Vortex For iPod Reviewed

Playlist has posted a review of Vortex for iPod. A "brick bashing" game, Vortex asks players to destroy bricks in the center of the play area by bouncing a ball off a paddle capable of rotating around the screen. Playlist gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.
From the review:
Vortex offers players two different control styles—Wheel Rotation and Finger Position. Using Wheel Rotation, the bat moves in the same direction as your finger (good to get the bat exactly where you want it). Using Finger Position, the bat tracks your finger position on the click wheel instead (better for quick reaction, though less precise). You can also set the music source (either using Vortex or your own iPod’s playlists), adjust brightness and sound effects levels, and save or abandon the game in progress.Check out the full review at the link provided below.
Playlist: Vortex Review
Vortex has multiple levels of difficulty—Newbie, Rookie, Intermediate, Pro and Expert, which let you jump ahead to later levels. Vortex starts out slow, almost ponderous, but ramps up the difficulty pretty quickly—I never got comfortable enough to play any games seriously in Pro or Expert mode without getting frustrated very quickly.
