Bringing a rocket-powered weasel and challenging puzzle action to the palm of your hand, Freeze Tag Games recently introduced Rocket Weasel to the Android Market.

The game follows the story of Mr. Weasel, leader of "Weasel's School for Hunting Chickens," who takes his students on a late night field trip to a hen house. In a wild twist of fate, the farmer traps Weasel's students in surprisingly sophisticated hanging cages, leaving Mr. Weasel to rescue them while also capturing up to three chickens per level. The game is your basic trajectory-based puzzler, requiring players to carefully calculate direction and magnitude to blast through each cage. The level system is based on the familiar three-stars dynamic, but in this case the stars are hapless chickens. Adding a unique element to gameplay, users can unlock new rockets by progressing through the game, each putting its own twist on your rocket-powered experience.

While Rocket Weasel may not seem like anything new at first glance, the game is very polished, and genuinely fun (yet at times quite challenging) to play. If you're looking for a great game to pick up in your spare time, Rocket Weasel is definitely worth checking out. Just click through the Market link below to grab the game for free.

    "Trajectory based puzzler" . In other words, Angry Birds knock off?

    Can you say Angry Birds Rio?

      Well, it is in the same genre, but it's quite a bit different from Angry Birds, just look at the video.

    Angry Birds was not the first trajectory based puzzler game in the world.
