Looking forward to your impressions. This game looks quite intriguing. I'll check back in this thread in a few.

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

Game Impressions

First off thank you Bumbleduck for the code!

Played a few levels and game plays like Qix, line areas to unlock paintings, which are quite beautiful. There are bots to take you down each with its own mechanics to interrupt your progress of unlocking the art work.

Controls seem repsonsive, and the first few levels are easy to get you accustomed to the game.

There are equipment to unlock and purchase with in game coins to assist your progress.

First issue, a game like this should be universal, so others can experience the game on a iPad, seems like this would have built for it.
Second issue, Menus could use. Little "pizzazz" seems a little bland, in my opinion. Especially on a game that is based on art.
Final issue, controls should have more options, say swipe or possibly directional buttons.

These issues are minor and do not detract from the game, overall worth the price of $1.99, maybe universal build to sweeten the pot.

Overall I do enjoy the game, especially Qix tyoe games, the unlock able equipment and story will keep you from getting bored, lol.

Great job and with a little enhancements, could be a hidden gem.

thanks for the feedback! the game is actually 99% ipad ready, just need to test it a bit. next version will be universal.

RE the menus, i actually made them Simple as a choice because there is so much stuff going on. easy enough to spice em up a bit, thanks for the advice.

overall, i'm happy to hear its fun! i'll take a menu appearance criticism any day!!!! thanks again!
