Start a new Rotare session and you will see brick dropping. You can move them by tapping the screen on the left or right side of the brick. If you tap below the brick, the brick will drop faster. One tap equals one cell in the matrix. To rotate the brick, rotate your iPad. You'll see, this is fun!

Steep Learning Curve
I downloaded this game hoping it would be a fine Tetris style game. And it tries to be, for sure, but it utilizes the iPad's capabilities to it's own demise. In order to rotate a falling piece, you have to rotate the iPad. Sounds cool, but the whole board shifts rather than the piece, so getting anything to line up where you want it to go requires you to lose about four hundred games to figure it out. And quite frankly, I hardly think it's worth it.
In it's defense, the game looks great and it feels like it's going to awesome even as the first piece falls. But try and get it to go where you want it to go, I dare you.
I get that it was free, but it didn't work. It kept telling me to hold the iPad vertically and wouldn't play unless the pad was straight up and down-- very uncomfortable to try and hold straight out from my face...
Not Enjoyable to Play
Rotare is GORGEOUS. I love the icon, I love the display of the game itself, the graphics and colors - great presentation. I was very, very excited to see this app because it looks like a fantastic Tetris app - simple, no frills or fuss, just clean and bright shapes.
However, I find myself never playing Rotare. It's just too counter-intuitive to play. It's very, very frustrating. To rotate the pieces, you have to tilt the entire iPad - which then shifts the entire game landscape. It doesn't feel natural or intuitive to rotate the pieces, and it DEFINITELY doesn't feel comfortable turning the iPad EVERY 2 seconds. Which makes this game, while definitely lovely to look at, not fun to play :( Otherwise, it's a pretty app that runs smoothly - if only it played like Tetris, and none of this tiresome rotating business.
