my fav part of the trailer was the retro music

Okay, I'm beginning to come to the conclusion that I suck at these match-3 games. After flying through levels 1-26 without much trouble, I cannot, for the life of me, even advance to stage 3 of level 27, which I suspect has a lot to do with a fundamental lack of understanding of the basic strategy of these things (never played one before). Anyone have any tips, pointers, general strategy advice for a relative newb?

To the dev: Would it be hard to add an endless mode that would play like a campaign level, except the enemies would continue to spawn until the V.I.P was killed, or you ran out of playing space?

I love the fact that I can play this game with one hand. Perfect for times when I'm holding the new baby in the other arm.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but it might be nice if there was a # of turns needed to acquire 3 stars at level end. Not a big deal, but a few times I've thought I did pretty good only to see that I got a half star for turns.

Anyway, great game!
Thanks Mike! I've been playing Mikey Shorts as it happens (which is awesome) so the can't-stop-playing-ness is reciprocal ;D


Just to let everyone know, progress on the 1.1 update is coming along well, with the following features already completed:
  • Achievements
  • Endless Mode Leaderboard
  • Full iPhone 5 and iPad support (full res on both)
  • Mute button now obeyed
  • Colorblind settings

With more to come before the update ships some time this month

That's great to hear. I'm glad you are enjoying MS, and thanks!

I've still been playing PD, but I think I'm approaching my limit. Finally made it to level 30, and I'm not sure if I'll be making it past -- those levels that require the use of 3 color units are really tough! My go back to playing some of the earlier levels, since there are a lot that I haven't 3 starred.

I have a question for the devs.
I was playing level 15, on the last wave. my scientists had turned the last two enemies into chickens (love that move!) all other enemies dead.

I was building up the action points to kill the chickens and seemingly out of nowwhere a vertical white beam came down and killed my vip and i was defeated. Any idea what this might have been? I'm scratching my head as none of the enemies seemed to have any damage over time abilities capable of doing this.

Thanks and loving the game!

Always suspect the chickens! They aren't as innocent as they seem...

Glad you're enjoying the game

Doesn't it say the chickens are harmless?
