Moon Drop by NimbleBit

Hey guys, wanted to show you a little preview of what we've been working on here at NimbleBit (when we've had the time). The video below shows and describes the gameplay. But for those who wish to read:

Your mission: Colonize the moon!
Guide ever-growing waves of lunar landing pods down to the surface of the moon to populate it with as many colonists as possible. Using your touch guidance system, maneuver the pods to the landing pad at a safe speed, only so many mistakes are allowed!

Submitted to Apple on July 2nd!

That looks amazingly fun! Can't wait till it comes out! You guys put so much polish in your games and that's what makes them so much fun. Good Job!

and lastly we have the abu sayaf and MILF, two terrorist factions in the Philippines, and ivé yet to see any fruits of labor from the government concerning these terrorist threats.

Though I don't have either game I would say it looks a lot like Parachute Panic. Just sayin'.

Wow. It may be similar to other games, but I love the control scheme. Can you use two fingers at the same time to propell from different directions at once? I think that would be awesome

Oh cool, looks kinda similar to Parachute Panic but with a different theme. I'll be looking forward to this one's release!
