    Reviewed as RickyBamBam in the US Appstore. Hello there, I mentioned this in the review as well, but it may take a while before the review gets approved as usual. I just suggested that the spiky objects start off slower in the beginning, and as your score gets higher, the objects move faster as well. Which provides balanced game-play for all, and a pleasant gaming experience. Or, I just need more practice is all! :D Nonetheless, it's a fun little app.

    You have to send the money using the GIFT option. That way, PayPal takes nothing.

    "The game is quite hard but addictive. Rules are simple: collect as many points as you can without getting hit. As easy as this may sound, you'll have a hard time pushing your record higher. This is definitely my new addiction!"


    Thanks for the great game and for the contest, too

    Thanks for the review williams yee, is there anyway you could help me describe what you mean by the random success pop up that you mentioned in the review? So I can address that problem but I need to know why it's there/or how it came up.

    The speed is something I am going to have to adjust and play around with, was easier for me to play my game while testing since I caught a pattern, but those were my assumptions on difficulty that need to be tuned around.

    The Twitter issue you're mentioning is it part of when you decide to cancel posting to Twitter and it won't let you leave Twitter and go back to the game without having to close the game and starting over?

    Hi I been looking at the reviews in my interface and yours hasn't showed up, I tried waiting 24 hours to check again and it's still not there, is it showing up on your end? I want to make sure you get proper credit for reviewing.

    The last review I see is by rnarvin, I'll check again and I'm sure it'll show up soon, but just been checking.

    That's so strange. I can clearly see my review when I check my itunes. I even looked thru my past reviews page on my account and I took a screenshot here:

    That really is strange :O

    I just want to help since I got the same issues.

    About the random success pop up, it happens when I open the app. But while playing, it also suddenly pops up.

    About the speed, you need to adjust it. It is way too fast. My suggestion is at first, the speed is slow but as the score increases, the speed should gradually increase as well to add up the challenge.

    What I experienced was that it suddenly popped up even without me pressing the Twitter button. Yes, there is no way to close it the pop up.

    I also found a bug (I did not mention this in my review). When the character dies because of the time, it sticks to the wall even after a new game has started. The only way to get rid of it is by starting new game from the home screen.

    As for Aseret, I also do not see your review. Perhaps there is something wrong with the App Store.

    So, pickled_onion, I suggest that when the contest ends, you wait one or two days so that all the reviews show up on the App Store. Then after that, you pick a winner.

    Hey chain94,

    Thank you for the insight into the problem, this is good way to test, I think in future I might have to apply to test flight to get some pre-feedback before releasing the game.

    These are all issues that I need to really address to create a fun game.

    I do apologize to those who dislike the quality of the music upfront, as for sounds and graphics we're not a profitable indie studio yet so we aren't able to hire out the best in song write.

    Aseret, and all others, I think it's imperative that I wait a few days before picking a winner to this contest because it does not seem that some of the reviews are showing up in the App Store on my developer page yet. I don't want anyone who wrote a review to miss being credited. I want to assume it takes a day or two for the review to propagate through the system, so the last review I'm seeing is currently rnarvin in the US store.

    Hi,

    This is the sample of success pop up message. Is totally random, this time is at menu screen. Sometimes at setting screen and etc.

    I think we all welcome developers like you that serious and putting effort into game that will work. If you really need help for beta testing in future, you may post a thread in upcoming forum. I'm sure lots of volunteer beta testers would be interested. :)
