We have sent a request in (about a week ago) along with a couple of promo codes. Thanks for the tip, we appreciate your feedback!

Jesus - this is good. Very good. Please make it Universal so I crank it on the iPad. Just started but it really is so well made, presented and a beauty to play.

Damn.

I stumbled over the game on Youtube (not here), where I saw the game trailer.
I watched the video and really liked it.
As I looked for more info on tA, I found a promo code thread (without inpressions or comments, you lazy, ungrateful #%$$*$!), an upcoming thread with just a few posts and this thread without a single reply. I posted and bought it.
Now I am absolutely surprised, why this hasn't gotten any attention so far, because the game really deserves it. It feels like a labour of love and I consider it as hidden gem. It is indeed a bit similiar to the Scribblenauts formula, but only in terms of the genre. Maybe it hadn't got more notice because of the app name...

First, the game is really polished. The storytelling, the quirky music and the detailed scribble/doodle graphics are spot on.
Especially the animations are cool.

So, as I started the game, I was greeted by a fantastic game intro which really made me laugh. The point is: you draw your own character, a stickman, and it suddenly springs to life. Later in the game you get pencils with special powers to solve puzzles and riddles. A fire pencil for burning things, for example. The game got really interesting as it started to feel as if I would play through an epic stickman fantasy movie. You're on a rescue mission of a damsel in distress (or, if you prefer, a gentleman in distress... or damsel saves damsel?). Whatever you like. You play through scenes, always using the power of your magic pencils. And all your drawings come to life.

As stated before, its's scandalous that it nearly went by without any notice.
But I recommend it to everyone loving puzzles or stickman. Or buy it because of awesome.
This is a quite unusual game - but well made and fun. This game has, what lots of games are missing: charme.

Here is the official trailer on Youtube:

Oh, and I think I saw two lite versions to try (one normal, one HD) on the Appstore.

This should be at least a GotW nominee!

I've just stuck this on every device in my house so I can play (i drew my wife so I'm looking for her - slightly cheesy - sorry), my wife can play, and my kids can play. It plays exactly as above and is absolutely fantastic. Completely out of leftfield and all the better for it.

I drew a Frankenstein doodle dude who saves a boobed baywatch babe. Epic.
And yeah, this can be played by the whole family.
