  • Summary: 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 stretched until you can be stretched no more! And we have just theFor 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 stretched until you can be stretched no more! And we have just the means for accomplishing this mission: Stretched.• BALLS IN THE AIRStretched 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 FLICKSolve 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 APPEALINGStretched 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.For more information or support, please visit www.chillingo.com Expand

    The puzzles are interesting and varied, rather than intellectually complex, and the various soundtracks sound good without feeling repetitive. You'll get a few hours entertainment for a dollar, with more levels promised in the future, making this an easy game to recommend.

    Yes we've seen similar games before but Stretched has a charming premise and enough good ideas to create an enjoyable play experience.

    Despite no one is really original, the puzzles in Stretched are various and many. Shame for its graphics and soundtrack, a cheap and uninspired copy of the ones seen in World of Goo.
