pluto6's comments:
Did a search and did not see it, lookslike it could be an interesting game, although came out quite a while ago. Had a pretty significant price drop down to $2.99 and not sure if anyone would be interested.





There is a video of the game play which looks pretty good at the website

Don't know - I just saw it, and really have no information about it. The video looked pretty good as far as the physics go though. I am not a curling fan, otherwise I would TOFTT... But I thought there might be interest for other people... Original price was $5.99 and that probably threw anyone interested off...

I bought this a long time ago.

I can tell you that it has a permanent spot on my ipod.
It's a great game and the developer is very friendly and helpful.

The only issue I always had with it was the lack of sound (there was very little sound added)

I recommend it!

yeah I got this game a while ago too. It ain't bad. I don't play it much but I did put in a couple hours when I first got it. Maybe I'll get back to playing it sometime. If you like shuffleboard type games and have an extra $3 in your account then try it out.

Hi all,

I thought I'd take this opportunity to finally make my first post here... :)

cranker: There's currently no wifi or bluetooth multiplayer, only PvP with all players on one device and Singleplayer PvAI.

The Venice Trailer shows the new venue that will come in v1.3 (currently in review). After a bit of a break over the summer we'll now try to get back into releasing new content more frequently!

I hope you all enjoy the game!

Welcome - I saw this game and thought that there could be some interest here. Seems to be very well designed, and with good physics models. With the dev on scene there also seems to be increased interest in things.

Hey col000r

How have you been?

This is Scott (colorsound)
Remember, we used to be in contact by email a lot?

I am so happy to see you guys have a new venue coming out (Venice)

It looks great. I hope to see more.

I am still working on my own developing. Slow go!

Anyhow, So great to see Age of Curling is still alive!

To everyone else, I am not a huge Curling fan, either. I don't follow it, heck, I don't even know the exact rules.
BUT, I do love Age of Curling. Sometimes I can really love games for a sport I never follow.

I play many Basketball, Football, Baseball, Tennis, and Racing games...and I don't follow any of those sports!
But I love the games!
Golf is the one exception that I play both Games and Real Life.

Out of over 700 games purchased so far, I still highly recommend Age of Curling.
