Gomi - New game from the creators of Trace

Hello TouchArcaders,

We first announced our first game Trace here, and we are happy to announce our newest game, Gomi!

This is a preview video of our new game. There is a lot we did not show, expect another video in a week or two showing off the other features of the game.

EDIT: There will be enemies, abilities, bosses, and multiple game modes. This is just showing off the basic gamplay mechanics.

The world has been overrun by civilization. With the expansion of mankind, the amount of preserved ecosystems is dwindling. It's up to the gomies to make the world beautiful again!

Gomi is a unique game that gives a new meaning to 2d platforming. Explore the unique and challenging stages, and save the planet from being covered in parking lots!

Features
- 8 unique worlds
- 4 levels and 1 boss stage per world
- 3 missions per level
- 8 characters with different abilities
- Tons of achievements
- Over an hour of original music
- 8 minigames
- Online leaderboards for everything

Coming Soon!

Will be a paid app, but price is undecided.

This looks like a combination of Loco Roco, Super Mario Galaxy, and I love Katamari.

EDIT: pante, you took my idea (sort of)

Haha that's pretty neat. It reminded me of Loco Roco, Katamari, and Rolando right away. :P

Lol thats exactly what I was thinking(im sure more ppl will too)

It feels like I could get lost playing that game, the music is very calm and the gameplay doesn't seem like it would have you going crazy trying to collect everything or get that score. Looks very enjoyable, can't wait to see what it's about.

edit:This might have a hard time going through apples review its teaching kids to eat pollution and the people who pollute lol. Good luck with the review.

Playing: HookChamp.WheelersTreasure.BaseballSuperstars2010. SniperVsSniper.RealRacing.
Wanting:Command&Conquer.Madden2010.
WaitingList: SpaceTripper.RoguePlanet.MiniSquadron.R-Type.

Looks good for the most part - kind of repetitive. Pricing details?

Elmo Roco looks cool but are there any bad guys in it? It seems like you can never lose...

Developer, I have a couple questions:
1) Why did you make Trace free?
2)What are the benefits of making a free game with no ads?
