"Kids Will Love the Ultra Cute Characters in Adorables" Pad Gadget

The Adorables have the greatest job ever they create the magical Aurora Borealis. But, they have a problem Theyve lost their ability to fly! The night skies have been empty for months but with the invention of the Aurora Beam hope has been rekindled. However, they cannot do it alone. They need someone to operate the beam they need you!

The Adorables follows the exploits of five magical creatures responsible for the incredible natural phenomenon known as the Aurora Borealis. Each Adorable has their own distinct personality, but they all share a common goal to make the world a more beautiful place.

Using Pachinko style gameplay similar to that of Peggle, youll control your Adorable by firing it up, instead of down through the level, directly influencing its path with the Aurora Beam and tilt after-touch. Hit all the pins in the level three times, to create an Aurora Borealis of green, orange and purple. With a variety of collectables and mechanisms such as warps and sticky walls, each land you explore offers challenge and addictive fun.

FEATURES

Five adorable characters to play as - Mu, Ruffle, Syd, Ping & Sneaker
Arts & crafts-style graphics with a manga-inspired twist

I'm intrigued by this too, and would also like to hear from anyone who's given this a shot already. Anyone?

Seems to be funded by adverts, they appear at the top of the screen between each level. Gameplay is ok, tilting an iPad is a faff, I imagine this is better on a phone.

I have seen no IAP but also no option to buy out of adverts.

Games that will never leave my iPad : Great Big Wargame, Battle Academy, Battle of the Bulge, Ravenmark and Hunters 2.

Couldn't find any ads here on iPad 4.

Interesting game mechanics. Two controls at the same time: That beam (touch, slide) and tilt. Needs some time to get the hang of it and yes, maybe better suited for small iOS devices (anyway I could solve the first ten levels on iPad with three stars and some rainbows). Play against the time.

Love the dreamy atmosphere. Really nice graphics (style) and animations. Recommended so far.

Fun game with some nice game mechanics that may seem a little odd at first. But if you like games like Peggle, no reason not to try this. Other than the ads, haven't come across any IAPs. Would have gladly paid for this.

Hiya, I'm from Thumbstar. We're having a problem with the IAPs at them moment so it's not possible to unlock the later worlds as yet in iOS until we get that fixed. We are working on it, of course and it should be fixed really soon.

We're really glad to hear you're enjoying the game though so far! As the worlds progress more mechanics get introduced, some make getting the pins more challenging some are quite helpful There's quite a different feel to each world too. I feel like I'm rubbing it in a bit but I promise we'll get the IAP sorted asap!

We're going to be running a competition on twitter to win some original artwork so keep an eye out for it @thumbstar. Also I'll make sure to update our facebook page with any news on getting the IAPs fixed. We're over at www.fb.com/theadorables... unsurprisingly!

So the worlds after the first one are IAPs? Not that I mind. Just curious.
