----- Selected Review Quotes -----

"ZEZ has been given the utmost attention and dedication in its creation." - 148Apps.com

"The most frantic minute of matching I've played in ages." - Kotaku.com

"I had a fever dream once with a similar premise, but it wasnt nearly as much fun." - CultOfMac.com

----- Overview -----

SMASH
Jump into the arena to challenge the robot champion.

RISE
Match 3 robots to get an explosive boost. Match 4 to fill your frenzy bar and blast of into the sky.

CRASH
Come back down at super sonic speeds and deliver some feline vengeance.

It took us 20 months to develop this 60 second game. We think it might just keep you entertained for 20 more.

Heres the usual list of stuff the game has:

-Fast-paced, frantic gameplay
-No artsy, minimalistic vector graphics. The game is filled with painstakingly frame by frame drawn animations.
-Simple and precise controls and game mechanic
-10 unique and detailed rockets with specific animations and sounds.
-Custom soundtrack
-4 over the top final impact animations
-Gamecenter and Leaderboards

This is *NOT* a freemium game. The in app purchases are for a coin doubler in case you want to progress through the game a bit faster.

This *IS* a beautiful, fast paced, quick reflex game that will keep you hooked for a really long time.

This is certainly an enjoyable little time waster, great art and fun...GameCenter leaderboards would ensure a permanent spot on my device

Though i'm pretty sure that this game will go under the radar in no time...

This is a cute, short but brilliant match-3 timewaster but playing it is in the same moment just wasted time, literally...it's just so clueless having NO gamecenter leaderboard in a highscore chaser like this. And that's a shame, because it's polished, ultra fast loading and with top-notch controls.

Devs, are you out there ?

Is it really that big of a deal? I have absolutely no experience with Gamecenter.

The next planned update will include facebook integration a la Diamond Dash, so I was thinking of not integrating GC because of the memory problems i had to deal with on the ipod.

Who would have played Canabalt or Boson X or whatever a thousend times without leaderboards ?! Not many, my guess.
Yeah, it is important, at least to me. This one-more-go to chase the leader
or some of TA's members (or both) or just my new best score, but i want
to compare it with somebody. (And facebook won't do this for me, not into)

I wish you luck with this gem and i'm definitely looking forward to your next game, because you showed your talents on this one, imho.

You're right... I'm looking into integrating gc right now.

Many thanks!
