hdn - Bit flippin fun!

******* WHAT THE WORLD IS SAYING *******

The fact that bitFLIP is flanked by a killer soundtrack is just icing; it will appeal to any genre fan (like me). 8/10 (Impressive), Levi Buchanan, IGN.com

it makes itself essential by being intuitive, refreshing, and altogether one big synergistic delightbitFLIP does an outstanding job of taking an established concept and overhauling it to a near-unrecognizable degreeconsider bitFLIP an essential download. Cole Jones, The Tilt, 1up.com

"[bitFLIP] is a puzzle game that's really well suited to the iPhone .. it's a trip. Nice one to sorta zone out and not think for a while." - Justin McElroy, Joystiq.com

Mixing interesting puzzle mechanics, great music, a truly unique (and often beautiful) visual presentation, and a variety of gameplay options, I can confidently say that there's more than enough enjoyable gaming to be had here to warrant your two bucks. - Ben Gilbert, Joystiq.com

Although essentially a match-three variant, bitFlip brings a bunch of style and some welcome innovation to the mix. (4/5 stars) - Robert Corra, 148Apps.com

The fact that I have been coming back to it every couple days another iPhone puzzle game in an endless sea of iPhone puzzle games means I like what I see. (4/5) - Joe Fourhman, Aeropause.com

Agreed =D ... I think it's a more dynamic version of another game here, "Flipside" I think? It does offer more game modes and I think extends the lifespan of the game somewhat. I've had a chance to listen to the accompanying music but hopefully that'll happen tonight.

However... I do think that they could polish up in a number of areas; firstly, the tutorial text looks horrible - surely the developer must have noticed this - it could be much smoother - "anti-aliasing" I think it's called? Secondly, the 'widget' that flips the 'bits' on the main playing field, well.. the same here, it has these horribly jagged edges to it which I think is a shame as it detracts slightly from all the hard work that clearly the developer has put into it.

Overall, it's a game I would recommend though, hopefully I'll also get a chance to multiplay with another and see how that pans out. Now, just hoping the developer can sort out the graphics in those two areas..

...awesome, nice to know the developer's here It's a great game but I feel the graphics is just a little too "sharp"... if everything was given a very slight 'glow' then it would fit in to much better with the music and the feel of the game.

Lookin' forward to the update mentioned!

Yeah the "switch" was a challenge to pull off as we got ready for release but it something we want to improve on.

The update is going to bring online leaderboards and iComplishments (achievements) and some other fun goodies.

Keep the feedback coming we are all ears.
