I also like buzzle, but not buzzle runner, because that would look like an endless runner at first glance.

I don't like "make way" or any other generic titles with "bees" in them because it'd be a pain to find in search results.. Now apple organises search list results with the most popular games first, even if the title is very different. It's bizarre. Exact matches should surpass them, but nope.

So yeah, stick to something unique, Buzzle is great, or atleast a slight variation like buzzle'd or puzzled buzzle.. You get the picture.

Gameplay sounds interesting, I like puzzlers so ill probably pick this up, depending on the final art style choice, as art style and polish is very important for me, ah I feel so superficial, but it's true. >.<

Thank you guys! You are very helpful. I kind of wish I knew and got involved in this forum earlier. It looks like Buzzle is the favorite. So that will probably be it. But before I settle, what do you guys think of: "Buzzle: Make Way!"
My brother suggested this and I though it may have some merits. First the Buzzle part is obvious as it's a more unique nice name that will be easier to google. And then the "Make Way!" part will help explain to people what the game is about. What are your guys thoughts on that?


@JCho133: I'm going to try and prepare a video over the course of next week and share it here. Overall the gameplay is more on the fast pace side. The whole map moves to the left at a steady rate adding a sense of urgency to your actions. As a player, you spend most of the time swiping tiles (bejeweled style) clearing a path for Charlie (the bee you are trying to help). Additionally, there are many powerups and special tiles that add some spice to the game. (i.e. Fire Tiles are obstacles that can be used to clear other obstacles; Lava Tiles have to be confined before they spread to the entire map; Abilities like Flatten allow you to level out entire sections of tiles/obstacles etc. )

@NOEN: Sounds like you are right. Everybody loves Buzzle. Let me know your thoughts on "Buzzle: Make Way!"

@Sonzberry: The game is a few months a way. Art is the main thing holding it back. Our colleague just discovered his father has cancer, and than really screwed up everyone. Once we get back on track, the focus will be on polish.

Woah so is it a match 3? Or are you just moving the objects out of the way? Either way it sounds pretty darn cool. I look forward to the vid

Hey guys,

I made a video of the game and I shared it here:
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...81#post3078281

@JCho133 - The idea started with Match 3 originally... but as we kept working we stirred more and more away from it. Just based on feedback and what people where having fun with. Maybe for Buzzle 2, we'll revisit the topic.

Thanks for choosing the name guys!

Andrei
