App description: Fun. Addictive. Challenging. These and many more are just some of the words someone somewhere sometime might say about Insecticide, probably.

Insecticide actually does something new and different with the "Match-3" genre. Greater freedom of movement makes for a faster paced more intense game.
5 different game modes, including multiplayer provide the right style of game to suit your playing style (or lack of).

Game Centre Leaderboards provide an addictive worldwide challenge in the race to get to the number one spot and Achievements reward you as you try to get there.

Fifty levels of non-stop action in classic challenge mode.

Endurance mode lets you play for as long as you can keep the time limit going.

Three against the clock targets in time trial mode.

Endless gameplay to practice and develop your strategies in, funnily enough, endless mode.

Local Multiplayer with power-ups and an in-game taunting system to distract your opponent.

Unified Game Center global leaderboards and achievements.

Universal app optimized for each system.

Retina display graphics on iPhone 4 and latest iPod Touch devices.

Twitter and Facebook support.

MeltingPoint's comments:


A refreshing new take on the classic “Match 3” style of game, Insecticide has a greater freedom of movement that makes it a frantic more exciting game and allows a new type of strategy to be used in pursuit of that perfect high score.

Don’t think that extra freedom will make things easy for you though, Insecticide has gameplay that is both fun and challenging, whether you're aiming to be top of the leaderboard or battling against a friend in multiplayer.

Classic, Time Attack, Head-to-head Multiplayer and Endless game modes provide a challenge for every gaming occasion. From a quick couple of minutes to, well, as long as you'd like to play.

Just played single player Classic and my biggest whine is that there is no sort of final score summary page. Other than checking in on my GC best scores, I have no clue in-game what score I just got and therefore will have no idea if that highscore in GC is my latest game or from an earlier play.

I'd like to see both my best score in a given mode (in-game or at end of game) and my final score (end of game).

Thanks for the suggestion and I guarantee you it will be in the next update.

Thing is I have already programmed most of the code for the local scores but decided to leave it out because I, rather stupidly, thought people would rather use Game Center. Must have been a day when I'd only had three gallons of coffee instead of my usual five
