It's an addictive and funny game, but the GameCenter integration is quite mandatory to expand the fun of the game itself. Please add it!

Might give this a go. Not bothered by Game Centre integration, doesnt detract from the game itself.

Capronissimo71, I will add GC integration, hopefully soon...

psj3809, thanks, I'd appreciate your opinion on the game (or any feedback).

Default Game Impressions

This is quite a nice puzzler. Has a good learning curve. The flow of the game is quite nice

I have only played classic, and it is so nice not having a stupid timer. Quite challenging as you rise in levels. Haven't tried the arcade style yet, as I generally hate timed games.

Recommended for people who enjoy unusual matching type games that are actually puzzles, and who don't like timers. Graphics are good, UI is minimalistic, tutorial is easy to understand.

I would like to know what the tiny diamonds in the play field are for?

Been playing this for the past few hours.

Very good puzzle game, logic based. Sublime....

Game Center a must, although I don't think score is as important as level, unless score is explained as to how to maximize. Got to level 32 so far.

pluto6, thanks for your positive feedback!

Tiny diamonds are the "Show Next" markers, which forecast the incoming tiles (their color & position) in the next move. I'm sorry I didn't describe them enough in the update text or within the game.

The "Show Next" markers can be switched on/off in Options, so you may play the game without them in a more casual way, or with them if you prefer some strategic thinking (useful above level 30).

Game Center support is in development.

You get score points from the unused moves, as it is shown on the screen in between levels. To get a higher score, complete each level in as few moves as possible.

As for the "rapid" mode, it is not timed. The timed game mode (or maybe even a separate app) is on the roadmap, but the rapid mode features a different gameplay mechanics - you cannot slide/move the tiles, you can only click the existing clusters. Besides that, there are less colors involved (4 instead of 6). Overall, it's a different, more "instant" playing experince, it's still turn-based, but it's true that luck plays a greater factor in the rapid mode.

I have many new features and levels in development; in the meantime, have fun playing Voro :-)

Glad to see the game is changing and evolving around its original core. Keep up the good work!

Hi I have hit level 40 in both...what's next? I've responded to the request after level forty but haven't noticed a change in the game.

Love it like 'skittles' candy can't stop...great game

coyotero, an update with some more levels (and features - basic Game Center support and "color bombs") is coming very soon. Please add about a week to "very soon", for the App Store review process.
