Ciganoid for Ipad

148 Apps Review of Ciganoid

There is also a thread on Ciganoid for the Iphone, and Ipod Touch over in that section

Touch Arcade thread on my other game Don't Die which was released a couple months ago, and also runs on Ipad.

Ciganoid is a game based on a clever no smoking ad found on the internet.

Use the intuitive controls to slide your paddle back and forth and destroy as many blocks as you can. Earn money by catching green blocks, and finishing levels.

Spend money on upgrades:
- Bigger ball
- Bigger paddle
- Extra life
- Lasers to shoot blocks
- A sheild

The higher level you reach the faster the ball moves, and the more money you earn.

-Open Feint Achievements
-Open Feint High Score Leaderboards
-Retro gaming with some Retina support in the menus
-Multitasking enabled

That is way cool, man. I smoked for ten years and right now I've been smoke free for around three months or so. Do you think it would've been cool to put facts about how harmful smoking is in the loading screen or in other spots of the game or do you think that would potentially turn off any gamers who happen to be smokers?

The question to be asked is did i make a anti smoking or pro smoking game? Everyone seems to have there own answer to this.

Well, speaking as someone who has the mentality of a person addicted to cigarettes, playing this game would make me want to smoke more. Even though the metaphor that the cigarette is killing the lungs with every hit is very well done, my eyes would only lock onto the cigarette and I'd start craving one. That's just me, though.
