    SCRAP! was released today but I can't find anything about its gameplay, such as how pieces are rotated and placed on the board (if in the slot or when it is over the board).

    This reminds me a Palm game named Swizzle that I liked to play to kill some free time. In Swizzle the pieces are rotated in the slot making the gameplay a lot easier.

    A title with a similar gameplay is BombBlocks but the main problem with this game, apart from being a bit slow, is that the finger gets in the way making it hard to play.

    It's $4.99 right now so... It better know something about it first.

    Update: I'll purchase it blindly... Man I can't control myself. :mad:

    Update: First impression:

    ABOUT GAMEPLAY

    The goal is to fill a line with tiles (like in Tetris) in one of the 4 sides of the board indicated by a progress bar (once the progress bar is filled the piece goes to the stack). Each time you make a line(s) the side changes randomly.


    PROS
    - Nice graphics
    - Nice gameplay
    - Music is OK (can be repetitive)


    CONS
    - One game mode
    - No options
    - No tile sound when e.g. placed over the board
    - No Undo (useful since you can place a tile by mistake due the touch interface)
    - No way to force a tile to be placed on the stack (you have to wait for the progress bar)
    - No help at all (I still don't know what it takes to change a level)
    - No special tiles
    - No online high score


    FINAL WORD

    If you like puzzles and enjoy Tetris than this game may be worth.

    Right now $4.99 seems to be a bit high for a game that is not so polished due the CONS above.

    Things like Undo, game modes, sounds and help are essential for such price tag.

    I've been looking at this game all day (while not playing Slotz), so I'm really interested in hearing what you have to say about it.

    SCRAP Play Findings

    Hey I just downloaded this too. The company website: www.splitcode.com was just up with instructions I seen but then got a DNS issue. I hope it will be up soon. I did find the game pieces come up in the middle of the screen and tap the screen to turn the pieces around. And I guessed to move the pieces to where that green line is and surprising I completed a line and it disappeared! So ya, its cool cause the line kept going to all 4 sides of the game.

    This is a cool puzzle game!

    Waiting to Play SCRAP!?

    Hello all,

    I must sincerely apologize for the web site (Splitcode.com) not being available yet.

    It was our hope to have EVERYTHING up and running, without a hitch. But then, what fun would no challenge be?

    In the meantime; I hope that you will find this imaged version of the play manual helpful. We’ll have the site up and running soon, with a video on How To Play soon after.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum!

    It's always nice to have the game's developer here.

    Can you tell us what are the plans for a future update?

    The game is really nice and when we start it it's hard to stop until it's over.

    Well Carlos, my friend.

    I would give everything I have to pin down an exact time and date for an update. But I would rather tell you “we’re working on it right now”, than “very soon”.

    We have some great new original music that is in the works. There are plans for an online High Score system. We’ve even started plotting out a plan of attack for a head to head!

    In the meantime; I put together a quick little video on how to play SCRAP!

    best of luck,
