    Hi - just wanted to announce that Rockchinko is in final QA and will be in the app store very soon. It's a combination of rock n' roll meets pinball meets pachinko. Simple idea: just eliminate the red pegs and using whatever means available... tilt, powerups (including a flamethrower!!), and some clever bank shots. Hopefully we'll get through the submission process quickly.

    The early levels are very simple and peggle / poddle-ish as you learn the controls but as it gets into the higher levels it becomes a bit more puzzle like and you've got to figure out how to navigate through the puzzle that has platforms, switches, and things like that.

    I liked the look of this one, so I put up a brief news post on the website. Looking forward to release, will see if I can do a review for it as well.

    That sounds very unique! I like pinball type games so I might try this.

    Looks like we may be getting delayed a day or two due to Apple's approval process. I'll definitely keep you guys posted when it releases.

    May 5th . . . Any word OR new ETA ?!! I would imagine that this one wants to get as much of a jump on Peggle as possible. Lots of folks probably looking for an early fix before BIG BOY shows up!! :)

    Unfortunately, no word yet. We all know how screwy Apple's process is but we're getting very close.

    Hope the timing works out for you guys - looks like you have a very interesting take on the peg genre!! Can't wait!! Good Luck!!!:D (This looks good enough that I'll pick it up, even if it shows the same day as Peggle!!)

    Rockchinko is out and available now!

    Looks like we hit our May 5th date! A bit later in the day than expected but we hit it. W00t!

    In related news, we already have an update coming out that adds one special, final level and has some performance boosts.
