Pot The Ball - A swiping brain training game

Hi Friends,

Here is a simple but fun brain training game that I have been working on recently after releasing HigherLower game on the App Store to massive patronage (180K downloads in one week).

We would appreciate your feedback. At this point, we have submitted to Apple for review and should ship before the end of the month October. We will provide more information on timelines.

Below is the app store description as well as some screen shots from the game and a short games play video. Note this is a flat but beautiful design.

Pot the Ball is an elegant game about speed, reflex, accuracy and concentration. It is a brain game to help train your mind. This game is really fun, engaging, addicting and more importantly has significant replay value.

Even though Pot the Ball spots a simple and flat design, it is really beautiful, colorful and pleasing on the eye.


Gameplay

Pot The Ball uses twitch gameplay.

Six different colored balls and four colored holes -

Score point by swiping or potting the ball to match the colored hole-
a. Green balls potted to green hole
b. Yellow balls swiped to yellow hole
c. Red balls putted to red hole
d. Blue balls potted to blue hole

However, to make it more interesting, fun and unpredictable, there two additional balls with different gameplay

1. Power ball - can be potted to any of the four colored holes to get a point
2. Spike ball - doesn't have to be potted. You just have to double tap it to get the point.

To increase the exciting moments in the game and also add additional complexity, the colored circle representing the hole rotates so at one point, the yellow hole will be at 90 degrees and at another time it would be at 270 degrees depending on when the yellow ball randomly shows up.

This is an exciting game and the gameplay is riveting!

I am very excited about playing your game because it is so different then anything else I've seen.
Congrats on making an original!
I do see similarities to pieces or prts of other games or genres but still, this is definately not a copy.
I could be wrong. LOL

I look forward to playing.

Any idea of the release date yet?

Hi Lavender,

Thanks for the comment. I try to make an original - at least an original twist. I haven't come across any game like this... have you? Check LetterHero, my other game and you will see it has an entirely new gameplay / concept as well

I am targeting 10/24 release date. Will definitely throw a promo code your way when it is approved.

Thank you.
No, I haven't come across a game like this one. Just ones with mild similarities that are not worth comparing
I look forward to playing and I will take a look at your other game.

Just to confirm the release date is 10/23.

I made a mistake in the earlier post.

Can't wait to have it in people hands.
