This just showed up... could be awful. anyone want to TOFTT?

App store link - 99 cents

Evacuation is a game of strategy, quick wits, and explosive decompression!

Aliens have invaded your cargo hold, and the only way to get rid of them is to vent them into space! But try not to airlock too many of the crew - they aren't insured!

Tap the doors to open and close them, or tap the floors to place a flag for your crew to rally around.

If you accidentally evacuate the captain, it's game over - he's also the pilot.

If you lose all your crew, it's game over too - when you have no crew, no one can hear you scream...

if there is only that one gamemode though, it might get boring

Another game game that looks really funny but doesn't give enough description to tell it it warrants a purchase or not.

Kinda like The Inclining World (which features a totally awesome description!)

Bytejacker featured this one earlier in the year. Looked cool, but not really my speed.

I'm such a sucker for space/sci-fi stuff, I know it probably won't play a huge part but it make me stroke my chin for a second. There's so much good stuff out there you almost don't even need to take risks anymore.

This is actually a decent puzzle game. I might end up buying it when I finish my restore ( app icons mixed up )

It's pretty fun, actually. The goal is to jettison all the baddies, without making too many of your space dewds suck vacuum. Tapping a door toggles the state of all similarly colored doors. When an exterior door is open, baddies and crewmen alike are sucked into space along the entire path of open cabins. The player can place a flag in adjacent room to make crewmen move there, so the gameplay consists of getting crewmen to safety and then opening doors in the proper sequence to boost the baddies to oblivion. The ship reconfigures for each new level. The soundtrack is appropriately lighthearted and the sound for the airlock is great. The graphics are WYSIWYG, as shown in the screenshots. It's a fun puzzle game that makes you think.
