Rafter HD for iPad and iPhone: Create Shapes, and use Logic!
This is a deceptively simple game,in which you get to create shapes, as the problems it poses on you, are open ended. You would need a little bit of understanding of physics and a lot of timing, and logic and inference to produce shapes and destroy the objective Mine.

As many of the challenges, becomes gradually difficult, and it tests your logic muscle. It adhere to the rules of Physics, as blocks turn and twist over obstacles, before they hit the Mines. The Balls you get to create Bounce their way to the Mines.
Race Against Time? Does Time Pressure makes you Creative?
Does Time pressure, helps Put your problem solving skills and logic to the utmost test by drawing Geometric Shapes blocks (Square Rectangle, Long, Short, Thin, Thick…), and launch them at the mines. You can do it in many ways, and you have to think up early, or else you would have to do it again, as the time limit would let you try only handful of tries to achieve your objective.
