Karnival + Lite

Hi all,

I'm proud to announce the release of my new game Karnival with publisher Hands-On! It just started to appear on the App Store minutes ago. Here is the synopsis.

Born with the arm of a goat, you've always been labeled a freak. Realizing you need to view your curse as a gift you decide to start your own Karnival. Traveling across the land, you gain the loyalty and trust of other "freaks" and together, you bring thrills, wonders, and tasty treats to entertainment-starved towns.

Game Features:
* Tycoon style gameplay - manage your rides, freaks, shops and games
* Handle ticket and vending prices, # of tickets per ride, salaries and maintenance
* Earn and spend fortune and karma in your quest for fame
* Design your Karnival layout in multiple environments across 15 towns and 20 unique maps
* 5 classic carnival mini-games including cola ring toss, Whac-A-Mole, and balloon pop
* 30 unique rides, shops and freaks including the thrilling Spiral Coaster, tasty Candy Yum Yums, and The Human Bug: Arack the Eight-Legged.

Game Tips:
* Pinch and zoom for different perspectives on your Karnival
* Select your own playlist for your freaks and guests to enjoy by tapping on the phonograph
* Vadoma gives you a free tarot card reading daily which may offer boons or curses
* See where you rank on the worldwide fame leaderboard
* How you set up your Karnival matters - some attractions' influence extends further than others
* Anything unlocked in Career play becomes available in Sandbox play
* Attraction attributes are mystique, fun, scare and thrill.

It took myself and Ben Chavigner (the artist of Karnival) 5 months from start to finish to create this game. We really hope you enjoy it! Any and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Also check out my previous game, Hospital Havoc, if time management games are your thing.

Looks great, but management games are not my thing (they remind me too much of my regular life).

Did anyone try it out?
