Countdown: DownToZero - arcade puzzle game

UPDATE - DownToZero (now called "Countdown") is now available in the App Store!

Hello everyone. First we'd like to thank everyone for supporting our first game "Ouch!". Everyone on these forums provided us with a lot of valuable feedback for the game (not to mention many great custom scenes).

As a thanks, we'd like to give toucharcade forum members a sneak preview of our next game:

DownToZero

It's an arcade puzzle game (more details and screens below).

The game is already approved by Apple, but the official release date is set for July 11, which is when the game will be available to the general public. However, since it's already approved, you can get the game early via:

While probably just bitter I missed out, I think there aren't just human lurkers but some automated stuff as I was here just a minute or two after the post and all codes that I tried were used.

Devs, you're much better off doling out the codes via PMs if you want to have at least SOME IDEA who is snagging them and that they'll give you some legitimate feedback.

good point about the PM's, to be honest I was weary about posting the codes like that... but I didn't think they would go THAT quick

...so if anyone missed out and is truly interested in the game, give me a PM. I can probably arrange something for at least another 15 codes or so
