Apple’s free app of the week: Super Sharp

Apple on Thursday updated its App of the Week promotion with the game Super Sharp. This means that for the next 7 days you’ll be able to pick up the popular puzzler from hit developer 1Button SARL, for both iPhone and iPad, for free—a solid savings of $2.

Super Sharp is the epitome of the pick-up-and-play puzzle genre. There are no characters or qwerty storylines. Players simply use their fingers to cut through platforms, ropes and obstacles and they attempt to make their way through 120 physics-based stages.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

There’s just something incredibly elegant about Super Sharp’s minimalist puzzles. With a single swipe, you can cut through platforms, ropes, and obstacles, sending the pieces careening offscreen. Causing them to fall in just the right manner is the only way to complete each of the crisp, physics-based stages. As in 1Button’s Mr Jump, the later levels require some serious trial and error, presenting you with uncuttable pendulums, rolling spheres, and gravity-defying platforms. But the smart gameplay makes every puzzle a delight.

And here’s a video of the game in action:

Super Sharp is available in the App Store for free.
