    Just picked up Kraut after hearing about it at TouchArcade, but could not find any reviews or posts. :confused:

    Review: It's wonderful!

    :p

    I posted a review at the app store but the short and sweet of it is we were wowed over by the polish and unique aspect to this overdone matching genre. The dev video in the toucharcade article does a good job of showing what a fine game, Kraut is.

    Well worth $1.99USD and a nice break from killing things in Alien Mangle.:D

    Best,
    tony

    D.sync,
    Yeah I missed it the first time around, but the screen shot in the toucharcade article actually links to the video

    another freakin' MATCHING GAME?!?! it's getting almost as bad as the fart apps.

    um, doesn't "sweet flower match puzzle" sound a little strange?

    'Sour fart match puzzle' would sound funnier, but less of an apt description :D

    I hear you about the matching games, but I find them relaxing for casual pick up play on the train without getting odd stares like when playing a killing blood splatter app or fidgety-elbow-passengers accelerometer racer.

    Marple, Crossbones and IQ Boost were mashing my mind so I needed a break.
    Booty Blocks or Smiles looked promising, but Kraut, featured here, looked unique and quirky.

    I was taken by the dev video on how polished it looks and sounds and it really is sweet enough for all ages. Kraut was a great buy to complement Alphabetic which I also got to relax the brain.

    It's great to support small devs and good games to boot.

    Plus the missus approves! ;)

    one Kraut Promo code to giveaway

    Good news:

    I got a promo code from the dev of Kraut to giveaway.
    (I have no affiliation just a fan and want to see devs rewarded for good work)

    The first person to pm me with both the name of the player and their highscore (number) in the arcade mode in the dev video wins the promo code.

    Hint: arn posted the dev video link in this thread.

    Got it?

    Just the name and number, simple.

    I'll post the winner, tomorrow.

    Good luck and thanks for your interest

    It is indeed a nice game. I have a slight problem with the name though.... WHy on earth is it called Kraut (which is an insulting word in english used of German people....)

    codes gone.

    Thanks for playing, I gave out the two codes I got.

    Congratulations to pante and snoderlye.

    You folks are fast.

    Even if you didn't get a code, I think it's still worth it at $1.99

    Again, no connection with the dev, just a fan.

    Shame they didn't change the name though. I see it's listed as K***t in the app store.

    as far as I know it should be a vegetable that germans eat a lot (also in northern italy, but has a different name).

    Just downloaded and played this. It's a very well done game, certainly worth getting for free.

    Have a feeling, as others have mentioned, that the name (for native English speakers) may be holding it back.
