Thanks. It would be interesting if you could show more of the game, like first show a few levels of game play to get to understand the basics, then show the Options menu, how many levels and chapters there are, Game Center achievements, leaderboards and then some more "in-depth" continued game play.

This game reminds me a lot of Portaball, which is a really good puzzle game and not an easy one at that

Saosijs, I just did some research on Portaball. The game is no longer available on the App Store. Have you ever completed it? I recall that it was a fairly difficult game. Can't help but also notice some similarity with Exit Strategy.

Oh, I didn't know that. It simply has been on my iPad since I got it. However, I was forced to stop playing when an upgrade of iOS (7) made it unplayable (at least for me). I opened it today again and now (with iOS8) it works, so who knows I'll give it a second try these days

Let me know of your impression of that game. I am thinking of giving Exit Strategy a try if you find the game to be similar. I might also have a copy of Portaball in one of my iTunes backups. As I recall, Portaball has a lot of time based mechanics and is quite unforgiving if you want to make a run in challenge mode.

Exit strategy is a puzzle game with similar mechanics as the Portal.
You have a moving ball, and there are blocks on the level and you need to continuously activate start and finish portals to make the ball travel around the level and collect all the stars on it.



As you can see above, the blue shimmer marks one end of the portal and the orange shimmer marks the other end of the portal.

My main problem with the game is that being a puzzle game I want to take my time and think what to do next. But the game is kind of time based as the ball is always moving and if it hits any white block without a portal the game resets itself :|
So basically I am just hitting around on the screen trying to place portals not because I want the ball to reach someplace but because I want to save it from crashing. Played it for like 15 levels then had to leave because it was more of a time arcade than actually a puzzle (But that's just my opinion).

Many would also like a time constrained thinking puzzle

It had a good feel to it and the tutorial levels were gearing me for something good until the whole time thing came into the picture :|

I like the idea, but it's too fast for my tastes. Maybe it's because I still need more coffee this morning, but I've also never been a fan of wildly tapping the screen.

I would like this at the slower speed as a causal puzzle game, but as a faster arcade experience I'm like -meh-. There are way better games to play when I want to actively game (as opposed to entertaining myself through commercials).

Oh and $1 for a power-up for a single 30-40 second level is INSANE. I might as well be playing the penny slots in Vegas: more gaming for my money & the chance to win some of it back.
