Looks Awesome

The graphics look awesome, and so does the gameplay, although I'm not 100% sure how you would play the game... What kind of gameplay is it? I don't get it even with the screenshots.

@isky the basic cutting mechanic is much the same as it was in the flash games in the series. You touch down and drag across and let go to make a cut anywhere you want. We have added the ability to move the starting position of the cut if you drag it with another finger too. Scrolling is quite different from the original..... You just use two fingers now which is much simpler.

@tannorexic I hope your left bum cheek is right! We have put our all into this so we hope it's quality helps it get noticed but this is new territory for us so we really don't know what to expect! We hope it does well enough to make more games for iOS but if people pick up the clones of our games that is less likely they will still be interested in what we make! If you point them out others look for them so it would be appreciated if you don't spread the problem... Thanks

@everyone else.....thanks for the support....more soon!

When I see a game with great artistry, I'm usually sucked in by it's allure. Regardless of it's gameplay, I just want to enjoy it. But by what I've seen this is a perfect combination of great, charming art, challenging puzzles and simple gameplay. I'm very much looking forward to this!

IceBreaker - Update 1

Hi All, just to let you know that there is an update giving more information about the game. We will be doing several of these leading up to the launch of the game. The first of these is 'Side Quests'. We have written what we hope will be an interesting post walking you through an example in the game with shots. This is a great example of one of the many additions we are adding to the genre to make this a really stand out experience and hopefully a top selling iOS release!
