It's dark. You're falling. You have a few seconds to twist and turn yourself into position. Can you make it? Now, how many can you get in a row?

Skybox is a game where you play the part of a puzzle piece pilot, trying to fly through matching holes with precision and speed. It's such a simple concept, but it's challenging to do and thrilling to master!

Skybox 1.1 was just released on the App Store - it's a simple arcade game that's partially inspired by this crazy Japanese game show:

Youtube link | Pop Up

Controls are simple - you touch and tap your way to get your puzzle piece ship to fall through the obstacle wall. Gravity pulls you down faster if you are successful, and you slow down if you hit one. Play both Marathon and Time Trial mode and compete in AGON leaderboards online and offline. It's pretty much a simple time sink that can blow up into marathon game sessions while you try to beat your best score.

There's a gameplay video from the original 1.0 version, which I need to replace, but it might give you an idea of the way the game works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I__wjRcTukM

I got some feedback from early reviews, and waited until I got a graphical overhaul in 1.1 before posting here. More updates with game mode additions are on the way, but I'm open to suggestions and would love to hear what the toucharcade community would like to see!

Played this some time back and I had enjoyed it for a while. It's the kind of small casual games that get frantic quite fast and last only seconds to minutes before you die. Good time waster for say, WC time.

Hey Squeaker, thanks for posting your impression. I'm the developer and I'm glad to have brought you some fun "WC times." I have to admit that I got my 104-streak on easy marathon mode while I was getting some uh, seat time.

I might hold off on Skybox updates for a bit as I'm currently deeply into work on a Monster Boxing game... I think I posted a thread somewhere on TA forums about it. If you have any suggestions or recommendations on what would make Skybox better for you or pick it up again to play some more, I'll be sure to keep it in mind the next time I work on it!
