Just got this one. It's addictive. It's impressive (to me at least) that it's still possible to create original matching games when there are so many already. Good job, developers!

I really like the simplicity of this one. It gets tough pretty quick though. I was happy to offer up a measly $0.99 to get rid of the ads.

Is there an issue with achievements? Sometimes it doesn't log me in automatically to GameCenter and my best scores haven't been recorded. Right now, it's giving me non-stop notifications to the achievements I've already unlocked.

Attaching a screenshot of what I'm seeing often. Not sure if it's just me, because other games are using GameCenter fine.

Hope this helps diagnose the issue!

Huh! That is weird but thanks for mentioning it and I'll look into it. I have an idea what it might be but I am not totally sure yet.

Also, hi all! I'm Eric, the developer. Let me know if you have any questions, comments or anything else to say!

After my post i'm off to spank the buy button, very well deserved !

Since it matters not to make a wrong move easily, i can understand why the sliding mechanic is as it is, but for my likings i'd wish me a sensitivity option.

Edit: yep, same Gamecenter issue here.

Edit again: thanks for "weloveyou"

Okay, well, I found the reason for the repeat Game Center notifications and submitted a fix for that. As for why it is not properly reporting sometimes, I am not sure if that is something on my end because I do not see it happening when I play, but at the very least repeat Game Center notifications should be no more once 1.0.2 hits.
