Shape Reactor is an addictive and challenging chain reaction game for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Using a combination of skill, solid timing, good planning, and a little luck, your goal is to clear all the shapes from a level as quickly as possible. Earn money by doing well, and spend it on upgrades to help you do better!

Throughout the game, unlock awards, earn XP points (experience), increase your high scores, monitor your friends' progress, and compete on the online leaderboards for facebook and twitter bragging rights!

Instructions available below and in-game.

**Added falling shape bonus game, unlockable on completing all the levels of the hardest difficulty**

-4 shapes with different properties:
-circles explode
-squares ram blindly
-triangles ram but are controllable by tilting
-power circles explode big-time
-shake the device to give all shapes a new direction.
-upgrades for each shape to help clear levels quickly.
-4 levels of difficulty, each containing 7 levels. 4 x 7 = 28 levels.
-online leaderboards for XP, and each difficulty level, each split into global, nearby, friends, and personal categories.

-share and compare your scores and awards online through Facebook, Twitter, and AGON.

Thanks jimmyjam for the support and feedback.

In the next update I have a bunch of stuff:

-fixed access to the bonus game - it should be on the main screen and only once the game is complete
-added better tips to help someone who is new to the game
-reduced the memory footprint
-updated AGON to the latest client
-other small tweaks

Apple should be approving this soon. Then I'll finally be happy

cool thanks!

will you be adding new shapes in the future?
09-02-2009, 04:07 PM
I could well do. I could also add more levels

First though I need to clean up a few things and get some better sound in there.
09-02-2009, 04:40 PM
more levels would be sweet.....they'd have to be called "No chance" levels, and you have only 0 taps to complete it....

I know a guy who can do some good sound for you.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I'll definitely let you know if I need your buddy to do something, but my brother is a sound engineer and composer so he gets the first shot.
