I beta tested the game, and I'm really enjoying the down quest puzzle.

Great stuff - getting the iCade mobile onto this tonight. Only broken it out for Minter and Mikey Shorts so far.
Crikey - just tried out with touch controls and it's fantastic anyhow. Reminds me of Don't Look Back in spirit. Music and feel are tremendous. Looking forward to spending some more time later.

What is the game like?
The graphics are not my type but if the gameplay is good I'll consider.

The gameplay is good. Elements of lode runner, boulder dash and chuckie egg so far.

Thanks, yeah, we were unhappy with a virtual dpad, and trying to squeeze 6 distinct buttons (up, down, left, right, jump, action) on the screen really wasn't working either, so we adapted the swipe controls we used in RPG Quest - Minimae.

Oh yeah, as an Arab...my first reaction reading "Sheol" was "heh...wait till they find out about this in Lebanon", but I'm not like that. Not bothered by it.
We did wonder if that would be controversial at all, but decided to go with it. Sheol can be interpreted as the grave, or the pit, or even hell... for us, it seemed like a good name for IMPENDING DOOM.

When I was researching it, I didn't run into any different or extra special meaning for Sheol in Islam, did I miss something? If we're making a big blunder, I'd like to know
