I realise a lot of people will be put off by the AppStore "description" and the rather unfortunate name but it's actually not too shabby.

It's a twitch avoidance game with the usual dodge enemies, collect pickups gameplay but its' twist is quite nice; there are circles on the screen that you can pass through that activate special abilities like missiles and shields. A little like Tilt to Live but with static power-ups.

Quite a nice soundtrack and visual style, slightly awkward controls but at least not tilting. It's worth trying a lot more than the AppInfo might lead you to believe and there's an Unlock IAP, which is always a nice thing to see.

Haha, not sure this is quite up there with the greats but it's definitely too good to go ignored. I'm just lucky with my timing I think - or I'm more obsessive than most with checking the AppStore!

Not as far as I can see. I also can't find how to purchase the unlock from this version which leads me to think there'll be a seperate full version soon. Sorry for that, was thrown by the weird way to sell the game!

This game is a lot of fun. Nice minimalist style and the "zone=power up" adds some strategy and depth

Actually if any of you are interested, there's a cool PC indie releasing this year that's similar. Dfferent zones give you different attributes, and you can create and reshape the arena while playing.

Yeah that's strange there are no unlocks. Game seems to be a little buggy too, but it sure does have some potential if they polish it.

Ha, cheers!

I honestly only find things before others because I'm borderline OCD about checking the appstore. Trying to think what game it might be that you are looking for, I gather that if you wishlisted it that it was a paid app so these are the apps I've posted recently that aren't free:

Doodle Kingdom, Front Wars, Tree Wars, Atomic Fusion (IAP Unlock), One Button Sports, Grandpa and the Zombies, Foxtrot!, Harry Likes Plums (iPhone), Blokus (rerelease), DayD Tower Rush, The Dead Hop, Hypership Still Out of Control, Neon Beat.

There are a few others, but I can only organise them by most recently posted on so they're a little jumbled. If I had to guess, I'd say the IAP for Atomic Fusion or maybe Neon Beat as they're the most twitchy games.
Have definitely noticed that I post far too much haha
