Kraut - sweet flower match puzzle

Just picked up Kraut after hearing about it at TouchArcade, but could not find any reviews or posts.

Review: It's wonderful!



I posted a review at the app store but the short and sweet of it is we were wowed over by the polish and unique aspect to this overdone matching genre. The dev video in the toucharcade article does a good job of showing what a fine game, Kraut is.

Well worth $1.99USD and a nice break from killing things in Alien Mangle.

Best,
tony

Thanks for the link. It doesn't appealing to me though. Sorry.

'Sour fart match puzzle' would sound funnier, but less of an apt description

I hear you about the matching games, but I find them relaxing for casual pick up play on the train without getting odd stares like when playing a killing blood splatter app or fidgety-elbow-passengers accelerometer racer.

Marple, Crossbones and IQ Boost were mashing my mind so I needed a break.
Booty Blocks or Smiles looked promising, but Kraut, featured here, looked unique and quirky.

I was taken by the dev video on how polished it looks and sounds and it really is sweet enough for all ages. Kraut was a great buy to complement Alphabetic which I also got to relax the brain.

It's great to support small devs and good games to boot.

Plus the missus approves!

one Kraut Promo code to giveaway

Good news:

I got a promo code from the dev of Kraut to giveaway.
(I have no affiliation just a fan and want to see devs rewarded for good work)

The first person to pm me with both the name of the player and their highscore (number) in the arcade mode in the dev video wins the promo code.

Hint: arn posted the dev video link in this thread.

Got it?

Just the name and number, simple.

I'll post the winner, tomorrow.

Good luck and thanks for your interest
