Stretched

For too long, the phrase “stretched to the breaking point” has suffered from negative connotations. It’s time to reclaim this expression from the Debbie Downers of the world and show how much fun it is to be pulled until things are so tense, you can barely contain it. And we have just the means for accomplishing this mission: Stretched.

• BALLS IN THE AIR
Stretched challenges you to launch a ball through high-flying stages via a series of slingshots and catapults. Blast through bubbles en route to the goal. The more of the bubbles you pop, the more stars you earn in each of the 84 stages. And those 84 stages are, ahem, stretched across four different worlds, each with new themes such as Sunrise, Misty, and Monochrome.

• MAN THE CATAPULTS (OR WOMAN THE CATAPULTS, WE’RE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY HERE)
Flinging your ball from catapult to catapult couldn’t feel more natural thanks to precision touch controls and a useful trajectory line that shows you the arc you are about to travel. (You don’t see the entire arc, mind you—where’s the challenge in that?)

• THINK BEFORE YOU FLICK
Solve puzzles by using different gadgets. Adhere to sticky balls, move chains and wheels to reveal the goal, and detonate bomb balls to clear a path. Many stages combines several mechanics into wonderfully clever puzzles that will leave you with a smarty-pants smile on your face.

• UNIVERSALLY APPEALING
Stretched is a universal app, so you can play it on both your iPhone/iPod touch and iPad for the cost of a single download. That’s premium gaming at bargain prices, folks.
