This looks cool, but I've never played a fireworks game so I don't know what actual gameplay of these games consists of.

Thanks rich_952000! Basically, it's arcade style gameplay. So Fireworks shoot up onto the screen and you've got to tap them to make them explode and get points. If they fall off the screen before you tap them, you take a hit, and after 3 strikes you're out!

Haha, I know! So would New Years, but it wasn't quite ready at that point unfortunately. I plan to do some extra marketing and promotion around July 4th this year, and hopefully keep the momentum up.

Have had chance to play the game, I would love if there is any possibility to make it universal as some of the art gets a little blurry on the mini.

Both myself and my daughter have played the game and we have both had fun. So far I've only played on normal and it gets frantic at times, esp when you're waiting for the blue fireworks to come back into screen while trying to clear a ton of yellow ones.

My eight year old said it reminds her of fruit ninja in that you avoid the red fireworks and have three lives, she said that she'd like if there were more coloured fireworks that do differnt things, like maybe some Catherine wheels , those spiral things, that you have to tap before it hits the centre.

For the most part the controls were accurate but very occasionally a yellow and red appeared too close together that it was impossible to on,y hit the yellow, so I lost a life as I either had to let the yellow go or hit the red, but out if the twenty or so games I played this happened once to me and once to my daughter who played about the same amount.

I agree Cloudpuff. I like the visuals here, simple yet colorful. I like that there's a fun mode. Just sitting in my dark living room blowing up fireworks randomly. You can tap to do so or you can swipe for chains of them.

I have a few thoughts for the main game. More fireworks with more characteristics. Example; a green one that when you tap it it splits into three smaller ones. Also I would like to see chains and combos in normal mode.

That said, the game is day and surprisingly relaxing

Edit: I just retread CP's post and her daughter has some good suggestions
