CatSpin is a puzzle/adventure game with a whole new spin to it!

Our hero's name is Neko. His cool hat might make him look a bit mysterious, but it's just something random he came up with while dreaming this whole thing.

After running around and playing the whole day, Neko goes home to get some rest. Soon he is dreaming about a world full of lucky coins and he wants to collect them all!

It seems that every time he collects all the lucky coins around, a magical door opens and he is able to go to another room. To his surprise the next rooms also have coins in them. Nekos curious about how many rooms there could be and how many lucky coins he will be able to get.

And that is where you step in! You can help Neko by controlling him through the world! And not only that; you can control the world itself! By rotating it round and round, using either the virtual buttons or the accelerometer, you make sure Neko is able to get to places that he would otherwise not have been able to reach, but watch out! When you rotate, keep in mind that fire always wants to burn up, rocks always fall down and wind keeps coming from the sides; this might just do all kinds of funky stuff inside a rotating room!

After reaching the exit, your progress is automatically saved. The game also keeps track of your 5 fastest times! Try beating the highest score for every level!

Will Neko find out how many rooms there are?

Will he get all the lucky coins?

Lets find out!

Hey guys!

It's fun to see somebody starting a thread on this even though I haven't sent out the pressrelease to toucharcade yet :O

I am the founder of Phure Studios ^_^ I sent somebody a promocode here; he should be putting up a review soon!

We also submitted a Lite version of the game today; it's being reviewed by Apple as we speak! The Lite version is of course free to play and has ten levels and still got both touchscreen and accelerometer controls included!

Please enjoy our game! For any questions, you can always e-mail catspin at phurestudios dot com!

Welcome to TouchArcade Kusanagi!

I just played through the first few levels of CatSpin and I am liking it. The goal of the game is to get from point A to point B by moving yourself and the world around you while collecting coins. Each level has a timer which saves your best scores. There are also two control options: touch or accelerometer.

Have you considered implementing OpenFeint with achievements?

Yes! In fact we are planning to implement online leaderboards and extra content, but right now it already has lots of stuff: 50 levels which you can try with touchscreen first and when you finished all the levels you should try the accelerometer as well! Somehow that's like playing 50 levels at least twice!

When you finished all that you can track your 5 best times on each level and try and beat those: that'll keep you busy for a while! ^^

Personally I love online stuff and I love that we can update our apps, so if CatSpin does well enough, we'll make sure to update it with online leaderboards and achievements!

What I should add is that a Lite version will come out somewhere in the next few days!

It has all the control settings from the full version, but instead of 50 levels, it only has 10 instead.

The Lite version is of course FREE to download!

Please look forward to it ^^

Maybe it's just me, but the graphics in that first screenshot remind me a little of Super Mario World.

Looks interesting. Although...one thing that's important to me is the ability to listen to my own music during the game - is there an option for that?

That's actually a good suggestion and one more reason of why I love being able to update our apps! Expect that to be in as soon as we can!

I'd like to share that the Lite version of CatSpin is available for free on the App Store since today!

Try it out!
