Good to see the developer start a thread!

Have really been wondering how good this is.

What are the 3 game modes by the way?

There was this thread started earlier where I gave my gameplay impressions:

If you've played the also recently released Compression or maybe any of the Dr. Mario Clones you'll have the basic idea...but even then there is a little bit of a different twist.

To clear pieces there must be a continuous link of 5 or more same colored segments but they need not be linked in a straight line, heck, the game even counts diagonals so as long as all 5 or more same colored segments are touching at least one other part of the group, they'll disappear in a cool firey neon explosion!

In the one default mode I'm playing there don't appear to be levels nor does the dropping rate speed up on its own (as far as I can tell). My best guess is just that the pieces dropping get a little trickier over time (like where I last save my game this morning I seemed to be getting a lot of squares which, since left over segments don't simply fall with gravity, can cause the screen to fill up a bit faster than just via the falling pieces with less segments).

As you play you'll earn tokens which you can spend on 6 different abilities such as a wildcard piece, a bomb piece, and a few other nifty effects to help you out.

Good fun and highly recommended!

(P.S. As I'm still in the midst of my first game I'm not sure if it has only local or online score tracking).

We have 3 modes:
1. Newbie - where we have a 12х18 field, 5 chains links to destroy and slow speed
2. Advanced -14x21 field, 6 chains links, average speed
3. Geek - 16x24 field, min 7 chain links and faster speed

Also you can switch between graphics skins in realtime without restarting game.

A simple tweak that would go a long way is having black segments spawn more frequently in general in all levels and then even more so over time.
