    Just a quick heads up, I have just put Mighty Charms on sale.

    http://itunes.com/apps/mightycharms

    I have also submitted an v1.1 update and a Lite version to the App Store. It should hopefully be available in about a week.

    Enjoy the Easter Long weekend everyone. Now back to some Resident Evil 5 for me. RE5 is just totally rocking !!!

    Cheers

    Just watched the video, I like the look of the game. The diagonal matching sounds fun.

    What type of updates will be in the V1.1 version?

    Thanks,

    Rad

    Here are some of the updates I have made in v1.1
    - Added local daily high scores tracking
    - Added more reward points for matching 4 or more pieces
    - Fixed Online daily high scores tracking
    - Avoids displaying the restart/resume menu the 1st time in
    - Renamed "Global scores" to "Online scores"
    - Made Normal mode a little easier for the first 3 levels

    Version 1.1 contains improvements and fixes from the suggestion of TA members. If you guys have additional suggestions, feel free to let me know.

    Will there be any added sounds or animations when matching tiles.

    The game could also use some cute character to go along with the rainbow, like the unicorn in Peggle.

    I have all the match 3 games they seem to be my favorite game on the I-touch so far.

    How long will the sale go for?

    I will have to wait until I get another I-tunes card.

    Thanks,

    Rad

    There is sound when the pieces match, we'll have to crank it up a little when we do our next video.

    As for the sale, end of April for the moment. I was originally trying to time it for the release of the update and lite version.

    Thanks for the heads up. Checked it out and I think the graphics look good - especially the backgrounds.

    Well I find it a bit weird that they quoted Seishu on their description page... you usually don't quote random people from bulletin boards on app descriptions. It also makes it sound like he's a Touch Arcade reviewer (and maybe he is... but I don't think he is).

    Hi GatorDeb,

    My mistake, I put up the description page. I saw other apps quoting from boards in the past, so I thought it was normal. But since it doesn't sound like it's normal practice, I'll update the description in a few mins

    Cheers,
    Xyzl

    Done, I've submitted corrections to Apple. It should show up in iTunes over the next few hours.

    I haven't really seen it done before... you usually put there what big review sites say about you. Or it would have been fine if it said "XXXX, as posted at the Touch Arcade forums." The way it was it seemed like it came from a big reviewer at a big review site.

    Well you made my iTunes crash thank you very much :p

    What I found weird is the way it was mentioned.

    Paraphrased:

    "Great game!"
    Sheizu, Touch Arcade

    That to me sounds he's a reviewer from Touch Arcade.


    "Great game!"

    VERY different.

    I agree with you GatorDeb, seeing both examples side by side really makes it look like night and day. Man, I feel like total dweeb.

    I do like Seishu's quote and would like to keep it.. So I think I'll update the description to read more like your later example. Thanks for pointing it out GatorDeb.

    Do you guys see any problems with using Example 2 below? I'd like to keep the amount of words in the app description down if possible.

    Ex. 1)
    "Great game!"
    - Posted by XXXXXX at the Touch Arcade forums

    Ex. 2)
    "Great game!"
    - XXXXX, Touch Arcade Forums

    I bought this game today.

    I like the graphics of the game and the ability to have diagonal matches.

    I don't like the down beat sound effects, music track. The game needs more pep and the game play needs more power ups and variation to make it more interesting, like some of the other match 3 games listed below.

    I currently own:

    chocchocpop, Ballz!, SmileyPuzzle, Gemmed, JewelQuestII, Bejeweled2, Trism, BigBooty and many others.

    Second one sounds fine to me, as long as it mentions forums.

    Excellent news

    I purchased this game when it was first released. I'm glad to know that you are making normal mode a little easier for the first 3 levels and, more importantly, that you are adding more reward points for matching 4 or more pieces.

    I look forward to playing the new version.
