    Greetings! I wanted to announce that my first iOS-game has been approved and is now available on the App Store. It is a completely rewritten port of my Android-game Jewels, greatly improved for the iDevices. If you happen to have tried the Android-version, I do recommend trying this as well, it really is a quite a lot better. Especially on an iPhone 4. :)

    The game is a simple yet highly polished match-3 game similar to the original Bewejeled and the Russian game Shariki. Now with Game Center support! EDIT: I cannot get the App info tag to work, here is a normal link:

    PS. If anybody could test it on an iPad and report to me, I'd be grateful. It should work (letterboxed and in 2x-mode), but I don't have the device and the iPad simulator doesn't want to run it as it is not an Universal-app, so I've been unable to test it there. UPDATE: It works fine. :)

    Thanks for the interest; if you like the game I'd really appreciate if you left a review at the iTunes.

    Thanks henrykong! :) Do you mean that it's better on iPhones than on Android-devices, since that's what I meant?

    In any case, it's been confirmed that the game works on iPad as well, as it should. :)

    On gphone, the touch is not always as precise
    Otherwise as far as I can remember
    Gameplay the same

    Will u be adding bonuses and explosions to spice up?

    An otherwise most playable game
    - been at it the better part of the hour last night
    Would have played longer except I want to respond to your question

    Well, it is the most requested feature to have powerups in the game, but I've been a bit hesitant for two reasons: (1) It would require reseting the global high scores, of which there is plenty. (2) I kinda like the game the way it is: very simple. Of course, were I to do a sequel or deluxe version etc. I would obviously add stuff to make it more interesting, but I'm still unsure about the sequel. I think I want to do something else; counting all versions I've been (re)making this game for the past three years. ::p (Luckily not full time ;))

    Anyway I have been planning to add another game mode, something with given time limit, probably a couple of minutes. :)

    Version 1.2 is nearly finished

    Just a heads up: the next version (v1.2) will add Game Center support and a new game mode! :) (Among other, smaller, things.)

    Just downloaded the game, it is very nice. Very smooth and nice gameplay.
    GameCenter will be really nice.
