Classic arcade-puzzle gameplay, memory recall, and color matching come together in Light Byte, an innovative new puzzle game with a twist.

Colored blocks descend from the top of the screen, and you must clear them by matching blocks of the same color. Match longer chains of same-colored blocks to unlock powerups and the all-powerful Frenzy mode, as blocks explode away with fiery pyrotechnics. But things arent that simple. As you progress, the colors start to fade, so youll need to use your memory in addition to your fast reflexes to clear them.

Easy to grasp, yet challenging at the same time, Light Byte is a quick and addictive puzzle game you wont want to put down.

GAME FEATURES
Simple Tap-to-Shoot Controls: Shoot the blocks as they descend; chain together blocks of the same color to clear them.
Memory Gameplay: Blocks fade quickly so you'll need to remember their colors!
Five Colors: Three starting colors - red, blue, yellow - with green and purple blocks to unlock as you play.
Upgradeable Powerups: Use powerups (one for each color) to help you stay alive. Each can be upgraded to a super version if you advance far enough in the game.
Mission Mode: Beat up to 50 missions to earn stars and test your reflexes and color-matching might.
Multiple Game Modes, including Endless Mode, Full Byte Mode, and three versions of Time Attack. Earn them for free as you play the game, or unlock them immediately as in-app purchases.
Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements: Compete against friends and yourself.
Unlock Themes: Earn stars to unlock unique themes like toy blocks, rings, and bubbles to customize the look of Light Byte.

I've been playing this for the last couple days... and am definitely enjoying it. It's got a great scoring system, and plenty of challenge... as well as tons of modes which you can unlock (by just playing the game and racking up points, or by purchasing them through IAP) - though I know being able to purchase them through IAP makes it look like that's the only way you can get them when it shows in iTunes... but every mode is unlockable just by playing the game...

I'm hooked... it's another great Ayopa title. =oD

no problem-o... I also talked to Ayopa, and they said that iCloud support will be in the next update, which is good, because unlocking all the modes requires quite a few points (Normal Mode in Time Attack requires you get 5 million points to unlock it, Challenge Mode in Time Attack requires 10 million, and Extreme requires 50 million while Full Byte Mode needs 25 million. - all points are cumulative, you don't need to score 50 million in one game to unlock Extreme Time Attack Mode...) =oP

In other words, grind or pay up? How novel.

well, I've played about 20 games, and get between 600,000 and 800,000 each game in Endless Mode... it's not really too much of a grind. But I don't really expect to only play a mode once and be sick of it, move on to the next and be done with it forever. Games like this are meant to be played over and over again, aren't they?
