Hi all,

My company, Pixelbyte Studios, has just released its first puzzle game called Terra Forma. It was during a Ludum Dare competition that I created the first prototype for this game. I thought I'd post it here for anyone who might be interested. Thanks in advance for checking it out.

Looks interesting. Is there a lite/demo version available? Sorry, I've been burned too many times.

Yes there is a limited web demo available HERE

Note that is limited in functionality. No user levels, level editor, online high scores, or champions. There are only 6 levels, and just a sampling of the 20+ block type that are currently in the game.

Just downloaded as my son likes these kind of games. Would benefit from auto-rotate as it sits the wrong way on the iPad when in it's case. Will try game later.

I guess I'm just not getting how this game works. The first level has a best number of moves of 8, and it took me over 30. Any suggestions?

Edit: and I did go through the tutorial. Maybe I need to go through it again.
