We have taken in all the comments and are in the process of acting on them now - the first thing we did was to drop the price to 99c so we are at the same level as the competition. Some people mentioned the control and targeting system so the games developers, the mighty Tag Games, are addressing those issues as we speak.

So, thank you, we listened and have changed things so we hope you enjoy the game.

TUMBLEBUGS arrives on the App Store

It is me, Stephen, from Connect2Media, publishers of TUMBLEBUGS, live on the App Store today!

The game is a great twist on the classic 'match three marble shooter' genre which sees you saving bugs from the evil dominion of the Black Bug Army. It's had well over 35 million plays on-line and is a casual gaming classic.

So what makes me think you should try this game?

It is great fun - pure and simple, beautiful gameplay, vibrant graphics, great progression and a quirky sense of humour.

It has quite a pedigree too, having been created by casual game masters Wildfire Studios and developed by Tag Games (of 'Car Jack Streets' fame).

So please - give it a go and, as ever, let us know what you think as we are more than happy to listen to what you guys have to say in order to make our games better and better.

Tap the direction you want to shoot. Since the shooting beetle or whatever it's called is stationary, I can't really think of any other way to shoot. Tap the direction you want to shoot the marble is pretty much how the game plays.
