    Hands on with Bailout Bonanza on iPhone

    Good suggestions too. We'll get the "sensitivity slider" in there.

    Crossing fingers that this releases today or tomorrow.

    Also, news on our charity pledge:

    http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/03/prweb2201254.htm

    As part of the launch of Bailout Bonanza, PlayScreen is pledging to donate 5% of each sale to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, providing food for people in need. With "Bailout Bonanza" gamers can channel their frustration over bailout abuse into helping the people hit hardest by this economic crisis.

    It was the right thing to do.

    Note to developers: You CAN'T mention this (charity) in a product description. It is against a rule.

    But it's good to see devs donating to causes other than their own.;)

    I'm picking this up for sure, plus I like the charity ties with the Bay Area.

    We were told to "stay tuned" on the release. Crossing fingers.

    I've made it to level 20 with swipe, 12 with tilt. I still prefer tilt control.
