App description: Will you be capable to solve all the mysteries and puzzles across a massive labyrinth with over 300 challenges ?

AfterLoop's core mechanic revolves around pushing blocks to reach the hard-to-reach stars and make a path to the exit, but as you travel deeper into Pr8's world, new and more challenging puzzle elements will be introduced.

Those elements include blocks that can only move in certain directions, blocks that are linked and move in tandem, special tiles that unlock paths, and more.

Help PR8 to solve a wide range of puzzles with an incredible variety of challenges, game modes and patterns.

Stuck in a loop since over 50 years, PR8, an utility robot had begun to despair. One day, these endless patterns began to change, these eternal corridors shifted to amazing structures, opening new paths towards answers and perhaps an exit.

It's time to discover what's after the loop!

It's a fairly interesting puzzler, with some nice graphics and animations and some clever gimmicks on the standard Sokobon formula.

That said this is one of the buggiest apps I've ever played. The touch controls are very temperamental and you often will find yourself tapping the wrong thing (on an iPhone 6s, maybe an iPad would have less problems but I weep for those on regular size phones). The in-game level selection is very odd and confusing (I mean not using the menus, using the paths). There are a lot of skins to buy, but strangely it says you don't even own the starting one.

There are four ways to play each level; one of them, Collect Mania, has problems. The score pieces you have to pick up will block you from seeing what types of blocks you are pushing. You CANNOT retry any of these levels if you make a mistake; if you do it will not allow you to pick up any of the score pieces you previously got. You have to "Exit Level" then choose the level again in level select for each attempt. Retry level works in every other game mode.

The final oddity is that some levels are IMPOSSIBLE to complete 100% without using a rewind mechanic. That's fine, but you only get seven rewinds and have to watch videos to get more. So you might think you didn't find the correct solution to a level, but in reality there is no correct solution and you just have to watch an ad or two to "cheat" your way through.

Hmm I have to agree. I don't like the way Collect Mania requires rewinding. I think two out of the first 15ish levels needed rewinding to solve.
However the actual concept itself is interesting enough to me that I'll stick with this one but probably just in 3 of the modes.

Hello there,

I'm one of the two developers of this game, thanks for the constructive feedback

@Tinsel, we have fixed the issues you've mentioned. You weren't supposed to have 0 time coins, that was an issue that we somehow missed. Same goes for the level reload in collect mania mode. All fixed

Unfortunately, the rewinding feature isn't working as it's supposed to be. Time Coins should not be empty at the beginning, it ended up confusing people and appearing as an evil-ad-button. And if it weren't for these comments we would've probably missed that part and realized it too late, so thanks a lot for the post

Time coins are now fixed for all new users in the next update.

We've also revamped the level Selector so that it's less confusing.

Our fixes along with some new improvements are in review in the App-Store, so expect an update in the upcoming 4 days !

Don't hesitates to reach us for other ideas/remarks at studio@exiin.com, we really appreciate that!

So what happened to afterloop on iOS? I know I had downloaded it a while ago, and really liked it, and now its not available in the us iTunes Store.

I had to restore my iPad.

The downloaded app was even removed on my pc.
