Hi everybody!
We would love to hear your feedback on something.
We showed the local multiplayer mode of Mimics at various festivals and conferences and kept refining it based on the feedback we received there.
Now the game also includes online modes, that you can play with your (far away) friends or strangers over the internet. This is way harder for us to test, so we'd love to hear what you think if you're not familiar with the game or tell us how you perceived it when you played the game.
Thank you!

This is a fun and well presented game, which had our family all pulling silly faces and laughing. Kids loved it.

Options allow you to save your face-pulling photos in game, in gallery or not to save at all.

The online mode requires a Facebook logon (Didn't try this), while local 2-player mode and party mode don't.

An advert appeared at the end of the (free) game, but it was pretty brief.

Had a couple of glitches: -
- Application commonly exits/crashes entirely when hitting the 'return to menu' button.
- Camera can rotate and get stuck upside down / sideways when trying to take a photo.

- Add a photo saving option that saves BOTH the person and the face they were trying to imitate in the same picture.
- Add a one player (local) option, without any scores.
- Save photos even if the game isn't played to completion.

I added the appstore info and displayed a larger embedded youtube clip for this thread. To see how I did that, just quote the top post as if replying to it.

Thank you Red1!

The issues you had should be fixed with the latest update
Some additional notes:
The photos are also saved of the game isn't played to completion, you have to leave via the Pause Screen though in order to trigger the saving.
There is a Share Screen in the online mode that saves both the imitated picture and the photo in one image. We will add this to the Party Modes in the future!
We're also currently working on a way to allow playing the online modes without Facebook.
