    Just a note to let you know that if you've wondered about Bang!, we've got a free version out called BangLite! The basic gameplay mechanic is the same---lots of bombs to blow up---but it plays in one continuous game instead of multiple missions. It also includes some elements that haven't made their way into the paid version, like anvils and crates. (A major update to Bang! including these features and a lot more are on the way.)

    To celebrate the release, and to whet your appetite for the coming Bang! update, we're going to give away $25 a day in iTunes Gift Certificates plus a bunch of download codes for the full version of Bang! Watch this thread for details.

    As developers, we're always looking for feedback. Bang! is our first game, and we want to do more. Let us know what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong.

    Thanks,

    The Guys at Portable Hole

    I dunno about you all, but my taps are occassionally unresponsive, and it kinda makes it really tough to play in times with lots of bombs...I tapped directly on some a couple times and it refused to explode.

    Regarding the tap technique:

    The taps on the small bombs in particular have to be pretty precise. I've experienced the same feeling, but it happens less and less with practice. We've tested pretty thoroughly and I'm confident the taps register---the hit area is just small, and if part of your finger falls outside it first, that's where the tap will register.

    Also, make sure you're tapping with the pad of your finger and not with your fingernail---the touchscreen registers better that way.

    Two observations-

    1) no multi-tap

    2) skips from 980000 to 1000000 points. (seems to always happen)

    I meant it is impossible to get to 990000. I looked at the sides while playing, and my score always seems to skip around there. I've gotten to 1 million 5 times, and it always seemed to have that jump.
