*** AWESOME GRAPHICS & MATCHING MUSIC ***

Use your sense of rhythm, precise taps and quick decisions to help Billy to paint the old factory.

You are thrown to the era of the swinging twenties & hand-made animations before the time of jet planes and computers, not to mention mobile phones. Poor Billy has a hard job to do. He has to paint the floor of an old factory after the removal of obsolete machines. He has to paint the revealed surface exactly, and he cant spill any paint over the rest of the shiny floor.

Every tap you make starts a wave of paint expanding in all directions until it hits the older, already finished part of the floor. Try to fill as large an area as you possibly can before the first wave goes over the limit. The more precise you are, the more points you get!

* TIP 1: YOU CAN MAKE AS MANY WAVES AS YOU WANT. *
* TIP 2: DON'T QUIT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LEVEL. MAKE NEW WAVES UNTIL THE FIRST WAVE HITS THE BORDER. IT COUNTS! *

The game is easy to start, but you can improve your skills forever. You can try many strategies to fill the area with the best possible precision. In theory you could fill all levels with 100% precision! In practice, 95% is great, 90% good, and even 50% is enough for the first level. Requirements increase slowly, but certainly. You just cant make too many mistakes without losing a job.

Billy has three opportunities to show his skills. He gets a warning after each level, where he doesnt fulfill precision requirements. After three warnings he is sacked from the job and the game is over for you.

Earn BONUS POINTS by painting over old paint of wrong color splattered over the field. Dont be too greedy and mess up your percentages by going too near the borders too early!!!

Every tenth level is a BONUS LEVEL where you earn double points.

About the game

The game takes a player to the era of the swinging twenties & and-made animations. The player has to paint the floor of an old factory after the removal of obsolete machines. He has to paint the revealed surface exactly, and he cant spill any paint over the rest of the shiny floor.

Every tap a player makes starts a wave of paint expanding in all directions until it hits the older, already finished part of the floor. A player has to fill as large an area as he possibly can before the first wave goes over the limit. The more precise he is, the more points he will get!

A good sense of rhythm, precise taps and quick decisions are needed for success.

There's no level select, and the game does not appear to preserve the levels you've completed after you quit playing. At least that's the way it's working on my new iPad 3rd gen.

Currently free. I will likely download and provides impressions
Edit: Polished, and very casual. not my cup of tea, but not bad.
