Trouball [SUBMITTED]

TROUBALL - COMING SOON!
'Trouball' is a brand new puzzle game which I hope you all enjoy and like the look of. Myself being the developer I am happy to take critisims and use your feedback to improve the game to the best of my ability. Your feedback will help get the features you want into the next version. The game has been submitted today and will hopefully be live by the end of the week.

UPDATE 1.1 in development already! This will bring a collection of new features, including:
- More levels
- More gameplay elements
- And much more...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Your job is to get your 'TROUBALL' out of an enclosed and complex environment, while trying to battle the effects of gravity!

Pit yourself against the obstacles to make your way through each puzzle level, picking up power ups which could either help or hinder your progress. Can you make it out without getting trapped?

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

FEATURES:
- 30 Challenging and puzzling levels to conquer
- Ranging difficulty from easy to hard
- Sequentially unlockable levels
- REGULAR UPDATES to include MORE LEVELS and FEATURES.

Can't wait for the gameplay video. This looks cool. How does it control? Is tilt an option?

Video is now in the works. the idea is to hold your device as if you were using on-screen joysticks, but instead there are directional buttons. There is an up button on both sides allowing the player to go up, left and up, right. This means you don't have to get two fingers over one button. I think you will find that once the game is in your hands it is a lot more comfortable to control than it may first seem. As many of the testers had discovered.

I chose for now not to include tilt controls as they seemed inappropriate for the game after some quick tests. However, after its release I may spend some more time on tuning it and giving the player an option. Once Trouball is released players can say how they feel and if they would like it I will do my best to for fill that.

Ok I whipped a teaser, shows off some of the beginner's levels and gives a glimpse of a variety of gameplay elements. Sorry for the quality. Trouball is now 'In Review' by Apple so hopefully it will be available soon!
