3 Unreleased iPad Games REVEALED - Which do you want to see?

Hey there TA'ers.

It's Alex, creator of SpringFling and co-creator of Super Ramen Brothers.

I have been working on 3 iPad games, all in the > 50% done state, that I would like to bring to 100% completion, but have not been able to find the time.

I would like to know what YOU GUYS, the gamers, would like to see. Please let me know what you think of each game, both in its current state, and its potential, and which you are most excited to see released on the iPad. Suggestions, comments, additions, praise, and insults are all welcome.
Please note, I have a separate thread for the iPhone/iPod versions of these games, so please comment on the iPad releases of these games. iPhone thread located here: iPhone/iPod Touch Unreleased Games Thread

Do you think game A should have 'Feature X' added, or should I drop one certain aspect of game B? Please let me know. Many hours were put into the creation of these prototypes, so I want to work on the one that will excite the most people. I understand many gamers are not fans of certain genres, so please mention that if your comment applies. If you say the puzzle game sucks but are a notorious puzzle game hater, that is not much use to me

Here are the games:

Name: 3d Picross HD

3d Picross is an adaptation of the classic Picross puzzle genre (a mix between picture and crossword) with a mind-bending 3d twist. Carve away the fake blocks to reveal the solution below. Over 100 levels with 3 difficulties planned! Rotate the puzzle to view from all angles with this challenging puzzle game.
Video: Requires Quicktime
Video 1 - Gameplay footage - Glasses puzzle

Video 2 - Gameplay footage - Pipe puzzle


- The UI shown in the video is incomplete, so you can ignore the layout and look of the buttons.

- The menu system shown in the video is also placeholder

Name: LineBloom HD

Collect flowers in a zen-like mashup of line drawing and high octane physics gameplay. Race against the clock to collect as many flowers as possible. Transform the world as you play to unlock the secrets of LineBloom.
Video: Requires Quicktime

Sorry about the framerate in the video, my machine was having trouble recording it. The iPad plays the game at a smooth 60fps.


- Levels are randomly generated as of right now, and there is only one pickup (the flower).

- The gray L-brackets that are strewn around the level are placeholder and I plan on replacing them with some kind of collide-able objects that transform when you hit them. Suggestions are more than welcome as to what to place here.

Name: SpringFling HD

The casual vertical platformer that rocked the iPhone is back on the iPad in full HD glory. Soar through more levels, with more crazy powerups and of course, even more silly hats to equip. Online leaderboards and randomized levels keep the game going long after you've told yourself you should really go to sleep.

- Graphics are being completely redone for the iPad version.

- Ignore the checkpoint platform seen at the end of the video, it hasn't been re-done for the iPad.


Well, there you have it. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I was always a fan of SpringFling, so that would be my choice. Would love to see a two player split screen mode added though.

I think line bloom could be the most appealing, though spring fling is more of a safe bet for fun.

Going to vote for 3D Picross, myself. Although frankly, both the iPad and iPhone are in dire need of any kind of Picross, 2D or 3D.
