Another match 3 for the App Store?
Gotta love them though. I'm a real sucker for match 3's so I'll be getting this.

Was skeptical about this going on the video, but it's actually a very, very good match game. And yes, it actually feels fresh and offers something new in some subtle ways. Recommended.

Is it kosher to ask what people find appealing about this but not my game with similar mechanics? If not I'll shut my mouth :P

I probably wouldn't do it in this thread but I would think general discussions would be a better place for it. From a purely visually stand point more people are going to be attracted to colorful characters and cupcakes than buttons. I am an older gamer and think your game looks fun though.

On topic, I like this game but I am not completely happy with the drawing mechanics. There have been several times on big chains where I get to the last cup cake and then it doesn't register. It would be nice if it locked your line in place as you drew.

I noticed that as well, but thought it might be due to me not being familiar enough with the game mechanics. It isn't really explained what the rules are for a line to count; does the speed matter? What about a cupcake disappearing off screen? How well "aligned" do the cupcakes need to be? I'm still not completely certain after a number of playthroughs.

It appears that the cupcakes have to be tangent for at least some pixels and I noticed that you have to be pretty quick especially at higher speeds to get large combos.

Anyway, I really like this, got met hooked.Great spin for a match 3 and great graphics also.

I recommend it .

Yeah found that you have to be really quick to score the big ones. The best combo I made was with 10 or 11 candies while in freeze mode.
