App description: It looks so easy. Press a number, a ball falls to the bottom and you get more points and more life. Simple, huh?

But... there's the switches catching balls, flipping them, moving them, changing them, popping them... and your life is running out faster and faster... just when you think you can relax your life is in the red and that high scoring yellow ball gets caught by a switch - you didn't see that coming and is there enough time for another ball and which lane to put it and it's almost game over and, and, and...

Either a single or two player game, SwitchballHD is the perfect 10 minute blast for adults or kids. Simple? Yep! Easy? Are you kidding?!

I'm pleased as punch to say I got my first app onto iTunes! switchballHD by Drippy Cat Software Limited is out for the iPad and in the iTunes store. You can check out the youtube video here -


and the link to the game in the iTunes store is here:


It's an arcade game and easy as pie. You have a screen with 10 lanes, a life tube full of water which keeps draining and a series of colored balls. You touch a number at the top of a lane and a ball drops. It gets stopped by switches. Drop more balls to free up the balls. Once a ball gets to the bottom you get points and more water in your life tube. Once the water tube empties it's game over. That's it. Simple, huh? But that life tube drains faster and faster and just when you think you're doing well the ball you just dropped doesn't do what you thought it would - and the water in the life tube is turning red and the pressure is on. Maybe just maybe you can get another ball to the bottom for a bit more life but maybe it's just too late and ow! It's Game Over. Put your name on the high score table or start again and this time you will get to level 7 even if you have to thrash the iPad with a pointy stick.

Drop the ball!

Looks interesting. And fairly unique, which, makes it particularly hard to judge if this will be my type of thing. I'll try a lite if/when you release one.

Looks neat!

Like a puzzle version of Coin Dozer (or that tower thing in Freiderich!)

Thanks drelbs. I've never heard of Coin Dozer or that tower thing in Freiderich. Hang on - just googled Coin Dozer. 10 million plus downloads? Aw yes please! Compare away!
