Freeze!

It was a wonderful day for our anonymous hero, at least until the moment when he was torn from his loved ones by a viciously sharp grappling hook.

Locked in a cramped cell on a planet far, far away, our hero could give in to despair and abandon himself to his fate. But with your help he can overcome gravity, turn worlds, and even escape!

Solving the rotating, physics-based puzzles is easy; just use your finger to continuously turn the cell in both directions around our hero. Of course you also have to make clever use of the Freeze! button, which can overcome gravity. Sound simple? It is at first...

Freeze! offers completely new and yet immediately intuitive game mechanics, delightfully gloomy graphics from the internationally renowned pop-up designer and illustrator Jonas Schenk, and a very sinister soundtrack from noted Swiss electronic/trance musician Karl Lukas.

Highlights of Freeze!

* the first world offers 25 unique and thrilling levels
* there are 15 free bonus levels
* additional worlds can be bought later as an in-app purchase at a very low price
* use intuitive touch screen control to turn our heros cell
* take on lasers, deadly traps, and cruel opponents
* unique style of illustration and collage just looks really good
* wonderful gloomy soundtrack from Swiss trance master Karl Lukas
* GameCenter Leaderboards & Achievements who can escape the prison worlds the fastest?

Not sure why this is free, but I know what I'll be doing tonight instead of reading for class tomorrow...

OK, fine, I'll finish my reading first.

I give up.

Works for me, as long as the cost is reasonable!

I guess my concern was more along the lines of the specifics, but yeah.

Hopefully the freeze mechanic and expanded puzzle types add something substantial to make this title more than just a slightly prettier clone of Cado.

For reference, a visual comparison of the two games - note the level design, "eyeball" main character, spikes and swirly exit portal:
