Str8ts 6x6 (approved tomorrow?)

First off,

A huge thanks to everyone on touchArcade for helping Str8ts do so well in the first few weeks.

I would like to intro our 6 x 6 version the smaller version of the Str8ts 9 x 9. 6 x 6 is definitely a stand alone puzzle. It has a different taste than the 9 x 9.
I make a lot more mistakes in this smaller puzzle. No idea why! This puzzler is perfect when you only have a few minutes in a hectic day. The real nice thing about this puzzle the clues can be reduced to less than a hand full and still produce a unique solution. Andrew Stuart has really done some magic again hand picking 800 puzzles ( 4 levels x 200 puzzles ) We believe in value and making sure we keep puzzlers happy.

At 0.99 cents it allows puzzle fans to test the concept of Str8ts. A lite version is planned with 20 puzzles ( 6 x 6 ) We need the code from the 6 x 6 to be able to link our add in the Lite version. So we are looking at another two weeks for the free version. Sorry, it was supposed to be the other way around. Enjoy the screen shots. One definite advantage is the extra space on the screen.

Should also be an update to the full app... just sayin.

No need to have people buy an app to test it out.

Hi Tim,
My choice of words is misleading, I agree. The two games are separate entities. The game mechanics ( concept ) is the same. My point was you can try out the concept for .99 c instead of 2.99 for the 9 x 9 version. Our website www.str8ts.com has both version as daily on line puzzles as well for anyone to try out the 6 x 6.

Well I'll be looking forward to it. Jeff, you and Andrew work some nice magic with your games.

I could see the 6x6 being a subset of the 9x9 game though. I don't know much about the marketing aspects, but could it make a feasible $3.99? Then everyone is happy, and we save an icon space on the springboard.

Yeah, I'd rather purchase the 6x6 set in the original game as an in-game purchase than have two icons. (16 pages on my iPod Touch and they're all full... )

Although I'd have to say the 9x9 game works very well as a play for a few minutes type of game, as it seems I usually get stuck, and when I come back later I get hit with the Aha!s and see obvious things I missed before...

I really enjoy this game (the original 9x9 version).

Cheers,

Jamie.
