WOW! This is going to be my new thing, I can tell.

EDIT: It reminds me of Oddy Smog and Fozwot, that can never be a bad thing.

There is a trailer on their site and it does look a little like Sneezies.

Those screenshots are a little old. We forgot to update them on the app store.

New shots and a video at http://www.splodegame.com

Edit: here are the new shots (we added some color to the game since those shots were taken).

Removed screenshots from this post and added in the first post.

I've bought and played. I can tell you it's very similar to Sneezies, I'm probably not the best person to ask about these type of games. I'll have to pass it on to my girlfriend Tomorrow when she pops home, as she's played almost all these types of games.

What I can say is that it looks beautiful, the music is relaxing and uplifting. Stages start very dark and brighten up with sunlight and flowers as you pop the required amount of Splodes.

In fact, it's almost a music App as well as a game.

Those graphics, universal and by the makers of Doom... I was sold till I saw it was another sneezies remake. I love sneezies but have six or more clones....
And who chose the voice over for that trailer?

Okay, I'm always a bit leery of buying Yet Another Clone, but the developers are good, and the presentation looked nifty, so I bit.

Yeah, it's pretty much Sneezies/Chain Reaction/etc with the same sort of goaland added score attack mode and stuff, at least so far. But the holy crap. The presentation is outstanding. It's universal (iPad/iPhone+Retina), uses OpenGL, and really does an incredible job with the eye candy. It isn't so much about glittery explosions, really -- though you'd think so -- as the explosions aren't really spectacular. It's just ... everything.

But then I suppose given that this genre doesn't really offer much in terms of gameplay that's diffeent from its peers (other than the chance to score bonus touches to finish off a level), you've really gotta polish the presentation to a mirror shine, and is so polished it would make Mr. Clean weep.

Eh, for a buck I can deal with derivative gameplay just for something this obscenely pretty.

agreed, looks extremely polished, extremely cheap, and universal, effort has to be rewarded, buying.
