App description: Eklips is a minimalist puzzle game about making squares around a dot. Seems simple enough, but is it really?

- Easy to learn, hard to master unique gameplay.
- Indefinitely playable, if you can!
- Two difficulty modes, two leaderboards.
- No ads, no IAP, no time limits or game-hindering annoying stuff.
- Made by small indie developers. This is what we love and I hope we can share our passion with you, too!

UmutD's comments:
Hello everyone,


My name is Umut Dervis, the developer of Eklips.





Eklips is a minimalist puzzle game about completing squares around a dot.
It's like tetris with a completely new gameplay mechanic,
as a result it is harder and requires more strategical thinking as you go by,
because of it's gameplay space.





Basically all you can do is to drag the pieces along the borders.
You can also flip asymmetrical pieces by sending them to empty walls.

You also have one-level undo, which is not only helpful for correcting mistakes,
but figuring out how game logic works (when squeezing outer blocks when a square is completed) and planning ahead,
because sometimes completing a square would put you into a harder position,
you have to wait for the right time.












- It is easy to learn, but hard to master.
- Indefinitely playable (if you can, of course).
- It has two difficulty modes, normal and hard.
- It has beautiful music & soothing ambient sea sounds.
- There are no ads, no IAP or that kind of stuff.



... You can grab Eklips from the App Store:



Sorry if I'm accidentaly breaking any TA rules,
I'm new and appinfo tag just didn't work for me (probably because app is new).

I can answer your questions if you have any,
and please feel free to write your opinions.

Thank you for reading.

Thanks! if you decide to get it, please don't hesitate to write your opinion. With all the crazy games around, I guess it's hard to get any attention at all

Hi Umut,
looks like a game for me, as I like Tetris based games.
Will support you and try yours later!

Much success...

Thanks Sugimulm, great to hear that!

...

I can't get a hold of the press, may be we seem so small, or perhaps I am not pitching well enough and game gets lost in all those new releases. It's a shame because I really like this game (since I took a lot of time to perfect it). I know I know, I'm the developer and my words probably doesn't count, but I know people can get really into it once they start playing.

It would be really great if you tell people about the game, of course if you like it And I'm all ears if you have anything in mind, thanks everyone.

Just got 600 points, I never really liked Tetris, I think this game is more fun than tetris ever was, for me anyway.

Roger-NL, very good especially for a new player, if I manage to add achievements in the updates, perhaps I should start score-based ones after 1000 points, because obviously you're gonna pass it very easily in the upcoming days!

Testopi, wow great scores, it's really interesting you made better at hard, perhaps I should have made the hard mode harder?

Thanks for the comments guys, I'm very glad you're liking it. Please feel free to speak your mind... and if you have some spare time, every review in app store is appreciated, I would really love to hear opinions from more people.
