[Maker of Causality] 7 Pips - A Challenging Puzzle Game of Math & Planning

[Update: The game has been sent to apple, waiting for review]

Release Date: 11th September

Hi all,

After my previous stage-based puzzle game: Causality, I now bring to you 7 Pips!

This game will be available for both iOS and Android.

7 Pips is a endless/survival style puzzle game. It requires a bit of simple mathematical calculation, more importantly the ability to plan ahead. Basic gameplay as follows:

- Every move, you place a die faced tile on the 4x4 board
- The tile could be of one of two colors
- The value of the tile that was placed would be
a. added to adjacent tiles of the same color
b. subtracted from adjacent tiles of different color
- values roll over at 1 and 7 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3,etc), eg, 5+4 = 2, 3-6=4
<There is a in-game help system that helps display the calculated final values of tiles adjacent where you want to place your current tile>

- Adds or subtract a tile to exactly 7 and you will clear it from the board, scoring it.
- Clearing more tiles with a single move earns exponentially more points (so plan your tile placement for best scoring output!)
- Fill up all 16 slots of the board and its Game Over.

This game is currently available on the Windows Phone Store, was featured on the store over the past few weeks in various countries.

A review by WPCentral can be read here

I am in the process of further polishing the game to be ported to iOS as well as adding iOS specific features such as score sharing and game center leaderboard.

I hope those who liked my previous game would love this too. And I hope even more people would give my games a chance.
