App description: "... like an out-of-this-world mashup of billiards and Lunar Lander ..." - iFanzine

Bobby the Bullet Dude is on a mission to defend the planet from the Evil Green Ball Guys in this pick and and play arcade bouncer. But don't let the simple mechanics fool you, there's nothing easy about beating this game. Make your way through 65 distinct stages with 10 Game Center achievements and you and Bobby will be part of the elite few who can claim victory over the bouncing menaces.

The gameplay features the player playing as Bobby, a rocket powered, robotic bullet. The goal of the game is to find a green portal to take you to the next dimension. Green portals are normally unlocked by knocking all of the bouncing balls into the red "black hole" portals, though some levels are mazes with already unlocked portals. Various game elements exist to make your job of knocking balls into portals and navigating more fun and challenging!

Hello everyone. I'm pleased to announce a new game from Nooskewl called Bobby. It was called a mixture of billiards and lunar lander by one reviewer, but it stands in a class of its own I think. Comments and feedback are much appreciated. And to thank all of the TA users who have supported our other games in the past, here are some promo codes:

Thank you for 6HXEW3P3JA79

After playing the game, i've just made a 5 star review in U.S. AppStore

Unique kind of moon lander
This game comes with minimalistic graphics and fitting music and sound. It has a unique concept for the controls, you switch the controls by tapping on the lower or upper side of your display. But it's not easy, you have to practice these controls.
With a lot of different levels it is pure fun to play the game.
Game Center integration with achievements is another goody.

5 stars for this exceptionally game, congratulations to the developer.

A minor update for this game is propagating. Requirements for 2 star score has been dropped from 75% kills to 50%, and 50% to 25% for 1 star.

We're already working on another update, and it's nearly complete. It will have 10 additional levels, screen auto rotation support, and some more minor tweaks.

Oh, so you're the guy who needed a tutorial? I guess "bounce the balls into the portal" isn't clear enough =o).
