Throwing a ball into a box becomes an surreal challenge in puzzler sequel Trick Shot 2

Trick Shot was 2015's clever physics-based puzzler, created by the lead designer of Monument Valley and revolving a simple premise of launching a ball into a box. This sequel gives that challenge a stylish upgrade, with both a uniquely surreal modern art aesthetic and imagining new mechanics to wring from that seemingly simple concept.

Trick Shot 2 is both a familiar and different prospect; mechanically, the gameplay remains the same as you drag on the screen to slingshot a ball across each stage, bouncing and rolling into a difficult-to-reach box. Early stages may require merely some precision and a graceful arc, but soon bank shots off barriers, bounches through portals and off trampolines, and other more inventive manuvers are needed to navigate Trick Shot 2's obstacles. Levers, switches, shifting gravity play, and multiple balls firing in sync play a role as stages become more complex, and if the main levels aren't challenging enough, you can design and share your own through the sequel's new level creator.

Trick Shot 2 is available for $2.99 on the App Store. An Android release is also in the works.
