Toobz in the Top 100 Games

#77 in the Top 100 Paid Games Toobz 99 cents

#3 is the Top 100 Free Games Toobs Free

Developer's Blog

Toobz is a challenging, fast-paced game that brings together quick reactions, planning, and a little bit of luck.

Your goal is to create a system of "Toobz" (pipes) beginning at a randomly-placed starting point. Your Toobz network must allow water to flow without any spilling. As you advance through levels, you'll have less and less time to place the pieces before the water starts automatically. You can start the water at any time, allowing you to quickly advance to the next level and earn extra points. If you spill any water, though, your game is over and you'll have to try again.

Toobz features two game modes: "Classic Toobz" in which only one upcoming piece is displayed, and the new "Show Toobz" game in which the next four pieces are displayed. Each game has its own unique twist on a classic game.

Toobz features four choices for difficulty, including a new "free play" mode without a timer. Toobz saves your top ten high scores, and fully supports resuming games in progress if a phone call comes in or the Home button is pressed.

Thank you!


I'm the developer of Toobz and Toobz-Free... was just googling a bit and found Dave Mc99's post and video. Thank you so much for posting that video... I've never seen (nor did I ever think about) doing a spiral of Toobz. That's awesome.

I'm glad it looks like you had some fun with Toobz... it's exciting seeing Toobz being used by folks. It's exactly why I created Toobz.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Thanks for the nice comments. I'm biased so I can't agree, but...

I've definitely never been in the Top 100 games with Toobz... in April I cracked the Puzzle and Strategy sub-category top 100's for a couple days, but that's it.

Needless to say I'm pretty excited with Toobz-Free being at #2 overall free now and with Toobz at #61 in Games. Those are so far beyond my highest expectations... it's all very exciting. Then throw on top of it all someone makes a better video of my game then the one on my website... makes for an awesome week

congrats on the release of your app. I misread the title though and thought "Toobin" was out. Remember that game?
