Apple submission complete, waiting for review!

Oh yeah, and it'll be a free release. We're going the ad-supported route, with an implementation that is unobtrusive to players. In other words, no interstitials or anything else of that annoying sort.

Looks like a nicely themed LightUp! (Puzzle Maniak)

Will try it when it hits the app store.

Fascinating! The concept of CircuitBreaker began with a discussion about the sort of game you'd end up with if you mixed some of the ideas of a puzzle like Minesweeper with Bomberman, and after a bit of iteration, ended up becoming what you see in the posts above.

Doing a bit more research, looks like the Japanese name for LightUp is called Akari. We're all passing links about the game around the studio now. :]
