    This is clearly not a game for dieters! That video just made me hungry enough to start planning dinner at 11am.

    There comes a point where every game in the app store will be done. The trick is to make yours stand out. I like four things about this game -

    - The items surrounding the maze are interesting and varied, i.e. acorns and french fries.
    - Cartoons are always cute = win.
    - Items to collect are always fun and add to the challenge
    - Things are oversized

    It looks like an interesting game!

    Personally, I like the art style. I think hand-drawn environments make games so much cooler because you know a lot of time was put into it. It has a very arcade look to it which is awesome. It reminds me of a Space Ninja esque sort of set up which is great b/c I loved that game.Keep up the good work!

    The game looks interesting. It seems polished...but I can't tell exactly how the controls work. I like the look of it.

    This looks really smooth. Bright and cheerful colors, and I like how the score is displayed briefly, this seems to be implemented well. Also from what I can see from the video, the controls are smooth. I generally like tilt controls combined with touch controls if it suits the game, and in this case everything seems implemented logically. So in any case the video (and screenshots) give the potential cutomer a positive view on the game. :)

    first of all thanks for not giving codes just like that (posting them in the thread), so the true touch arcade members can get a chance to win one.

    now about bubblehead.

    1) i don't know if this is music from the game but if yes - it's awesome. really. sometimes music is just too different than the game itself, and makes it unplayable.

    2) great idea to combine accelerometer and multi-touch. on the video it works really nice, wonder what would i say after checking it.

    3) graphics are interesting, something more than just cartoon. bubblehead look rocks. :D

    4) but i'm curious about the most important thing... game life, gameplay or whatever you want to call it. is it keeping you with the game long enough? do you want to play it over and over again? so you can try to beat your scores even after one month?

    that's all for now. one more time: thanks for giving us a chance.
    peace, man.

    Wow. This game is like mixing a smile with staplers. VERY random!!

    1). It looks very polished
    2). Did you actually make this game?
    3). The music sounds almost as ridiculously awesome as sarah palins hair.
    4). Great controls, finally someone is using multi-touch
    5). I love the idea of the different worlds, chuck norris WILL love the computer geek world
    6). The unlimited generated levels, GENIUS!! it will never get old (then john mccain at least)
    7). Great video!
    8). Are you planning any future updates and if so what are you going to include?
    9).Can you customize the little bubble heads?
    10). can you add two player? you could do the light bike version of two-player, split-screen, or over wifi.
    11). Maybe you can add more modes? (survival mode, chase down another buble head mode, run away from another bubble head mode, ect.)
    12) i love the cartoony graphics, really fits this game well

    Overall, the game looks awesome, almost as awesome as me. ;)

    With the randomly generated levels I think there would be enough replay value. Just the fact that it's simple and challenging at the same time make it a potential winner. It also looks like the ideal type of game to pick up and play for a few minutes between things. As most others have mentioned, the graphics look really good. Clearly some time was spent in that department. The one thing that I think would be cool would be to have a "shadow" mode where in addition to just trying to get through the level, you have to outrun an evil bubblehead that's trailing you, or something to that effect. Probably doesn't seem like such a great idea when documented, but it sounded good in my head :rolleyes:

    This thing looks really polished. I love the cartoony look to it. From what i've seen it looks something like a drug induced flight through cartoon land...

    Judging from the video, the gameplay looks pretty solid, but you'd have to get your hands on it first to really comment on that.

    The think that shouts out at me the most are the cartoony graphics and addicting gameplay. Plus the music fits the video perfectly. Ill be checking this out. BTW, very well made video. It's kind of like a cross between rock n roll and papijump

    To me, the strongest point is all the different themes this game has, each planet seems to bring something entirely new and interesting. Each one nicely (hand) drawn and very polished. This is easily what I love most so far about Bubblehead.

    The control system seems natural and as I mentioned in the last thread, I love the comic book style working, such as ZAP!, when you hit an object. If that wasn't enough, with a random game mode, the replay value is very high. Who doesn't like randomly generated levels? Mix that with global leader boards and we now have the competitive factor on top of that.

    This clearly isn't one of those rushed titles that appear so commonly these days. The music is phenomenal and it's easy to tell a lot of love and hard work went into this game.

    Thanks for making this giveaway more meaninging.

    Comments I have abt bubblehead:

    1. The sound of bubblehead does not really match up. Compare the sounds to Dizzy bee and you can feel the difference.

    2. Each time the bubblehead hits something, there ought to be bruises...You can make the bubblehead have a bruise knock like bump or something to make it even cuter... when you knock on something, you ought to have bruises..try to make it realistic and fun.

    3. There ought to be some competition or something like burnball on facebook to make more people play the game.

    4. Will there be mrs bubblehead in the game? It is near valentines day :D

    5. The bubblehead really look like a mosquito with the sharp edge.. Maybe make it look like a bubble? I can't see differentiate is the nose and the head. :(

    6. Multiplayer will be nice. Like split screens or network play so I can know more gals before valentines day.
    This game will attract a lot of cute gals.

    It is a visually appealing game, with full use of the iPod accelerometer in a maze function.

    Looks like fun!

    First off I love the graphics. I'm ALWAYS a sucker for cartoon style graphics, as they rarely look bad. I often pull out LoZ: Wind Waker and think "Man these graphics are still good." But this point, as well as many others great suggestions, have been already drilled into the ground. So far the only suggestions I have (or questions) is about adding:

    1) A global leaderboard. This never gets old to me, I LOVE trying to top other people's scores.

    2) User created levels. I'm not sure how hard it would be, but if you could allow users to create their own levels using their own backgrounds and selecting what other objects they want on their then I doubt any day would go by that I wouldn't be playing/making levels.

    Anyways, those are my two suggestions. Like everyone else, another thanks for having a purpose behind who you give away promo codes to.
