It can take some adjustment to get used to controlling the environment and not the main character, but this part-platform puzzler, part-rhythm game is a unique experience that'll keep you glued to your iPhone.

For most puzzle platformers you'll be put in control of a character that's subject to the whims of a cruel environment that can push, block and direct you towards various traps. In Rollout by Bulkypix you get to reverse the roles, taking control of the environment to bounce, speed up and slow down an adorable ball of fluff called Wabba as he makes his way to each exit.
Once Wabba warps in to each level he'll curl up and start rolling until you've completed the level, leaving you to shift various bumpers that will affect his direction. Touching the screen will allow you to deactivate and move the controls faster in one direction only, making timing critical to passing each level. Later levels add environmental hazards like screens that prevent you from activating controls.
The graphics are minimalistic and clean, with a futuristic laboratory design dominating each of the levels. This can can border on being bland, but the easy to follow designs help immensely on later levels. Openfeint is supported for achievements, but no leaderboards are currently available for speed-running. A level editor also would have been a great addition, but the 50 available levels will keep most players busy for a long time.
If you're after a unique challenge and feel like a bit of turn-about revenge against puzzle games that constantly control you then you'll get a big kick out of Rollout.
