They may have copied the concept, but the graphics stink and there are only 30 levels. Pass.

Graphics do look terrible! Even if the game is excellent, I can't go past how pixelated everything looks. iDevice has potential for much better graphics.

30 levels? lol. That's like 5 - 10mins in ragdoll.

Maybe they should give this one away as a lite version and if it does well then make one with more levels and better graphics and polish.

Just an idea

I'm the author of "pin blast" .
I'll upload new screen shots, the bad pixelation is only in the screenshots, I probably used to low quality for jpeg images.... The actual game graphics are better.

I'm currently working on more levels, but will take a look at polishing the graphics as well.

Currently the game runs at 60 fps, I could sacrifice some of this for more detailed graphics/ anti aliasing.

I agree, these graphics wouldn't even pass for a demo version of the technology where you have placeholder graphics, they "stink" as you said. Also, no interfacing, wth?

Pin Smash now free for a short time!

Thanks for the feedback.
( as I had almost no sales I assume (hope) the feedback was based on the screen shots only :-) )

Pin smash is now free for a limited time.
Please give it a try and give some feedback on the game.
I'm working on more levels.

Free is doing a lot better than paid :-) Had only a few sales at 1 $, and now about 1400 download a day for since I made it free.
