How on Earth does this game not have any posts yet?

Anyway, I am really enjoying this! It's like the lovechild of Dr. Mario and Puzzlejuice. It's incredibly stylish, well-presented and addictive. I absolutely love it, it's challenging too.

All in all, people should definitely be playing this - especially if you enjoyed some of the devs other games; SEQ, Mr Flap and ON/OFF. Congrats on being featured in Best New Games by Apple by the way!

Damn, I missed this thread yesterday. This game is excellent.

I was lucky enough to play pre-release, here are my impressions from the Upcoming thread
I haven't played many Tetris style games so I'm sure other games have had a similar mechanic. Due to the urgency of timer, PILE does for matching/Tetris games what Word Mage did for word games. It's fast and challenging, as you only have seconds to scan the board, think steps ahead, and figure out the best place to place your blocks. The additions of power-ups and special blocks only add to the arcadey vibe.

I'm really enjoying PILE. There's a whole wealth of content here: the regular Classic mode, a Missions mode which I've yet to unlock, and a Special mode. Beyond that, you can also upgrade power-ups, which range for slowing the clock and clearing columns to negative effects like hiding the colors of the blocks.
As ON/OFF and SEQ proved, 1Button know how to make excellent hard-as-hell minimalist puzzle games, and PILE is no exception. Check this game out, it's worth your time

PILE has been downloaded 250,000 times in just two days! Apple featured it in many countries, which is awesome.

Unfortunately, we noticed a terrible bug a few days ago _
We submitted a fix, I hope it'll be validated soon.

According to Google Analytics, there are a lot of jailbreakers who are already playing into the Special mode. In a sense, it's quite nice to know that people are actually playing into this hardcore mode because we put a lot of effort to design it ^^.

250K? Well, damn! Good job haha

I agree with all Pete and Bronx had to say, including this being up to par with your other great games ON/OFF, SEQ, and Mr. Flap
