Default Shape Shuffle - A Shape Saga

I'm one of the folks on the development team for Shape Shuffle (and a long time Touch Arcade reader/lurker) which was recently released to the App Store. We just released an update that we feel offers the best version of the app yet.

We're always looking for feedback and suggestions so I thought I'd mention it here and see what you guys thought.




Here's the first promotional video we did when we first released the app that pretty much sums up the gameplay.

Gonna give this a try, it looks quirky, is it aimed at kids! Don't mind either way as my daughter will enjoy it if it's not for adults.

We're taking a "something for everyone" approach where the Easy to Medium puzzles are geared more towards a younger audience and Hard difficulty puzzles more for adults.

Let me know how it goes, excited to hear what you think.

Default That's a lot of free puzzles!

As an app developer myself, i'd be interested to know with so many free puzzles, are people buying anything in the store? Difficult balance I know, but the game is great. Strong single player puzzler.

I have had a little go and have enjoyed what I have played, I was worried about it being too easy for me but even from the very first puzzle I had to use my brain (it could be because I'm a thicko though hehe) and they got harder the further I got. I'll be recommending to my friends and their kids as I think it's one of those nice apps for parents and kids to work together on.

It's definitely a challenge finding the balance between offering IAP vs. a single price for the app. We just introduced "bundles" and additional puzzles to offer better value for users. Will have to see how that goes...

This is an interesting visual-puzzle idea. It looks great. The puzzle results do look nice! Seems pretty easy so far for a visual guy like me.. I wish I could deactive that cheap whohoo sound effect without deactivating all sound effects.

Thanks for the feedback Ploink. Let me know if you find the "Hard" puzzles challenging.

Regarding the sound effects the plan was always to add more "puzzle complete" sounds so that every time you updated there would be a selection of different sounds that are randomized when you complete the puzzle.

Just wanted to let folks know that we updated the app (version 1.2.5) recently to include hints. Some of our users were having some troubles with the harder puzzles and requested this feature.

Check it out and let me know what you guys think.
