App description: Charlie has always been a circus clown, just like his father, his father's father, and his father's father's father's great great grandfather.

Back in the old days being a clown was a cakewalk. But it takes more than pie in the face to entertain today's iPhone-wielding children. Luckily, Charlie has developed some explosive skills that impress everyone, including the most skeptical crowds.

From the award-winning creator of Axe in Face comes a fun, new, challenging game that will put all of your line drawing skills to the test.

Features:

* Using three different types of cannons, shoot Charlie around the arena and into a gigantic cupcake
* Humorous and easy-to-learn "connect the dots" game play
* Beautiful, colorful cartoon graphics
* 63 increasingly difficult shows to complete
* 19 amazing achievements to win
* 4 different challenges, including Time Challenge and One Life Challenge
* Play as Charlie's Uncle Bobo and knock the circus animals around the arena
* Use big cartoon bombs to move animals out of your way
* Compare your high score with your friends' using Game Center
* Optimized for both iPhone and iPad

Press Reviews:

A fun diversion with amusing graphics that provides a creative spin on connecting the dots. (3/4)
- Slide To Play

A time-swallowing, just-one-more-go-centric puzzler. Not one for sufferers of coulrophobia, mind. (4/5)
- Tap! Magazine

The game is a joy to play, incredibly addictive and has the kind of finishing effects you expect in a game from such developers. (8/10)

This game needs more love! Wow how great. Though I was about to throw my phone when I missed the gold medal for the first scene by 100 points for the 4th time in a row. Finally got it but man are they HARD to do!

I worry about the later levels because I sometimes like to think and ponder about puzzles. It seems that the faster you go the more you are rewarded and that might frustrate me. Cuz I will want to do both - get gold AND be careful.

It also seems that you either get a bonus for going fast or don't get penalized for being 0.01 sec too slow or 10 sec too slow. I get the same bonus at the end muffin if I am a millisecond off the time or made a mistake and ran into a roadblock or didn't complete the path thus tacking on more time (not losing lives - just not finishing the loop).

Overall though it does hook you and you do want to keep going with it. The fact that it is randomized and things pop up all over the place is awesome. Frustrations aside (they are after all my own quirks) this is a keeper and should be on everyone's to get list!

Thank you, @New England Games

I love to get feedback like that. It makes me reconsider what kind of game play mechanics that works and what doesn't.

BTW, I've release an update for the game. It is mostly minor bug fixes and optimizations. Also the size of the binary is now bellow the the infamous 20MB cap allowing players to download the game on a cellular network. If anybody experiences any problems with the new update feel free to contact me.

Thanks to all of you.

Thanks to everyone who downloaded Amazing Charlie. Until now the game has only gotten positive reviews both on the App Store and in the press.

I'm currently busy working on the next update for Axe in Face. But eventually I'll release an update for Amazing Charlie. Therefore, please let me know what kind of update you will prefer. Should there be more levels or would you prefer a new game mode?

hmm... Just wanted to say that I popped this on my iPad this morning, and it plays great on the larger screen...

I can't believe I forgot about this one (until I saw it in iTunes on a 'Customers Also Bought' list...) - it's a FANTASTIC game. =oD

I know this isn't the place to ask... but... any news on AIF2?
