Balls Love Puzzles comes from QinYuan Tian. Balls bounce around the grid and the object is to rearrange the squares in order to restore order.
JiggleSaw came out 6 years ago and is very similar. It has more features and is a fun little gem. Unfortunately, it is no longer available.
Balls Love Puzzles has 48 levels and is fun. I solved them all. The most I spent on any 1 level was about 7 minutes. On some levels the balls move pretty fast.

1. The buzz saw which, when activated, will chop down trees, and maybe Your Man.
2. Moving platforms to get Your Man across the water.
If the game had better graphics, I might stay a while longer.
The puzzles themselves, are good.

Tucker-Jones Tavern Puzzles told me that he could imagine sailors on very long journeys wanting this puzzle to have many rings.
Overall, ROBOGOYO is a good representation of this puzzle. But this puzzle begs to be handled.

Games Magazine awarded it as the Puzzle of the Year in 2013. This game's been on my mind for 5 years! But I've finally gotten around to it.
I've tackled 27 of the 40 levels. Multiple times I peeked at the solutions to get a hint.
There is a sequel called Cool Circuits Over the top. Which mysteriously is not on the company website. I have the game but have not played it yet. It won't take another 5 years.

On the leaderboard, there are over 900,000 players, which means the producers have made a boatload of money! Also, the top scorer has lived 666 years. My guess: that player has played this game a hundred times and recorded the outcome of each card TWICE (because there are 2 options for each card). Then played it to perfection.
This is one game that may have actually consulted a History Major to incorporate all the weirdest scenarios that monarchs have faced over the centuries.
Graphics: not very good. Consider the fact that there are so many artists who create their own Tarot Card decks with fantastic art.
