App description: The puzzle game to top all puzzle games. Demon Drop is set to take the world by storm. An intense new challenge.

You can move, shift or spin blocks as. Arrange them to align with other blocks on top of monsters. If you can get four or more of the same shade in a row, BAAAAM! They disappear. Destroy all of the monsters and you progress to the next round where things get even more difficult. Sounds easy? Demon Drop is a game that is simple in execution and yet amazingly difficult to master. Addictive gameplay as you have never imagined.

Hey Joe! I loved Dr. Mario back in the day. Seems like a neat twist on that game. Any plans of adding Game Center for achievements and leaderboards? It would be a good fit for a game like this!

@Anotherkellydown I've planned that, but this strange gamecenter Bug since iOS9.0 was across all my devices, so I wern't able to test / implement gamecenter. Luckily, the latest update fixed it for me. I will add it with the next update.

@Repulsa I've played around with lots of different control schemes. You have to do swipe (and hold) gestures to move left/right/upwards or touch/click to rotate the blocks. I will add an alternate controls scheme with OnScreen-Controls in the next version. You were not the only one who complained about the controls, while others liked them.

Control system ruins this game

If the developer can improve the control mechanism significantly, this game will be worth the price of removing ads. It's barely playable with the current control scheme.

Today I've completely replaced the controls with a more precise "OnScreen-Button-Touch-Scheme". I think it's much better now.

I've also improved the scaling algorithm, so the pixel art doesn't get messed up and it looks much more clean now.

I have already submitted it to apple, so it should be live in a few days.

Thanks for all your feedback. It really helps me to improve the game.
