App description: iON Bond is a puzzle game about bonding and colliding subatomic particles.

Form bonds to create forces between particles, and collide them together inside a simulated vacuum to and create beautiful cloud particle collisions and advance through the stages.

- 70 Levels

- Numerous particle types and features which bend the laws of physics

- Secret game mode for anyone who manages to get a perfect score

Anyone? Hello? I can't be the only one interested in this. Anyone here play "I Am Level"?

I'm currently on the third chapter of Ion Bond and I'm really enjoying it. Rather than ions and particles, it's easier to think of the game as about magnets in zero gravity. Same-charged nodes repel each other, differently-charged nodes attract. By linking nodes, you can manuever them around the screen, to both collide like-colored nodes and to collect the three pick-ups in each level. It's all about figuring out how to use the bonds and different node charges to your advantage and when to break bonds and conserving momentum.

The chapters start out simple enough, and each adds a new mechanic, from particle-destroying dark matter surfaces, neutral white nodes, static unmoving modes, undecided nodes whose charge can be changed, and that's only the four out of the six chapters.

Ion Bond is easy to control, looks great, and feels polished. The mechanics are simple but when combined, allow for a variety of challenging puzzles. My only complaint is the first two chapters are kind of easy, but the third chapter is tricky and I haven't started the others yet.

I'm going to pick it up too but in the UK we have one more sleep to go. Be right with it in the morning.

I am definitely interested, but ... Since I live in the Netherlands this game still is not available in the AppStore . I will have to wait another 1,5 hours before I can try it.

Nope, I am here!

Great game!

Highly recommended!

Really really like it. A very nice puzzler. I think it'll take a lot to get it noticed but I think it's a little cracker and do hope people pick it up.
I would love Game Center on it - some kind of score based on time to complete lever x number of stars/neutrinos kind of thing.
Gets very tricky too but so far everything has been possible.

Quick edit: a restart level button on the right hand side would be great too as I tend to try to 3 star levels before moving on. No big shakes - pause and restart is only a matter of seconds more but it would just be nice to have.

Yeah, hopefully, it will get more attention, a really good game here.

The bonding effects do look awesome, mesmerizing.
