Fridger - (now with weekly levels!) - Opening Sale!

Hey Everybody!
It's out!

Fridger - $0.99 Opening Sale

Fridger is a fairly simple to play puzzle game, yet difficult to master. (Say the people that've tested it) The goal is simple get Fridger to the Ice Cubes. The catch, everything moves when Fridger moves. Not to mention, there are various obstacles in your way. I've designed it so that levels shouldn't be THAT hard, but might be quite difficult to solve using the minimum number of moves.

[Copy And Pasted from iTunes Store, since it's not showing properly]
-------------------------------
------- OPENING SALE!!! ----
-------------------------------

Fridger is a new puzzle game that involves sliding Fridger and everything else at the same time.

While the game may look simple, it's hard to master. Each level has the minimum number of moves required for it. (The best possible)

Features
- 60 Levels
- Touch or Tilt controls, it's up to you!
- Wide Range of Levels from easy to hard with varying obstacles
- Fun quirky animations
- An illustrative art style

Note: It can take a computer upwards of an hour to solve some of the harder levels, see if you're smarter and faster than a computer.

----------------------------------
Updates
- I already have a "daily" puzzle feature just about ready to go, but I need your feed back as to whether levels are too easy/hard. I plan to have the ability to upload your name/score and award prizes (hopefully)
So please let me know at
josh(dot)yaw(at)gmail(dot)com

And if you like puzzle games - Check out my first game: "2 Block" and see what people have to say about it



Here's the promo vid:

Future Plans
I plan to include more levels in a future update, but also a daily/weekly online feature that will allow you to connect to the net and download a level (with no minimum moves listed) so players can upload their name and score and see how good they are. I would like to hold competitions with prizes, but this will really depend on if I can get some money to offer prizes. Regardless, I'll put a daily feature in though.

Note:could someone test if it's showing up in iTunes for me with an actual description. Just says "test" to me

Anybody play this yet? Looks cool but it only has one screenshot and I couldn't really make out the game play in the video cuz it didn't like complete a whole level. I got the sliding and obstacles slide with you stuff but not what to do for completion etc.

This looks like it could be good but it is hard to tell from the short vid and the screen shots.

Is there a tilt only option, or do you need to swipe? Also, is this similar to anything out there?

you can tilt or swipe...the game's premise is that you have this creature Fridger you need to get to a hole. Each time you give him a direction to go he slildes until he encounters an obstacle and the snowballs move with him. It's a puzzle game where you're trying to get Fridger to the goal in as few moves as possible. There are other obstacles as well and the puzzles get more complex as you progress in levels.

I played/tested it before it was released. The core of the gameplay is like Shift or Ivory Tiles but with more things added in. To me the only thing the game was really lacking was sound. I think the gameboard could've been made bigger in relation to the iphone screen as well. But overall it is a fun puzzle game.
