Subatomic v2 out now, $1.99 -- many thanks to TouchArcade!

We've just released a major update to Subatomic, based quite a bit on feedback from the TouchArcade forums. We've taken nearly all the advice we received here when the game first came out (many thanks especially to Acidbottle, djflippy, jinjin5000, and RagerX) and factored it into a massive restructure with a ton of new features:
  • Background music -- new, custom soundtrack or your own playlists
  • Online leaderboards and achievements via OpenFeint
  • More levels, with more hazards -- total of 31 levels now, up from 14
  • Can jump around to the various "zones", so you don't get stuck at one level
  • Fullscreen (no clock bar)
  • More levels in the "free" version, plus a non-free version for those who don't like to pay for an upgrade in the middle of play
  • Oh, and iPad support! All for the same price ($1.99), no repurchase required

It's out now, for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. For all those already installed the Free version, don't worry, an update is working its way through the approval process now, it's just taking longer than the "premium" version -- you'll have all this new stuff in a matter of days.

Thanks again for TouchArcade's incredible help with developing this game; it was in many ways created by this forum!

Don't push around somebody your own size. Push around something 1000000000x smaller instead. And perhaps save the human race in the process.

Welcome to the world of Subatomic. The moves are simple: touch near the particles to push them away from your finger -- the closer you touch, the harder you'll push. The goal is even simpler: separate the red particles from the blue, guiding each into its matching Reactor Core. Generate matter/antimatter rocket fuel to help launch humanity's survivors to safety, while earning points to move you to the next level. To avoid a meltdown, just make sure the Cores don't run dry.

Sound easy? Sure it is. Until the radioactive particles start decaying. And the particles start to annihilate when you make a mistake. Before long you're dealing with particles pairing up, or rogue Reactor Cores drifting around the arena, or shifting gravitational gradients, or a menagerie of other unexpected hazards. That's when things start to get interesting. Just keep that zen-like cool and you'll be fine. The fate of humanity depends on it.

Subatomic is an addictively simple game of tactics and reflexes in a surreal microscopic world. Spend ten seconds or ten minutes at a time honing your skills in this physics-based realm where harmony and chaos are separated by a touch of your finger.

Update

Quick update -- the "free" version is in the store now, so anybody who downloaded the original should have an update waiting for them.

Looks interesting but I couldn't find any videos, not even on your website. Got any handy? Would especially like to check out the iPad version (don't have the hardware yet, so can't download the free version)
