hello, gordon here the developer of helicoid. thanks for the post.

just to let you know i submitted an update to the game which removes the status bar that shouldn't be there (& wasn't in debug build) and makes the icons for itunes prettier, so ignore that pesky status bar for now if you can

would love to hear your thoughts on the game if you've picked it up!

Is the sound about the same as the earlier demo video?

Hi drelbs - about exactly the same, yes. It does complement the game pretty well when actually playing imo.

Hi the icon is supposed to have a band of white on it yep - altho not get cropped off like that ive submitted an update to fix that.

The game is a continuous highscore challenge, so there are no 'levels' as such, but u do level up as u progress if you catch my drift - there are 16 different skins to be unlocked.

Hi, Gordon. I can give you my thoughts on your previous game, Lilt Line. It's f*ing amazing and thanks for the update with additional content.

Now, to give this one a try...

For those that aren't a fan of the dynamic soundtrack, you can use your iPod music.

Unfortunately, for me, the game freezes every time (unless there is a strange
pause feature). I'm on an iPhone 4, iOS4, and I rebooted first.

Sorry everyone, launch fail, i have removed the app from sale and will launch properly when it is right.

Was crashing on 3gs devices essentially plus a couple of other bits.

Apologies again, it will be back up soon.
