Hello fellow touchArcadians,

We are a brand new shiny game developer working on the iOS platform, for the moment. I'm here to share our soon to be released game with you called Onaji

Welcome to the world of Onaji: a fun puzzle game that combines color-matching and pachinko with strategy. This versatile game is ideal no matter what your skill level. So easy to play that ANYONE can do it; yet challenging enough to hold the attention the experienced gamer.

feelin' the economic crunch but want to make that dollar stretch? This game is built with custom art that will work on native resolutions for the iPod, iPad and Retina displays without having to purchase them separately!!

Game Features:
•Twenty levels
•Steadily increasing difficulty

Icon art: like or dislike?

Here's a glimpse of the icon for the appstore. What do you all think? with or without the frame?

I would like a promo code if possible.
BTW, it looks a lot like PRISM. It might play different, but it looks too much. Just the painting of the triangles are a little bit different. Like a Photoshop filter.
And the way triangles fall is not smooth enough. Improve the rotation algorithm (if using one) or add more frames to the animation.

For the icon: 1st) remove the TEXT!
2nd) something is not working with the colors. Blue and Green is not a nice choice.

I'll send more impressions with the code.

Do you have a link to this Prism game? We've done a fair amount of due diligence to ensure our game didn't look/play like another game on the market.

On another note, the video shows an older build so bare in mind that the shipping version of Onaji is significantly optimized compared to the video.

aaah, yeah...halfway through the development we found Trism. At first we were sweating over this thinking it was the same game! However, there's only so much you can visually do with triangles laid out in a grid.

That being said, our gameplay/art/music/core purpose is absolutely nothing like Trism.


We would be very grateful if you were to write up a review after you try it out:

Enjoy!
