    You know where it went in. You know where it came out... but how did it get there? Roll a ball through covered pathways watching and listening carefully for any kind of movement. Did the ball just hit a Bouncer and then a Splitter right there and there? Perfect! That’s one path down, and a whole bunch more to go! Welcome to the world of Pathstorm!

    Features

    The full version of Pathstorm is chock full of features:

    * Over 130 standard levels without time limits.
    * 60+ timed challenge levels.
    * Many kinds of playfield objects to give your mind a workout.
    o Bouncers deflect balls 90 degrees.
    o 4-Directional Bouncers can reflect balls back the way they came or even send them straight through!
    o Splitters take one ball and turn it into 3 balls.
    o Shifters shift the ball clockwise or counterclockwise and send it on its way in its original direction.
    o Twirlers deflect the ball either clockwise or counterclockwise.
    o Scramblers are playfield objects that don’t necessarily face the right way. If incorrect, the ball exits at the wrong location.
    o Switchers change direction any time they are hit by the ball.
    o Fast and slow balls add to the challenge.
    * Embark on a Journey through distant lands collecting trophies to bring back to your village.
    o Every time you Reset a Journey, a new set of Journey levels are created. It’s different every time you start over!
    o Massive, colorful map unlocks itself as you proceed.
    o 50 animated Journey story rewards.
    * Rotated levels provide a whole different point of view.
    * 10 playfield themes.
    * Interactive tutorials describe every gameplay feature.
    * Two game types... It’s like playing completely different games!
    o Magic Balls Mode - Solve each puzzle by watching the balls through gaps in the level tiles! Objects light up when hit in Find the Exits levels.
    o Mystery Balls Mode - Balls are invisible, even for cleared paths, and you're completely on your own in Find the Exits levels.
    * Special power-up buttons available to help you solve the level: o Not sure where the ball is in a mess of bounces? The Magic Ball button could be just the ticket you need to find that last Bouncer.
    o The Hint button can be used to show you the location of the next hidden object on the path.
    o Turn the entire level into scramblers with the All Scramblers button.
    * Generate nearly endless levels in the Puzzle menu. o Build levels from 5×5 to 30×20.
    o Control how many Bouncers, Splitters, Shifters, Twirlers, Scramblers, and Switchers end up on your level.
    o Throw in randomly placed walls in the middle of the level for extra fun.
    o Tweak every setting that goes into level creation, including those used to create the Journey and Challenge levels.
    o and more...!
    * Create and Edit your own levels.
    * Access all your Favorite levels!
    o Save any level as a Favorite to play later.
    o Compete against yourself, your family, or your friends.
