iSquares - Square Collecting & Dodging Game

Hi all!

NOW FREE!

iTunes Store Link: http://bit.ly/isquares

This is my first game submission to the iOS app store. I would love any constructive feedback or comments of any sort! (Try to) be nice, as it's my very first iOS game

iSquares is very simple, and super addicting -- you're the spinning black square in the center. Use your finger to drag it (you can drag from anywhere on the screen). The goal is to collect as many black squares as possible, while dodging all red squares. If you play for long enough, you will see red circles (powerdowns), and black circles (powerups) which you can also collect. There are several, such as slow motion, invincibility, multipliers, and more!

I have just released version 1.1 of iSquares, which features Game Center Leaderboard integration, an all-new control mechanism for the game, additional powerups and powerdowns, and more:

• In-App Purchases for additional Power-Ups and more!
• New animations!
• New high scores notification
• Two-finger tap to pause
• Quick-Tap through game over screen
• New graphics, loading screen, splash screen

Version 1.2 is currently in review, and it will feature high resolution Retina Display graphics! Of course this update will be free to existing users.

This looks great, I love (and still have) Squares 2, which seems to have been removed from the App Store. This looks like a great successor, although since I already have Squares 2, I'm not too sure what this has to offer beyond that. If I ever get a retina display, I'll definitely pick it up for that alone. Maybe add the iTunes info here so we can see the price? Also, universal support would be another reason to buy, as this type of game is great on the iPad.

Whoops! Added the link in! It's $0.99.

This is very similar to squares2, and it was my inspiration. I have added some powerups and powerdowns that the original did not have, such as multipliers and shields.

I am debating adding additional levels of difficulty in a future version.
