Landscape? Nope, designed to be played in portrait. Blocks would be much smaller and hard to interact with

So this is basically a free-to-play version of Slydris by Radiangames? I suppose there are worse games to be "inspired" by.

Can anyone tell me at what point Radiangames' back catalogue disappeared from the App Store? That's a true slice of App Store history that seems to have disappeared without trace - they aren't even showing in my purchase history..

mr_bez, I wish we knew about Slydris before, it seems to be still available on Android I will check it out when I have access to an android device. Thank you very much for letting us know. Slidey is not "inspired" by Slydris, (OMG even the name sounds similar) but if I knew about it, I would certainly examine how it solved some UX stuff like how to highlight the tapped block, or row clear effect. The mechanics (like how the game ends, where new blocks come from) look quite different though, as well as the theme and feeling. Please try Slidey and let me know what you think about our game.

As per the other question it seems like they deleted App Store account entirely, or did not renew the App store membership at all. But since when, I can't tell. Some premium market data service (like appannie) account owner may look it up and tell us

Shame about landscape. Slydris is great, but it is also more of an action puzzler where this is not (from what I could tell with the trailer). So, quite distinct.

I actually like this idea quite a bit. Had it been just a pure high score chaser without all the extra nonsense. What's with the gems and power-ups? And no way to remove ads? The ads don't even let you X out until they trick you into first opening the App Store.

Anyway, I was enjoying the core concept, but I'm afraid I'll be deleting it. Never heard of Slydris and now disappointed I seem to have missed out on a premium version of this concept?

@AppUnwrapper thank you for the comment, glad to hear you like the core concept. "No ads" option is on the roadmap and will be available in about 2 weeks. About the non-skippable ad, we found the ad provider and silenced it, it is supposed to be skippable. No one should be forced to watch an ad for 30 seconds unless they are willing to.

Boosters are there to help when player is stuck and needs some extra help and they also bring a little action (like sequential combos). Gems are used for buying boosters. The game gives gems from time to time during normal game play (sparkling blocks) or with IAP.

It's a high-score chaser with leaderboards. No, you're not the first one to make a high score chaser where you can buy your way ahead, but I see no point in sticking with games like that.
