- LabyMania - *WIN* promocode and get your name in LabyMania!

Hi everybody!

Good news about LabyMania! iPhoneAppReview gives thumbs up with a rating of 9/10. LabyMania is selected for the "Hidden gems" list on this forum. And finally: LabyMania FREE hits app store.

To celebrate the release of LabyManiaFREE, I thought of a fun way to share ideas. You now have the chance to put your mark on LabyMania!

Here's what you do:
- Get LabyManiaFREE (it's free you know!)
- Play and enjoy it, spread the word!
- In this thread (not as PM, please), post suggestions for improvements to LabyMania. Examples could be "undo-button", "I want more levels", "OK button is too small" - anything goes! If your suggestion is already written, feel free to write it again - similar suggestions means they are important, so I need to know!

Here's what I do:
- Evaluate ALL suggestions (and I will be grateful!)
- Select one a day as the best one. If your suggestion is picked up, I will try to fit it into LabyMania in some form. Also, as a "thank you" and "thumbs up", I will put your name in the About section of LabyMania! Either full name, username, alias or whatever you want. Also, you get a promo code for the full game.
- Select a random suggestion (or funny remark about the game, App Store review, ...) from this thread and reward it with a promo for the full game.

So… Get LabyManiaFREE now, enjoy it for a while, and post your suggestion here. Thank you for making LabyMania better!

OK, I'm still stuck on 7/9, but here's my suggestion so far: make the square drop areas a little more lenient - my iPod is in a case, and I'm finding it difficult to drop pieces on the sides - right now they have to be totally over ghe arrows - I propose that they'd be OK if they're slightly over the existing square a bit. It should still be obvious what the intended move is.

Love the themes - playing with space right now...

My suggestion is still to include an undo button for the last move. Perhaps use them sparingly per level so they are not abused (only x number for level for emergencies only). Also the little lights on the bottom that indicate the order in which to reach a goal could be a tad bigger to see - and if the colors are brighter it would make it easier to see what the next goal should be. Of course, more levels!

Great suggestions both of you.

NEG: you will be pleased to know that I am almost done with the undo functionality. It will not be a button, but a leftward swipe gesture that triggers it. I will see what to do about the hard-to-see lights.

Prelbs: I never thought of that! I don't use a case, so I obviously didn't experience the same trouble. Duely noted!

In about an hour and a half, I will round up the days suggestions and you will hear from me again...

- Thanks, and keep them coming!

Hi guys! Thanks for your suggestions. Today's winners have been contacted with promos and whatnot.

It appears that a level editor would be a very good idea. It would also take some time to develop, but let's see. Again, if you are worried about replayability, there is always multiplay, and the option to take on the artificial intelligence, LabyManiac!

Undo is definitely coming!

Music and more themes are also a way to go, so that is now added to the list of to-do's.

Thanks again - keep the suggestions coming, you can still get your name in the game and win promos!

I'm sorry, but everytime I see this game's title I think it's about Gynecology.

Uuuh, ok... I don't know what to think of that - but you may just win yourself a promo for that remark! That'll teach you

But... Why does it remind of that? Just curious!
