I know lol, getting repetitive...

Years ago, the GC icon actually appeared on the game's iTunes page, but that was for a brief moment. Still in my denial phase about GC points. If this gets good reviews or is in new and noteworthy I might pick it up.

No GC, only a login acknowledgment when you enter the game. I didnt see any achievements.

You do however play it unlock worlds. Game is pretty unique, not your typical match three.

Basically you have preset patterns you need to fulfill while dropping down flowers to make the patterns.

Really nice game, fun and some progression involved. For the price a steal!

Thanks dude, and yeah there is Game Center integration. We have achievements and leaderboards hooked up at the moment. You currently unlock an achievement for each world you solve. We still need to work out some kinks with our leaderboards but that should get fixed in our next update.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful game.

However, looks like the codes in that thread were used up since yesterday.

I am utterly confused about the game's 3-star system. Can you elaborate?

In particular, what determines how frequently (and when) a "flower" appears in a new character tile? It seems to me that these special character tiles are the ones that I need to match, but their appearances seem random (at least to me). Also, how many of these character tiles with flowers do I need to collect to win a level with 3 stars?

Lastly, there appears to be a deliberate imbalance in the numbers of different colored character tiles. Often I would finish matching the number of character tiles for one color but waste many matches while waiting for a character tile of a different color to be made available to be dropped onto the map. Is there some "absolute" minimum of moves for each level that represent the best possible or optimal solution?
