Cirris - the classic game of bricks for iPhone and iPod touch


I have developed my first ever game for iPhone and iPod touch called Cirris.
It would be really great if you can review it and leave a feedback.

Also if you can help me in Digging this!

Feedback and suggest are most welcome.

A UK iTunes reviewer says it's a good idea but unresponsive, which results in frustration. What's your response to that?

Nice game... needs some work though...

As people have mentioned on iTunes this is a nice and simple game, well done, but it definitely needs some work on usability. It should flow much better with the touch/swipe because right now it feels really forced and kludgy.

I'd suggest tweaking it and hit me up, I'd gladly test some betas for you and maybe be able to give you some advice on this.

I've developed a bunch of apps myself and published a handful for other friends, and I give advice to many people on this topic.

Generally I suggest EVERYONE develop apps in the "WWAD (What Would Apple Do)" mentality. Apple does things THE best as far as UI and usability is concerned. Look at their apps, how they work, how they flow and copy it. I admit they don't always get it right the first time, but they do updates, and usually it is usually vastly better than anything a general person or programmer could come up with without a team of testers and UI specialists.

I agree that its little unresponsive at the higher levels (8, 9, 10) and I am working on to fix it up. Otherwise, I think there is no major issue with the game. Let me know what you think about it.

IMHO, it's similar to Bootant's blockstouch 3d, but instead of basing it on Breakout, you're basing it on Tetris.
