***Game Description***

Using the multi-touch controls of the iPhone, take control of the Norbs; tiny nanobots with the sole purpose of conquering the mazes and puzzles which make up their world.

The Norbs can change in size and colour by separating apart and merging with one another. The player achieves this by pinching the screen - a crucial maneuver from which the game derives its namesake. Players will be familiar with performing this action in other well known iPhone applications.

Features:
Intuitive, enjoyable puzzle-solving in a colourful yet simple package
Stylised visuals complement purposeful design
Unique gameplay centred around multi-touch interface
Suitable for all, from gaming beginners to veterans
72 levels as of update 1.2 (with more in-app purchasable level packs available)
Original music and sound effects from award-winning, talented composers
Regular updates, new levels and other DLC options
Openfeint Leaderboards and Achievements
Colour Blind Mode for those with difficulty distinguishing certain colours

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

This is a great little game, I just wish it had a few more levels! Hopefully they'll release some level packs in the future!

Oh & STP Tim, if you read this, I have no idea how you ran through the tutorial levels in 57 seconds!?! I'm trying my best to get there, but I'm still double your time

Ah what the hey, even though I suck at puzzlers, I just bought it mainly cause I'm a sucker for colour based games.
