Every time you update the game, I'll update my review. Love it.

Congratulations on TA front page article. It should generate some well-deserved interest.

@WilliamG - this was intentional. If you put one down by accident it'll stay until you beat the level or until it's traveled by a current.

thanks so much guys for the great reviews!

@caltab - I clearly need to get better with cross promoting my apps within my own apps.

This is a decent game but I'm sorry to say it is definitely not worth the 3.99. I think .99-1.99 is fair for a game like this. It's a one trick pony, pick up and play for a few minutes here and there, not really engaging. For 3.99 I expect some content.

Also! Halcyon 1.2 Update just hit the app store. With it comes a much smoother and better difficulty curve.

I think that sounded harsher than I meant it to be. It really is a neat game and I have been playing it a bunch, the price is really the only complaint I have about it. If it was only $1.99 then I would say it is a 5 star game. I think I've been spoiled by the vast quantities of dirt cheap games available in the app store. I didn't mean to insult you or your work in any way and if I did, I'm sorry. It's certainly better than any game I could ever create.

@grimstone don't worry about it! I didn't take offense. I certainly understand the stresses of being cash strapped for games. And you're certainly correct that there's a ton of low priced competition. Lowering the price or having sales of some sort is definitely something that we've considered
