    I am excited to launch a new app called Tictoku.

    I am running a contest for only the TouchArcade forums for the next 14 days.

    If you download the app, and leave a honest review you will be entered into a contest for a $100 amazon gift card.

    Come back to this forum and leave your user name so I can verify.

    thanks,
    David

    The basics for the game of TicToku was initially developed around 2005 by Dr. Richard Shuntich. He developed TicToku(originally called 7-to-11) primarily with the intent of teaching his grandchildren basic math and strategy skills in a competitive, quick-play game.

    Dr. Shuntich was a psychology professor at Eastern Kentucky University and had a real passion for education, kids, and challenging puzzles. He published Richard’s Riddles word puzzles for many years in his local newspaper, The Richmond (KY) Register, and he was always searching for new ways to engage, educate, and challenge people’s minds.

    Around the time of the development of TicToku, Sudoku was the Shuntich family’s game of choice. Since Sudoku doesn’t allow play against one another and some of his younger grandchildren had difficulty with Sudoku, Dr. Shuntich developed a two-player game that used similar concepts to Sudoku but could be played competitively by kids and adults alike similar to Tic Tac Toe. Within a short period of time, the game of TicToku was born. One of Dr. Shuntich’s sons, Douglas Shuntich, put together a game board with magnetic pieces for each player’s numbers. The grandchildren loved playing the game and were learning math and strategy skills at the same time.

    After Dr. Shuntich passed away in 2011, another son, Dan Shuntich, became committed to developing and launching an App for TicToku. Now in App form, the mission of TicToku remains the same as Dr. Shuntich’s original vision, to help educate and challenge minds. The App is free to download, profits earned from TicToku’s in-game advertising donated to causes Dr. Shuntich supported (e.g., education).
    I am curious if you would try it out and share on your blog?
     
  2. I don't think it is appropriate to ask for 5 star reviews. Having said this, grannies in their 80's needed a light thinking game and found it entertaining. Well done.

    I've amended the post and spoken to the dev. Leave an honest review (you can't ask for 5 star reviews only)

    Crashes every time on my iPad Air.
    It happens after I have completed a game and it is supposed to go to the next game with a higher number. The game crashes after I tap 'next.'
    Two times, I have played through number 9.
    But all other times I have been able to play only one or two levels. (7 & 8)
    I have played, I believe, 10 times so far.

    Crashes a lot on iPad Air. If you could fix it, that would be great.

    Posted my review as XenoRedI. Thank you for the generous contest.
     
  14. Updated to version 1.3 on iPad mini 2 (no crashes for me). The added Challenging level is a lot better than Medium level, though I was still able to beat it. I will update my iTunes review.

    Love this game! It's my go to app whenever I have free time & always before bed and of course when I wake up.

    Bozo player, you're very good at this game!
