Official TextTwist Launches...

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=302579841&mt=8

I'll give my impressions in a minute...

Ok I found the most retarded bug? Or maybe it was intentional, not sure... When playing a standard Twist game, when you push a letter a Sally's salon ad shows up, or any one of their other games?! It is really freaking annoying, and I don't see how they thought is was a good idea if it was intentional. Now it doesn't do it on the basic puzzle, and that's the whole reason I bought the game was for the basic play... It is a really nice TT game with good sound effects and decent enough visuals. It does what it does and is Actual Text Twist. but if you like to play in twist mode I would say don't bother untill they quit with the horrible subliminal advertising... Pics in a sec...
[Update] It's currently not on the app store, I'm assuming the bug fix will follow shortly...

It's actually pretty nice, the graphics move in the BG as you play and the music is pretty chill...

I have to agree with superbad. It does look cheap and boring. I like textropolis way better.

Here's the review I left in Itunes... "1 star = What the heck?! It would be good if they didn't shove advertisements in your face when you play on twist mode... It's not even playable for me, and a waste of money right now... They better fix this or I will not change this review... DO NOT BUY THIS!"

Ads on a pay-for app... man, that's just nasty. I can understand a "more games" section you can click on, but DURING the game? Cheeky monkeys.

Most likely a bug that they will fix very soon.
