Hey everyone! Flip is a little game that challenges gravity! Combine tiles and keep the board empty!

It's my first game, and I'll gladly answer any questions you might have about the game, it's development, or me! I joined TA five years ago, and since then have been wanting to create a game, and I finally achieved that!

Happy Holidays!

First of all let me state that I have known DGH on TA for about three years and it's a thrill to see a TA member making the transition to game developer. Well done my friend, I know you have been working on games for years now and congratulations on your first child. I wish you all the success in the world.

Now in an unbiased manner let me say that this is a really great and original take on the "Threes" style of play. Similar enough that folks will "get it" quite quickly and yet not a clone in any sense of the word. I found the tutorial to have a charm and quaintness to it. The gameplay was addictive and it was overall fun to play. Challenging enough but never overbearing. I hope others give it a try and find the same appreciation for it!

Well done my friend!

Congrats on your game release DGH. It's great that you've persevered and got FLIP completed and released. Good on ya. After playing for an hour today, I still wanted to get a better score, and I guess that's the ultimate test of a game.

What's your best score?

2285 so far. My new strategy is to set-up dots for merging, but not to actually merge them. That gives me more control over the board. Still, I'm sure others will smash my score apart.

Andy will make it look silly.

That's a good strategy Red, I've seen some people use that in testing. In fact, there were four or five strategies that I've seen get really high scores. There is a lot of depth in this little thing - paying attention to some of the smaller details might help.

How are you guys dealing with the different colors?

Looking forward to finding out more about this game...especially if it's from a TAer.
