    Hi All,

    I'd like to introduce you all to Bomboozle the first iPhone/iPod Touch app from us at Megadev!

    Check out the video at http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=HZuH2XEufLo

    To see it in the iTunes App Store click here

    It's a collapse style puzzler based on our popular flash game. The game has been on the app store for a little while and we're finding it pretty hard to promote so I'll be offering some free promotion codes in this thread over the next few days (just trying to think of a fun way to do that :) ).

    The iPhone version is enhanced from the flash game with great new graphics and animation, also with a changing background and time-of-day based on highscores - so your chums can tell at a glance how good you are!

    At Megadev we're a team of 4 ex-games industry professionals setting out on our own :-S with a goal to produce polished, quality titles that are fun to play and good value!

    So let me know what you guys think! Stay tuned for the free promo codes.

    1. the last line of his post says he will be giving out some promo codes

    2. Please don't ask developers to give out codes, if they feel like it's necessary or want to give them out, they'll make the decision
    :)

    Promo code giveaway!

    Cheers, yes Rolando does look nice. I'm hopeful that we can become recognised as a faux "first party" developer after we get a few decent games out in the same way that ngmoco are trying to. Separating quality from shovelware is really hard for apple consumers at the moment, so it's all really on getting to know developers you can trust ;-)

    Anyway... I'll be giving away 15 promo codes in total in batches of 5. I'll post the first 5 here as a free for all! As soon as you've used one, I'd be grateful if you'd post so others know before they try it.

    1. claimed.
    2. claimed.
    3. claimed.
    4. claimed.
    5. claimed.

    I'll dream up some way of giving the next 5 away for tomorrow!

    LOL, yep the irony isn't lost on me either.

    Monopoly: I PM'ed you a code anyway as a good will gesture ;-)

    I'd be interested to here peoples comments of the game... especially if the use of the 2.1 SDK bothers anybody (I know a lot of games still use the 2.0 sdk).

    It's pretty late here in the UK now, but more free codes tomorrow!

    Wow, now that's a way to handle your PR :)

    Congrats on the new game. I havent had time to play it and my touch is dead right now, but it looks very promising and I'll be sure to get back to you with my thoughts. Thanks again!

    This. Game. Is. Incredible. I love the art style, graphics are wonderful. Gameplay is awesome. Anyone who did not get a promo code needs to give this game the credit it deserves. This is better than 50% of the apps in theyop 100 right now. It's one of the best matching color games, and I can already see myself playing this more than trism. Excellent work and thank you for the promo code of this little gem. I am not kidding, do yourself a favor and pick this up, you will not regret it at all
