$15 iTunes Gift Card + 1" button contest! "Halloween Kids Puzzles"

Hey Touch Arcaders!
I'm back already with another cool promo contest!

Scott Adelman and I just released our latest app game, "Halloween Kids Puzzles: The Best Pirate, Vampire and Mummy Games for Toddlers, Boys and Girls"! As you can tell from the title, it is a Halloween jigsaw puzzle game with a pirate, a vampire, a mummy and it is the best!
It also has black cats and witches and unicorn bats and all your other standard Halloween accoutrements. Trick or treating, haunted houses and ghosts, the whole bit. Nothing scary tho, it is appropriate for all ages.

We used a cool new piece of animation software for this one called Spine, so the animations are really dynamic and awesome! I would personally love if you checked them out, because I want to show them off as much as possible
Much like our other two collaborations, Mermaid Princess Puzzles and Fairy Ballerina Puzzles, this app has 12 puzzles total- four are included with the free download, and it's 1.99 to unlock the other eight, the full version comes with all of the puzzles unlocked. There are adjustable settings so you can control the number of pieces in the jigsaw puzzle, you can also turn guides/hint pictures on and off for increasing difficulty. There's lots of positive encouragement, when a puzzle is completed it magically comes to life with applause for the child, and a rain of pumpkin confetti floats down. You can pop the confetti and it turns into an explosion of candy. I did this to every piece of confetti every time during testing, it is the most fun ever.

There are no third-party advertisements, data collection software or links to social networks- we strive to be ultra-kid-friendly!!
There are links to our other apps via GeoRiot/Linkshare in a separate "Parents" section because if you like this app, we think you'll like our other apps too!

Reviewed as hoganklink in the US app store. I finally sat done and played it with my toddlers. They had a lot of fun with it and really liked the pumpkins puzzles.
