Trak4 - Puzzle game coming June 25th

Hello touchArcade forum users....

My first app, Trak4, is coming to the App Store on June 25th. You can see screenshots at http://www.trak4game.com. There is a youtube video here.




Description

In Trak4, the player is trying to beat the clock in matching the tile pattern on the right to the pattern on the left. Players earn points for the time remaining. If they match the pattern correctly, the player gets another round. If the pattern doesn’t match the game is over. The twist is that the player can only see the entire target pattern for the first few seconds of each round. After that the pattern is cloaked in darkness and the player can only see the portion that appears underneath the moving spotlight. If players get stuck, they can press the “Hint” button to get a quick peek at the target pattern.

The game requires OS 2.2.1 and has been tested on OS 3.0. Trak4 will sell for $0.99 in the United States and priced similarly around the world. A Lite version of the application is currently under review at Apple and should be available soon.



How To Play

1. The object of the game is to match the pattern on the right with the pattern on the left before time runs out.
2. You get a sneak peek of the pattern on the left at the beginning of each round. After that quick peek, the pattern will be covered by a black curtain. You will be able to see a small portion of the pattern as the spotlight bounces around the pattern.
3. Touch the tiles on the right to rotate them. Each time you touch a tile it will rotate 90 degrees clockwise. Keep rotating the tiles until you think you have the pattern matched correctly.
4. If you get stuck, press the HINT button to get a quick peek of the target pattern. Be careful, you only get one HINT per round. If you don’t use the HINT button, you will earn 500 BONUS POINTS when you successfully solve the pattern.
5. Press SOLVE when you think you have matched the pattern. If you are right, you will win the round. You will earn points for the time remaining.
• On EASY: 5 points per second remaining
• On MEDIUM: 10 points per second remaining
• On HARD: 15 points per second remaining
Special Note: Earn 500 BONUS POINTS if you don’t need to use the HINT button.
