ScribBall is Here!

And it's for $3.99. Anyone planning to review it? The video before made it look interesting...

You beat me to it! I guess it's good to see the thread started from somebody else though.

Extended Gameplay Video (No talking in this one )

Can't wait to see what you guys think!

The App Store was acting flaky for most of the day. Links into the App store didn't work among other things.

It seems that they've fixed it now.

Good game.

scrib-ball is an interesting game.

four or more touching, explodes the balls.

be sure to jiggle the iphone to move the balls around. (kinda not mentioned in the intro).

when you pop a ball (to get balls together), you add time.

when you pop (explode) chains (touching of 4 or more balls) you get time back.

unique play. recommended.

*first time i played i didn't know i could jiggle the board to move the balls. lol.

i will be looking forward to new games from these guys.

btw adding more sounds would be neat. change the sounds as the score increases etc. please put up a worldwide score-board.

nice work.

What is the aim of the game? I bought iSplume and got disapointed about there being no unlimited or survival mode, just 20 stages of reaching a set goal in the shortest time. Is there any casual play mode that letīs you play as long as you like in Scrib-ball?

There's a video on the developers site, showing a full game:

http://howlingmoonsoftware.com/iPhoneScribBall.shtml

As previously mentioned, groups of 4 'explode' and give you more time. If you 'pop' single balls randomly you will lose time. The time is indicated by the coloured bar at the bottom.

This would leave me to believe that it is in fact an unlimited game.

Thanks for the info, will strongly consider getting it as soon as my current games go stale. Tried the mac-version and liked it and guessing it is even better on the iphone when you can shake it up a bit.
