three obstacles. Balls can spawn in many sizes, and react to your bullets appropriately. They can overlap, so the player need only worry about how his bullets are being deflected. Boxes are slightly more complex, and collide with each other as well as balls. Finally, megaballs loom from the top of the screen. While these behemoths are the only object which ignore the side walls, players will need to mindful of their ammunition and give it time to refill.

Spent the night adding in a boatload of gameplay tweaks to balance the difficulty curve, as well as getting universal app support 100% functional! Will be putting video in the header post as soon as I've gotten a chance to record and edit it. May even be able to toss out another code!

Currently in review for the app store, v1.0.5 brings native iPad support as a universal application, a heavily revamped difficulty curve that scales with time, a refined options menu with control for tilt sensitivity and starting difficulty, and brings more of the physics to the forefront by adding colored balls which knock each other around.
