Hey Pete! Good to have you back! :-)

Looks worth a try for free, then we'll see what that "additional content" is all about. Man, my puzzle folder is about to explode with these types of games.

I like it alot (and that is a Statement with all the block type puzzle games recently.

Its easy fast paced and fun.

Few things:
- app crashes if you change your Name in the options
- moving blocks comes momentarily halted if you score a New highscore which is a annoying
- the German Translation is really bad, please provide an option for other languages

Hoping for a fast update really Liking the Game, esp. For the phone.

Hey thanks for the quick reply. I have to correct myself btw: when entering a name in the options the game completly freezes and i have to manually close it (duble tap home button and close the app). And reopen it again.

How do I send you crashlogs ? Never dones this before. Thx.

I'm liking this so far.

Regarding the power-ups: I've managed to obtain one yellow star and one green bomb and am 73% of the way to the blue squares, but before I use them (and potentially waste them) can you you explain what they do? Thanks!

I felt that it's hard to move the block on the diagonal way. I often miss it, so I lost 2 move to take the block to the place which I want. Do anyone have the same problem?

I use iPhone 5C, iOS 8.1.2

BTW, the game is great. And congratulations for your game on Best New Game, Simon.
