Pocketball is an exciting and unique physics puzzle game where your goal is to guide the colored balls into their pockets. By drawing ropes between pegs, you navigate the balls around boosters, gravity wells, pesky nukes and more. Be challenged by 35 stages of increasing difficulty or try to see how many solutions you can find for a single stage. Conquer all 35 stages to unlock even more!
Rewarding, addictive and fun, Pocketball works great on any iPhone or iPod Touch.
"Pocketball offers up a tremendous level of challenge in an 'easy to learn but impossible to master' puzzler."
-- Jim Squires, Touch Arcade
"...developed with such thought and care that the game just dazzles."

What's New in Version 1.2
• Retina display support!
• Fixes visual glitches.
• Fixes an issue where levels could incorrectly appear as if they were bonus levels.
Kinda fun, but overall I don't feel it was worth the money. I find it frustrating because there is so little one can do to solve a puzzle. It ends up being lots of trial and error, with little feeling that one's solution is logical.
Also, the user interface is too minimalistic. There is no way to turn off the sound effects (or even control volume). The reset menu item only resets ALL progress when often I just want to reset the current level (yes there's another way to reset all on a level, but the reset menu is much easier to find and there's no reason it should not offer the option to reset a level). Also strings often vanish after drawing them, even though the sound effects and visuals indicate both ends are OK (I hope that bug was fixed in 1.2).
Thanks for the Update!
Been waiting for the Retina update. Now maybe I'll finally take the time to try to finish it.
