It's a very good game. I'm sure you will like it if you like atomic+ or anything like it.

The free version is somewhat ad supported - no limits on gameplay, no iap.

My imps from the pre-release thread

Really really enjoying this one!

These types of games are some of my favorite for mobile: a simple one touch twitch game that still manages to a have a surprising amount of meat on it's bones.

What I wrote on upcoming thread.



Loving this, you basically have to survive as long as possible as you travel over spinning circles that shrink towards the centre then disappear, you need to move away from the centre by tapping, to complicate it you've gotta avoid red obstacles which are also orbiting on their circles at varying speeds, there are orbiting bonus blue items which give you a variety of powers such as score multiplier, then there's also green items which award you with points.
The longer you last the faster the circles shrink and the faster the obstacles orbit, when teamed with the soundtrack it's hypnotic despite being frantic . It's the type if game where you need to be in the zone and bug out to do well, I've got to level four with a high score of 3064, Andy will be ruling the boards once he gets his hands on this.

I like the colour changes as you change levels but wasn't so keen on the beige scheme as there wasn't enough contrast to distinguish the obstacles and it was difficult to see what I should avoid.

Def worth checking out when it's launched.

He also released Cargo King, which is so simple yet strangely addicting, at least for now.
