Why did I read "Testis" and think this was about testicles with cute faces. That theme and name cant be a coincidence.

You may have got an idea there, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't get Apple's approval

Tentis - A New Numbers Game! (by oh beautiful brains)

Hi TouchArcade!

My name's David and I created this little game called Tentis. First game!

What's Tentis?

Tentis is a cute mobile puzzler with numbers, for iOS (and Android too).

Yet another mobile puzzle game. Why should I care?

Tentis is different. It has something new to offer, both in mechanics and content. It is very likeable and cute, wants you to touch it; so that your beautiful brain can enjoy some sweet puzzles with no candies.

How is it different?

Tentis is not your typical matching game of a brainless timefiller. In Tentis, you will need to have some agency of the numbers. The game will challenge your brain. I made this game because I believe that we all have beautiful brains in need of good care and stimulation. Hence the studio "Oh Beautiful Brains".

Don't be afraid however, the learning curve is very smooth. Indeed, there is no tutorial, because Tentis takes you right on very simple puzzles to make you understand by yourself the rules of the game, bit by bit, and enjoy your aha moments. A lot of care has been put into the progress of the levels with a lot of inspiration from the great designers of old, so that no one gets lost, and everybody can enjoy learning and solving. Like a Mario Level 1-1 experience, but with puzzles.

Who's the target audience?

Anybody who likes number games like I do, like Threes, Drop7, and the likes. I am actually a fan of Threes and it was one of my inspirations. Also, since Tentis is also a match-3 game, it can be a refreshing take for match-3 afficionados, by mixing the classic formula with numbers. In general, Tentis is for puzzle lovers!

Ok, I love Threes and/or match-3 games. You got my attention! How do I play this?

0. You should not need an explanation, you just need to download and follow the path. But in case you're curious or can't do so right away:
1. The basic mechanic is to match 3+ cards, but instead of swapping candies or jewels, we add numbers. You can add any adjacent numbers, up to 10, which is the maximum. Hence "Tentis".
2. The numbers can have special identities, that will alter the layout of the board with extra challenges. For instance, there is "the Masked" who will hide his real number behind a mask. "the Optimist" will increment his number every time you make a move.
3. 2 modes for 2 playstyles: 145 puzzles with unique solutions, and the endless minute mode for those who want to play faster with an adrenaline kick to the brain.
4. The second mode also offers depth through power ups that are needed to progress. There are 100+ powers to collect that boost your score and/or alter mechanics. For instance, "Match me if you can" will give you back more time per match, and "Elsa, what did you do", will freeze the timer, but will also substract 5 seconds off your timer every time you make a move.

Wow this sounds fun, good, and deep. How long have you been working on this? Is this really your first game?

This game offers hours of play, and it is not a throwaway minimal game, as we see a lot nowadays. I have worked almost 3 years solo on this to make it perfect. First release was 5 months ago, and I'm at my 20th update (1.4). Also, believe it or not, it is my first game ever, and I have done everything, from the graphics to the animation to the programming to the voice acting. For the pleasure of all brains! I certainly hope you like it!

What about business?

The game is Free to Play, with ads, and a premium option to remove ads. Also some IAPs. I gotta eat, I'm human like you

If you have any other question, feel free to ask!
