Seven Stars 3D Full is FREE! (.99 > FREE)




This lovely marble rolling game is free for the first time since release a month ago. There are many games for iOS like this, but this is a nice pickup at no cost.

Recommended! Fine roller puzzle. Rather long levels with checkpoints (save), bonus elements to collect and 42 achievements. Good controls, runs smooth on iPhone 4.

Thx to devs & Kitty. Featured in my iPhone blog.

no calibration options pretty much makes this unplayable... (DOT DOT DOT)
You'd think by now developers would know that ball rolling games NEED calibration options. Oh well...

Your mileage may vary, as they say - personally, I found the controls quite good, especially for a game of this type, and had no trouble at all despite not having a calibration option.

Just an FYI. If you're running a iPod Touch 2G or some other older device, it doesn't look like it works. Crashes immediately (even after reboot).

At least, I assume it's the hardware, not sure if anyone with newer devices have experienced crashes.

I don't know how you manage to get by with your 2G, awp69.

Yeah, it sucks. But there still are enough games to keep me busy. My wife would have a cow if I upgraded. Gotta figure out somehow to sneak it in someday.

With that said, however, there's been some issues lately with devs not being upfront -- or at least not putting in their requirements section -- about whether it will work. That's something I get more frustrated with. If I had bought this, I wouldn't be a happy camper. Apple doesn't like to give a lot of refunds.

I think that it is pretty cool it is still running. I got my kid a 2G a couple of years back, and he used it so much that the battery eventually died... Not worth paying to get a new battery put in... He steals my wife's iPad now...

The level design in this one is ace. If dev should ever add custom calibration setting it would be even more of a looker.

I wish the camera button would be smart enough to change to the correct direction each time. It gets slightly annoying after a while.

I think it's great to be able to play this one for free. Hope it works out all right for the dev.
