Frosties by Eye Cog - now looking for beta testers

Hi everyone,

Eye Cog is a small team of console game developers who also create iOS games in their spare time. We've just completed our new game, Frosties, and we're looking for beta testers!

Frosties is a puzzle game, a bit like Tic-Tac-Toe but smarter, and it looks like this:

In each turn, you can unfreeze one creature. If your move creates a line of unfrozen creatures stretching between two edges of the board, you score points. You win if your score is better than your opponent's when all the Frosties are freed.

You can play against AI or another player, via Game Center or on the same device. The game is a Universal app, meaning that it works with iPod, iPhone and iPad. You need iOS version 4.1 or newer.

We could really use your help! In order to sign up for beta test, follow this link to TestFlightApp.

TestFlightApp requires you to register your device. Here's how it works:
1. Click the link (http://bit.ly/hb1Exa)
2. If not already a member:
a. Register.
b. Open registration confirmation e-mail on your mobile device.
c. Click the "Login" button in the e-mail - this will open a webpage in Safari.
d. Click the "Register Device" button - this will leave Safari and you'll be asked to install TestFlight Access profile, which is necessary for the whole thing to work.
e. Click "Install" on the profile overview screen - this will install said profile.
f. Click "Done" - this will take you back to Safari and display available builds. There won't be any initially, since your device needs to be added manually by the developer using the info you've sent.
g. TestFlight will create a shortcut icon on your home screen.
3. Once we've received the data we need to include your device in our development profiles, we can generate a build and put it into TestFlight.
4. You will be notified about the new build via e-mail.
5. In order to give us feedback, just respond to the new build notification. Enter your feedback at the top of the mail.
6. Thanks!

Feel free to register more than one device.
The beta is open to everyone until we reach 30 testers or 50 devices (whichever comes first).

I've tested the game and I have to say it is very nice. It is a simple game but an interesting one. Music and Graphics are very enjoyable too. I would definitely recommend it as a casual game for anyone who likes the kind.

Good luck for the developers!
