Thanks! Looks a leeetle like an arcadey Thomas Was Alone. Bet it doesn't play anything like that. Seems fun, however it plays.

Wonder if that extra 'i' is a copyright thing.

I like it. It's either crazy hard or I don't completely understand how to play all sections! LOL
No tutorial that I could find. Obviously you press the down arrow to 'shrink' and go under an obstacle. Press the up arrow to 'jump' over an obstacle. The part I am unsure of, is that there are 2 rectangles at the bottom right of the screen. A red one and blue one. I tapped them a few times but unsure what the result is??
There is an obstacle area that is colored red or blue. I am assuming that you tap a color to change the color?
The potential is really great. The parts that I could play were very fast, challenging and fun.
I know that I will love this game once I understand it! LOL

Thanks for the heads up.

The dev also has another game free called Klict. Not sure if its good or not but it doesn't have IAP so I figure It might be worth locking in a license.

This is a fantastic game, aside from what seems like possibly a bit of lag every once in a while on my 5s. The quests open every 10 points you get on endless mode. I wish though once you beat a quest you could start from that level on endless mode. Also the ground moves up and down when you jump/duck which is kind of annoying.

The double 'i' is actually not a good idea right now because if you search for 'Shiift' on the store it auto corrects to shift behind the scenes so you get 100s of results.

Hi, guys. First of all I'm sorry for opening an old topic, but I felt like I needed to apologize for the lack of tutorials in my games. I came across this article randomly browsing around, but anyway it's a nice feeling to find the game you made in must-have freebies section.

Yes I know the game feels a bit laggy from time to time and now I know what should have I done differently, but I don't think I'll be updating Shiift any time soon, because I make these quick fix arcade games just for fun because I enjoy the process of making them so much.

All of my previous games are available for free now, so if you don't mind lack of tutorials in them, you can check them out.

FYI: I'm currently working on few more games, for example, in the next upcoming game you'll be able to test and compare your reaction speed to random different single/multi finger gestures with other players.
