*** SO MANY WAYS TO PLAY! ***

Classic Panic - Tap the blocks to blast combinations off the screen before the pile of blocks reaches the red panic bar and topples over! But there's a limit of blocks you can remove each level... So watch out!
Score Panic - Ready for an endless Push Panic experience? This is your mode! Get the highest score possible until your pile of blocks reaches the top of the screen! Go go go!
Color Panic - Keep you eye on how many blocks of each color there are on your screen! If there are more than 8 blocks on the screen of the same color, you're game over!
Time Panic - Don't have a lot of time to play a game? Don't worry! You only get 180 seconds to try and get the highest score possible! Compete against the world to get to the top with Game Center!

*** COMPETE & GO FOR THE GOLD! ***

Game Center integration provides tons of achievements and allows for competition in real time on global leaderboards. You can also tweet your scores! Try to achieve olympic-like greatness by completing objectives and earning bronze, silver or gold medals!

*** POWER UP & SCORE COMBOS! ***

Randomly falling power-up blocks include chain-links to combine multiple color strings, point multipliers, time freezes, bombs, and a bar-raising block that gives you more wiggle room! Try to link as many colored blocks together as possible for massive combos and bonuses to earn numerous medals and outrank your friends!

Can you handle the onslaught of blocks without losing your cool?

VTX's comments:


Hi Guys,

I wanted to get your attention for the move of Push Panic from Appular to my own publishing account. Appular is quitting the publishing market and removing all their apps from the app store. So I had no other choice then to rerelease Push Panic under my own name. Otherwise Push Panic would just vanish from the app store.

Push Panic is now available under my own name and will be free the first couple of days, so that current customers have a chance to move to the rereleased version for free.

The bad news is that all level progress / GameCenter Leaderboard and Achievements are lost, there was no way to move those over to the new version. On the other hand: Now everyone has a new chance to set a nice rank on the 3 additional game modes.

Also all app store reviews are gone, which is a big shame. So I would like to ask you guys to leave a review. It'll be appreciated.

Awp, ads should be disabled for you, max 3 hours from now. Please let me know if this works.

I also found a bug that can cause ads to show even if you had a previous version installed. This is now fixed, an update is submitted to Apple.

For all people that have previously paid for the app (90%+ had it downloaded for free in the past) and get ads: Please PM me the code that is on the bottom of the info screen (Main Menu -> i button), and I'll disable the ads for you.

Push Panic sits on my oldest device, one that will soon be replaced, and I won't be able to move the app to my iPad instead. If I do, it will have ads. And if my earlier experience is any indications, it's a ridiculous amount of ads!

When I opened the app on my iPod Touch, a full-screen ad for Hyper Breaker Turbo popped up on the screen. I dismissed it and started a level. Almost immediately, an ad for the Sims Freeplay popped up, interrupting game play. I dismissed it and that was followed by another full-screen pop-up ad for some game involving what appeared to be a large elephant. I dismissed that, played a short bit more, on the same level, and another full-screen ad for Hyper Breaker Turbo popped up again! Needless to say, this time I quit the game. When you can't even play a level--not a game but an individual level--between ads, then that's ridiculous! That's holding my game hostage until I submit to the IAP demand or quit. That gets a game banished from my devices.

Haven't gotten any puzzle games in a while. Looks nice so I guess it's time to change that

I'll reply more in depth later today. For now ad settings are adjusted so that the in game ad will only show once a day per user.

Ok, some clarification:

There are 2 kinds of full screen banners:

1) The Hyper Breaker Turbo Ad. This ad should and will only show once! It will show when you visit the main menu screen for the 3th time. After that this banner is never shown again. It is just there to get some more people to know about our other game. Maybe this was a bit overkill because we also have the small banner at the bottom of the main menu, but then again: This is only shown once (not once a day, but once per install. So if you remove Push Panic and reinstall it, the Ad will again show only once).

2) The in-game ads. After completing a level (or when you're game over) there is a random chance that a banner could popup. That banner was NEVER intended to show when there is actual gameplay going on. However: if you are on a very slow internet connection, then it can happen that the banner loads very very slowly and popups when you're already playing a new level. This off course is totally unwanted and frustrating. Im going to patch this and resubmit a priority update to Apple ASAP. For the meantime I've reduced the number of banners users will see to max of 1 per day, until this problem is fixed.

3) Unfortunately it is possible that even users who had the previous Push Panic version installed, will still get ads after the upgrade to 1.5. This was obviously not intended, and i'm really banging my head against the wall because of this. It's caused by an error in my code. This will also be fixed in the next update. Meaning: If you had PP < 1.5 installed before you updated to PP 1.5, then ads will be disabled in PP 1.5.1. Hopefully this will now work for everyone.

For the people that did pay for Push Panic: Please mail me your itunes receipt and the code that is displayed on the bottom of the info screen (Main Menu -> purple i) and I'll remotely disable the in-game ads.

Again: I understand your reactions, and some of you will keep hating me for it, I'll have to live with that. Maybe I should have done things different, but this is the path I choose.

Anyway: I still hope that most of you won't give up on Push Panic. Speaking for myself: I reset the game and started a complete new play trough, really enjoying it

EDIT: I'm still getting multiple in game ads, I already contacted our ad provider about this. Could be that it takes a while before the changes I made will be live. Will update here when I have an answer.

got the game after finding it on this thread and I'm really liking it

I like how you just have to tap the individual squares as opposed to getting 3 of the same color from one place. Changes things up a bit.
