App description: Push Panic is refreshed! Expect the classic, exciting and colorful puzzle game that introduced four frantically fun game modes and fast-paced gameplay on iOS back in 2010!

Tap the blocks to blast combinations off the screen before the pile of blocks reaches the red panic bar and topples over! Push Panic includes 75 intense levels. Each of the four exhilarating game modes introduces explosive new challenges!

*** WHAT DO THE CRITICS THINK OF PUSH PANIC? ***

"Rated as Top 25 Game of 2010 By MetaCritic!"

"Snap it up while you can." -Destructoid.com

"4/4, Perfect Score.....A Must Have!" -SlideToPlay.com

"Push Panic may have single handedly changed my mind on casual games....I knew I was hooked on the game when I realised I had been playing it for 3 hours straight." - IntoMobile.com

"Straightforward colour-matching mechanics, challenging modes, and excellent replay value make Push Panic highly recommended!" 8/10, Silver Award- Tracy Erickson, PocketGamer.co.uk

"Push Panic a title that thoroughly deserves great fortune and success. 4/5 ADDICTIVE." - Jennifer Allen, 148Apps.com

"Kostjens has somehow managed to achieve the impossible with this colourful and frenetic box tapping challenge by injecting new life into the oversubscribed match-three puzzle market." 8/10 - QualityIndex.com

*** SO MANY WAYS TO PLAY! ***

Classic Panic - Tap the blocks to blast combinations off the screen before the pile of blocks reaches the red panic bar and topples over! But there's a limit of blocks you can remove each level... So watch out!
Score Panic - Ready for an endless Push Panic experience? This is your mode! Get the highest score possible until your pile of blocks reaches the top of the screen! Go go go!
Color Panic - Keep you eye on how many blocks of each color there are on your screen! If there are more than 8 blocks on the screen of the same color, you're game over!
Time Panic - Don't have a lot of time to play a game? Don't worry! You only get 180 seconds to try and get the highest score possible! Compete against the world to get to the top with Game Center!

*** COMPETE & GO FOR THE GOLD! ***

Game Center integration provides tons of achievements and allows for competition in real time on global leaderboards. You can also tweet your scores! Try to achieve olympic-like greatness by completing objectives and earning bronze, silver or gold medals!

*** POWER UP & SCORE COMBOS! ***

Randomly falling power-up blocks include chain-links to combine multiple color strings, point multipliers, time freezes, bombs, and a bar-raising block that gives you more wiggle room! Try to link as many colored blocks together as possible for massive combos and bonuses to earn numerous medals and outrank your friends!

Can you handle the onslaught of blocks without losing your cool?

VTX's comments:


Hi Guys,

I wanted to get your attention for the move of Push Panic from Appular to my own publishing account. Appular is quitting the publishing market and removing all their apps from the app store. So I had no other choice then to rerelease Push Panic under my own name. Otherwise Push Panic would just vanish from the app store.

Push Panic is now available under my own name and will be free the first couple of days, so that current customers have a chance to move to the rereleased version for free.

The bad news is that all level progress / GameCenter Leaderboard and Achievements are lost, there was no way to move those over to the new version. On the other hand: Now everyone has a new chance to set a nice rank on the 3 additional game modes.

Also all app store reviews are gone, which is a big shame. So I would like to ask you guys to leave a review. It'll be appreciated.

That sucks. Very cool of u to make it free for a bit during the transition. It's an awesome game. Trying to think if I bought any other Appular games that are being pulled.

Maybe that's a bit OT here.. But I was just curious: how does this re-releasing work, legally-wise? With the rights and everything?

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

Legally I have all the rights of the IP. When it was published by Appular the game's copyright was mine. So legally there is not much more in there. The big problem is the lost of progress and GameCenter Leaderboard and Achievements. And offcourse all the reviews on the internet that now point to an pulled app.

Also all itunes reviews are lost, which is a real bummer. I hope some of you post a new review

So long for releasing a title with a publisher, I propably won't go that route anymore.

that's tough luck, man. losing the reviews especially - your game was pretty popular around here back in it's day and hopefully a few fans of the game will see fit to help you out with a re-download and new review. I hope you saved some email lists

I like your game too and I will help out and give a shout to my people on twitter and FB. Having it free for a few days should help a little Good luck!

Game Impressions

I will try to get a review back up and thanks for this little free preview for us old timers not wanting to be forced to repurchase it (even if it is more than worth repurchasing).
