Also, I did chuckle to see that you have rated you own game 5 stars; ) I would probably do the same if I had a game to sell...

EDIT: One other thing. Is it 'same device' multiplayer, or something else?
Hey!

No - it seems iTunes hasn't updated yet. It's going down to 59p - this evening, I guess. I'm finding iTunes VERY slow at the moment - I updated the price yesterday!

And of course I'm gonna give it a rating - I think it's great! Plus I had to pay the 1.19 to buy it, 30% of which goes to Apple...

The game is currently "same device" multiplayer, yes - if the game sells enough, and we get enough feedback about the game, we'll look to make that wireless. It's only been out 2 days, though, so we'll have to sell a few more yet!

He just said it was 99c

It's a decent game. They've done a fair job of simulating real jenga via the controls and physics. It could use some minor fixes in both, but at 99c and the promise of updates, I'd say it's worth it, if this looks like it might interest you.

Yup - definitely 99c. The full price is $1.99, and it'll stay at 99c until the first update, so get it while it's hot!

We're also always keen to hear about improvements that you, as gamers, think we could make to our games. Personally, I think there is a lot that people don't realise you can do in this game yet - like tap and pull a brick, for example - it's not just dragging!

Also, the physics is calculated so accurately that sometimes the bricks can stick (just like the real thing) as well as the fact that if you're quick enough, you can remove seemingly "impossible" bricks and the tower will just drop down on itself!

The next version is even faster too. If there's a big enough interest in this, we're also planning a 3GS only version which has a much bigger tower and an extra special "expert" mode which will be only for true masters of the game!

Very nice of you to say so! Really glad you're enjoying it - it's 50% of the reason we do this afterall...

The next update will be submitted to Apple tomorrow (just in QA at the moment), so I'd expect it'll be available in the next 2-3 weeks.
