    Not too shabby of a game. Add Game Center for achievements for a bit more lasting appeal... Also why is it necessary to have constant contact with the screen? It would be better IMHO if you could just play using tilt only while not touching the screen at all. I keep inadvertently letting go and having to restart the level. Kinda annoying, plus the finger blocks some of your view...

    The game is so addicting. But the constant touching the screen is not good.

    The game is good. It's got tons of levels and is pretty difficult by the end. No offense Chocolate. but c'mon...
     
  6. This reminds me of that other square-based platform game whose name I can't remember.

    I realize it could be a good game, but you don't think it's weird seeing colored squares described as graphical showcases for retina display?

    I'll still try the game despite the visuals, but sounds like it has some control issues.

    Constant screen touching really doesn't make any sense.
    And the first 20 (round about) levels feel like cheap tutorial levels, way too easy. But this is still the grounding for a good game. Somehow it's fun to play.

    i'll admit it. i immediately thought 'pass' when i set my eyes on the screenshots. ive now downloaded because of doodlejumper's comment, and my thoughts will come later

    wow!
    this is surprisingly good! the graphics are a bit of a letdown.
    also, i dont get why i should have to continuously keep my finger on the screen to play the game!

    Yes, but gameplay itself is pretty cool, right?

    yeah, it is pretty cool, a great free game. i wouldnt have paid for this though, purley based on the fact it's just so simplistic. i mean even FASTAR at least tried to make the game look and feel *REALLY* polished, yknow?
    meh. i just dont like the concept

    The beginning levels are super easy, but it's oddly addictive. Even on the easy levels, it's tough to put down for some reason.

    I'm liking it so far.

    Graphics

    Yeah the graphics are absolutely terrible.

    I used GameSalad to make this game. I tried adding some graphics while it was still development, but it brought down the FPS down by 15 frames or so. I wanted to make the game smoother rather than graphically appealing.

    The good news is that GameSalad is going to release an update to the software that supposedly has great performance changes. SO when the update comes, I'm planning on updating the game with about 10 levels and GRAPHICS :D

    Glad to see you guys are liking the gameplay, sit tight and you'll see some artwork :]

    I actually like the graphics. It's very rare to see minimalism that's legitimately minimal.

    Gotta agree - the graphics are strangely appealing!

    I bought this and have really enjoyed it since then. Gameplay is very clever!

    Looking forward to an update with more levels!

    QS :D
