180 (UPDATED v1.1) - Puzzling Evolved! ($0.99) Like Magical Drop, Tetris Attack

180 for iPhone

180 ($0.99)- iTunes Link

Created by developers who've worked on some of your favorite games (Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Neverwinter Nights, Might & Magic)

Featured in New & Noteworthy in several countries! (Puzzle, Arcade)
USA, Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Botswana, Bulgaria, Chile, Germany, New Zealand.. oh heck a whole bunch of places. I am not going to write them all :P

Description:
The rules are easy. Line up two or more pieces of the same color, and shoot a third at them to clear. The twist is, each game piece has two sides, and you can flip them 180 degrees any time you like. Never has a matching game given you such control, you can make up your own combos! Develop your own techniques and be rewarded with HUGE scores!

Play it however you like! Go slow and easy, or set up masterful combos and huge chains - just don't let the pieces reach the bottom line, or it's game over!

3 MODES:
-ENDLESS - the ultimate challenge, how long can you survive?
-SCORE ATTACK - a 90-second rush for points!
-DROP ATTACK - rapidly hit the "add" button for the most lines!

FEATURES:
- OpenFeint achievements will challenge the best players!
- Online leaderboards - how high can you get?
- 4 different characters to cheer you on!
- Listen to the soundtrack, or your own music!
- Comprehensive stat-tracking system
- Colorblind-friendly
- Comes with a free grilled cheese sandwich

If you can beat my score, then you are the boss! Come get some!

Looks very graphically polished, you've obviously put a great deal of attention into the game. I'll be sure to try it out and I hope it sells well for you.

Promo codes

ok we got a couple of promo codes to give out for this here game.
But what you rapscallions don't know is, you got to work for it. I just about killed myself making this game, you have to at least give a little back if'n you want it for freeeeee.

So here's what you gotta do - I am gonna give away 4, maybe 5 codes in this thread. You want one? I want a picture of 180.

Huh?

That's right - you have to post a picture in this thread, of something related to 180. Use your imagination.. a cash register ringing up "$1.80" A freeway sign "180 miles left to Las Vegas." A picture of 180 jujubee's. A picture of your friend PLAYING the actual 180 game. Hey, you even can draw it, but if your picture is crappy then.. sorry! "No code for you!"

Here is an example



I just Google'd and found that image - if that's all you do, then you better dig pretty deep to find one because if you post something that I can find in just a minute or two, then it doesn't count

So go on. I will hand over the codes as soon as I see something I like - if there's a lot of interesting things that pop up, then maybe I can give a few extra away. Let's see what you guys can come up with
