I think its all cool now. For the record I am the owner of that site.. I spoke with Arn personally and cleared the air of any of the past issues that we had.

Though I think our sitename is still in the banned list of word due to some people I had working on the site a year ago who spammed the hell out of it here and get us banned.


AS for the game I'm going to post a little of the review here about it since more people do visit here than at my site. Here is a little of the review

Quote:
In Northern Lights the objective of the game is to collect all the pink dots on the screen before your power drain. To accomplish this you must navigate your ball around varying obstacles scattered throughout the games 44 increasingly challenging levels.

In one regard the game plays very much like a Peggle clone albeit with you controlling the arch, speed, and direction of the balls trajectory. To play a user swipes upwards from the bottom of the screen towards the pink balls. You will notice that there are other colored balls on the screen as well. Each of these other balls has a different property assigned to them. Some provide additional scoring bonuses while others will propel or trap your ball.

In the higher levels new and dangerous obstacles will be presented that will push and pull your ball off it’s path or in the case of a black hole simple swallow your ball whole.

The second game this reminds me of is Block Breaker. In that game as well as Northern Lights you will want to get get your ball above the obstacles to allow your ball to ricochet above the obstacles thus generating additional points and clearing out larger sections of the board at a time.

As you progress you will gain the ability to fire a laser shot. These shots are activated by holding down on the swipe section of the board for a few seconds until your laser is activated. Once activated you can direct the laser and when you remove your finger anything in it’s path will be destroyed. However activating the laser will consume massive amounts of your power bar so use it sparingly.

Really love this game. Its like upside down peggle. I was hoping Pop-cap games would release Peggle HD but since they haven't so far, Colorsound suggested Northern Lights HD and it was a great suggestion.
