It looks very interesting. Is the object to hit the ships? Or to miss them? It looks like points are being awarded regardless. How do you set how high the fireworks are going?

Any special type of fireworks, or combo type situations possible?

The game description says you have to avoid them otherwise the crowd will get upset.

Thanks for the comments!

Our initial release is designed to get you acclimated to the gameplay and mechanics. The next version will actually be incorporating more types of bonuses, more types of fireworks, and absolutely, a combo system. Also, we're accepting nighttime city photos for those who want to see their city in the game. See the site for details ( http://libertyboom.com )

The fireworks are ignited by tapping one of the four columns at the bottom - the higher you let them go, the more points you'll get. The tricky part is avoiding the aircraft, but you do have some control over those by tilting your device.

My first impressions:

Polished production: graphics, animations, sounds, interface and music.

The online high score increases the replay value.

The gameplay itself is simple. You tap just to ignite the firework. You control the e.g. bonus speed by tilting. You have to avoid aircrafts because crowd may get upset and then it's game over.

My suggestions:

- add minus sign in the firework score when you e.g. hit an airplane (the color difference was not clear enough initially - a red color would be a bit clearer)

- make the bottom spot (from where the firework was launched) blink or something (sometimes it is not so clear the launch location)

A good game perfect for a quick session (unless you are really good).

I'm a sucker for most things related to fireworks, and this game looks really interesting. I like the graphics and art style of it, and love the idea of putting on a display for people. A fun looking game, a bit different from the norm.

I'd be very interested in seeing London added as a skyline in a future update
