Looks great! Good luck on the launch! I'd happily test a build, but It's completely optional.

Couple of questions:
Will we be able to "unlock" and play only specific minigame, like in Warioware inc for GBA ?
Will there be minigames for 2 players ?
Price of game ?

Looking forward to it

Do you have TestFlight for your iOS device? Currently that is the only way we can distribute it. If you have it send me a message and I will try and figure out something for you

There is a 'Mini-Game Mode' which has all 60 games available from the start for you to practice on each difficulty level. You can earn achievements by "mastering" a certain number of mini-games in this mode . A little crown icon appears on mini-games you have completed on all 4 difficulty levels.

Currently the game is only single player, but if there is enough interest we will be releasing free updates of mini-game packs. I can't see any reason not to consider 2-player mini-games in the future. I actually hadn't even considered that yet but what a fantastic idea! If we do develop 2-play mini-games I will be sure to mention you inspired that idea.

The game will be $0.99, with no extra In-App-Purchases.

Thanks for your interest!

Thank you for answers and kind words, even though you should mention Nintendo as inspiration , not me ( or not , because they might ask you to put in banners that advertise their games )
About 2 players games ( on same device or with GC ) I was thinking about something like this from Warioware:

But obviously there can be much more unique ideas for short 2 player games on touch displays

Well yeah haha. My sister and I used to play the WarioWare 2 player games like that. I remember there was one for the DS where each player would use a trigger button to play ping pong. It's definitely worth considering!
