Ahsum Nimity - HD Gameplay Trailer (iPad 2/First few Minutes of Gameplay):

Mini - Preview:


Watch the HD Gameplay Trailer -> Then Download the Game -> You will never regret it!

The hole Presentation and the Gameplay itself are something really inspiring and even i haven`t played so far very much i can already see it`s potencial.

There is absolutly no Reason to don`t get the Game if you are into Puzzle Games. Don`t worry about the Trailer, it doesn`t spoil to much since it is just the Tutorial Missions.

Still can`t believe that Rodo - Intelligent Computing made that Gem Free...

Not that I would complain, but why have you made it free?

First and foremost, because we are collecting data for academic research. To reach statistical significance, we need many users quickly (we want ~1000 users to finish the game for the research). The faster we reach that, the faster we can draw conclusions (and possibly publish) about the results. At Rodo, our motto is "Mission over money" so we put our money where our mouth is and make the game free at least until we have collected enough data.

Secondly, as you may have noticed, the gameplay of Ahsum Nimity is unlike anything you know. We want to let people get to know it at no cost to prevent disappointed customers; after all, you can't expect what you've never seen before. Once we have a good number of AppStore reviews and possibly some reviews on blogs, we expect people to be able to know what they are buying so we feel it's safe to charge them money for it.

Thirdly, we have a strategic interest in making some noise between the ~150,000 AppStore apps. It's really difficult to get noticed, so launching for free is partly a marketing investment as well.

Hope that answers your question, let me know if you have more questions or remarks!

I know I'm probably missing something, but I just got up to the level that introduces flags, and I've got no idea what I'm doing with them. The goal is to make 60 points using only 10 tunnels but I can't seem to make any sense of using the flags. Any help?
