iPad App Review: Rafting HD

Maybe you haven’t played Rafter yet! This deceptively simple game needs a little bit of physics and a lot of timing to hit your target – a miniscule red mine.

Every person I read reviews from seems to have their favorite type of game; from arcade style, to puzzles, logic, driving, get the drift. I love the games that you have to hit a target with a shape you draw, it falls against gravity and you hope you get it just right. Physics with strategy , maybe a little luck and timing. No question I could play this for hours. Right up there with touch physics, crayon physics, and the rest of them. If you are also a fan, this is guaranteed not to disappoint!

Put your problem solving skills and logic to the test by drawing blocks (square, rectangle, long, short, thin, thick… well, you get the picture!), and launching them at the mines. And our friendly timer will keep ticking away till you master the trick!

Rafter has 101 progressive levels of challenges. There are multiple solutions to each level, but its upto good ol’ you to figure out which one is the best. Oh, and we upped the ante by tying in your scores with the number of moves you make. The equation is simple: Each level has a fixed number of moves and the score increases when you solve the game using the least number of moves.

And while you’re trying to do all this, make sure to watch out for swinging platforms, fans and other not-so-friendly objects! Sounds fun doesn’t it?

One of its kind physics based game in which the player can sketch objects of required sizes

Open feint enabled to share the scores
