Knotmania: a knotty physics puzzle game[Now in TestFlight Beta]

Hello, everybody! I'm very excited to announce that we're starting beta testing of our new game: Knotmania - physics based puzzle game.

It will be much appreciated if you could help beta testing it via TestFlight and post your feedback here on this thread.
PM or send an email to loana@2think.it if you'd like to join our beta test.

Knotmania is a innovative-stirring puzzle arcade game where you untie the knots.
The game features for now 55 rooms, each flavored by an unique abstract geometry concept, atmosphere and music. Try to untie the knots but be careful, these are special strings: once you touch them, they come alive. They are born together, but need the break free.
Every room and knot combines stunning visuals with captivating gameplay.
To give you an idea, here is a short gameplay:



Features:

Use simple gesture to manipulate the strings:
  • swipe to slide a string
  • pinch to separate them
  • long touch to drag it
  • two fingers swipe to rotate it.

Every time you play, the strings react differently!
Time is limited!
Use fewer gestures for a better score!
Compete with your friends on GameCenter in 3 Leaderboards: Score, Levels, Golden Tangle!
3D Audio Landscape

The game will be a one-time purchase with no ads or in-app purchases.
Release is planned for fall 2015.

Compatible with:
- iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6 Plus
- iPod touch 6th generation
- iPad 2, 3rd, 4th generations.
- iPad Mini, Mini 2, Mini 3
- iPad Air, Air 2

Can you untie them all? Time is running out.
Have Fun and enjoy some screenshots from this mania!

The game is freaky, the ropes almost seem alive like snakes but the puzzles are pretty cool so far

Good game so far. It almost reminds me of balloon animals! Lol
I feel that sometimes, when I am taking the puzzle apart, it's a little slower then what I am trying to do. This might be purposeful.
Definitely unique and I like unique.
