    Hi all,

    Balloon Cut is pick up and go arcade game. It reminds of BUBBLE TROUBLE or PANG games but it is conceptually different. New version has special powers, save game and gems collecting. Update with global high scores and new balloon kinds is prepared and submitted to Apple too. Here is apple store link so feel free to try it.

    I would really appreciate if you leave any comment on iTunes or some review in contrary or just send me an e-mail. It would really mean to me if I have a feedback because I am developing the game constantly and more and more features are coming so any feedback is golden. I just want players to have some fun.

    Next version will contain background image, better graphics, online high scores, new balloons with special powers and more animation effects based on earlier discussions on this forum that were very helpful for me. Thanks again for those reviews... I'll continue to look forward not to disappoint your expectations.

    Thanks, have fun and don't forget to post your thoughts :D

    Just played this game, and really like it. It does remind me a lot like the computer game bubble trouble. This is just one of those fun casual games that i will always come back to and play. The few power-ups make the game more interesting as well. Congrats on this devs!!:D

    So you're playing an almost Buster Brothers like game as a spermatozoa! :eek:

    I also like how not only are these powerups hard earned but you get to decide do you cash in as soon as possible or save up for something bigger?

    Looks like an interesting game. I also like it when the devs look for meaningful feedback, and aren't just looking for a quick 5star review. I'm waiting to hear some more reviews from those that received the codes.

    I think I might be going against the intentional simple elegance of the game but I think I'd like some temporary powerups in the field that, for example, might have stuff that will lengthen or shorten your tail for a limited amount of time when run over. I also would love to see a little more variety in baddies (maybe triangles and squares that have some unique characteristics, like when a large square is killed it IMMEDIATELY explodes into 8 of the smallest incarnations, bypassing all of the normal steps in between).

    I would personally like to see different looking stages and enemies. And possibly more upgrades and maybe a 2 player Bluetooth mode. If you added a way to use the Bluetooth this game would sail up in the charts I think

    Thanks for advices LordGek. I thought about temporary power ups that will last for limited time. At the same time I implemented permanent power ups so... now I think of adding more special abilities in the bottom of the screen that could last for a short period of time that could also be bought by gems. There could be presented only 3 abilities in the bottom of the screen due to the lack of space, but when you pause the game those could be rearranged for example. What do you think?

    Next version 1.2.1 is submitted to the Apple store and it has new design. There are real balloons instead of those simple shaped balloons and also different species of them. For example, some of them can merge, some of them release two small balloons and stay almost the same radius. I liked the idea about the balloon that is killed immediately and broke into bunch of small balloons. I am looking forward to implement that too. There will be also some seeker balloons and those that do not move in straight direction.

    Thanks again for the response LordGek.

    Bluetooth mode sounds great. Now I need another device for testing... agrrr :) Two player mode could like competition of who can cut more balloons at the same stage. If someone looses life it could just lose some points and the aim is the 100 points for example. If you think of something more exciting please let me know... New enemies are prepared for version 1.2.1. Now I am preparing different backgrounds for better feeling. Thanks sportsfan791 and enjoy!!!

    I'd love to see a 2-player bluetooth mode, we've been having way too much fun playing Flight Control here at work!

    Overall, I'd say this is a fun game, and much better than any of the Pang clones I've played on the iPod Touch (although this game is more like a distant cousin to Pang...)

    Actually the game that this reminded me of when I first played it was Upsi Looper (where you draw circles around enemies, instead of trying to get them to cross your line/tail/whatever you want to call it!)

    Fun game, thanks again for the code!

    I was thinking if you took advantage of the OS 3.0 and added bluetooth mode, then you could coop with the other player and see how far you can get.
