Update: Help Me Fly 1.0.2

Help Me Fly, another of this humble reviewer's top 10 games of 2013, was also recently updated.

The meat of the update is 30 new puzzle (actually 26, since 4 are just instructions), which however have to be unlocked with a $1.99 in-app purchase.

The new puzzles contain four new elements. The first is a beam which powers pieces remotely:

Then there are boxes which must not be next to a powered piece:
Batteries that can send power in only one direction:
And finally, pieces that split the energy beam:
The new elements didn't impress me particularly; they feel a bit forced, with the exception of the short circuit element which is used to good effect in some of the puzzles.

Also, I think that the average difficulty of the new puzzles is a bit easier than the original ones. Either that, or I've learned to think like the designers, and go in the opposite direction of what would seem the obvious solution :-)

The new puzzles can be tried before buying, so if you have the game give them a try.
If you don't have the game, what are you waiting for? Buy it, it's good.
