Heads up gamers, Apple has just named MildMania’s ‘rop‘ its App of the Week for this week. This means that from now through next Thursday, you can pick up the popular puzzler for free for both iPhone and iPad, a $1 savings over its usual price.

For those who haven’t played it, rop is described as a mind-bending, minimal puzzler with nearly 200 beautiful levels. In each of those levels, you must rearrange the different pieces of rope on a hexagonal grid to match the shape that you are given.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

Give your brain a workout with this smart, superbly satisfying spatial puzzler. You’ll need sharp wits and nimble fingers to arrange overlapping bands on a hexagonal grid and match increasingly complex shapes. Packed with clever variety, rubbery physics, and a learning curve that feels just right, Rop is an instantly accessible challenge you’ll want to pick up again and again.

And here is a video of the game in action:
