    I found a nice app, Happy Face Popper. It's an action shooter where you control the mysterious character with the unique functionality of iPhone / iPod Touch.

    You can upgrade your shots to take on new challenges and destroy all bouncing targets to clear the stage.

    There are two modes of controlling: Flick or Tilt. Choose either control mode at the 'Option' screen in main menu.

    It looks really cute and it's only $0.99. If you're interested I can upload a demo video so you guys can let me know what you think.

    Thank you!! :)

    Hehe, sorry I was just joking around trying to impersonate an app developer who impersonates himself as a regular guy. Did I succeed? :p

    and sorry I don't have any video to upload. But I'm genuinely interested in this app and would love to know if anyone has tried this app. The main reason is it's developed by Hudson, who released Bomberman and Puzzloop. To me those 2 games look quite polished (I've only tried Puzzloop lite though).

    I guessed you were the developer at first but then I figured Hudson wouldn´t do such blatant advertising as smaller "one-guy-in-a-dark-lonely-room-making-an-app-developers" tend to do on these forums. Anyway I still want to see the game in action.

    Thanks for the youtube link. The gameplay is extremely similar to the arcade classic Pang. Looks like it could be fun, but imagine it would get a bit boring quite quickly unless the levels get a lot more complex as you progress.

    It's actually quite terrible.

    it's basically a Super Pang Bros. (Super Buster Bros) clone.

    The sfx for shooting are REALLY harsh.
    While playing a game you can only pause (no way to exit to the title screen)
    Once you pick up a power up you keep it until you find another or die.

    I'm sure they can, I'm just surprised that hudson put this out. It looks like the work of a dev just starting out. It doesn't have near the polish of their other games. But I suppose it costing only a dollar should be a warning
