Zen Sand - Relaxing Particle Puzzler (by Polygon Play) [Universal] Beta Testers Wante

I'm finalising my next indie game Zen Sand. It's my first serious effort after Lander Hero (which is FREE for a few days right now).

Zen Sand is a serene particle puzzler with a Zen-like atmosphere. The idea of the game is to strategically place bamboo stalks to guide the flowing sand into the vases. You must figure out the best route and sometimes colour or crush the sand on the way. I aim to release it in a few months.

I'm looking for beta testers and will post details about it soon.

The official site:

Features
- 80 brain teasing levels
- Relaxing atmosphere
- Universal
- Retina artwork for all devices

Here are the first screenshots. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know

Thanks guys! Nice to hear you like the screenshots! I'm ready to start recruiting. If you'd like to take part in the beta testing, you can apply using the following link:

Zen Sand supports all devices from iPhone 3GS to iPad 4. It's CPU intensive game, but there is a setting for particle count to make it smooth on any device. Please let me know if you notice any performance problems. It would be awesome if someone with a stylus and someone with iPad 4 could try it out!

I'm looking for all kinds of feedback. Here are some general questions you could answer:

1. What did you like?
2. How many levels did you play?
3. What you didn't like?
4. Are some levels too difficult?
4. Does it make any sense on a small screen (iPhone/iPod) without stylus?
5. You are welcome to present your ideas and wishes as well

You can reply here so we can have some discussion going or you can send me a PM.

Gameplay footage coming soon...
