App description: Trail your finger through Carpl's cool water, gathering the lotus flowers while avoiding getting bitten by the pond life who live there.

The longer you survive the more creatures are attracted, the harder it becomes to harvest petals for points.

You lose a life if your finger loses contact with the screen, is bitten by a creature or touches the pond's border.

Taking its style from ancient Japanese wood block art, Carpl has a simple beauty, enhanced by the sound of trickling waterfalls and gentle oriental music.

Carpl is a game of skill and stamina, designed to test your concentration, dexterity and accuracy.

Unify: Be one with the Enso.

Gather: Harvest the Lotus Flowers.

Focus: Be Mindful of Life.

Coral's comments:
This game came out on May 7 and hasn't gotten any reviews or mention that I could find. It seems like it could be a good game. Maybe someone will take one for the team.

I'll wait for it to hit .99 then take the leap.

I searched for Unify and it was in the list. Then I checked it out on App Shopper.

It actually sounds a bit like a Carp themed version of something like Super Collider.

The one thing that kind of scares me off is "take your finger off the screen and you'll lose a life"...seems a little harsh to me.
