Squareball 2.0 with Endless Mode out NOW!

Hello everybody!

We wanted to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Squareball with a substantial update. Squareball 2.0 features an all new Endless Mode, which we think you'll like quite a bit. Endless will evolve and expand as we go along, so please try it and give us feedback.

Have Fun,
Drömsynt

Love the game but I've always felt like the touch controls weren't sensitive enough. It also needs a flip screen option so I can play with my headphones on (the music is too good to be muffled by my palm)

Thanks for the update...Squareball is an exceptional game and doesn't really need an endless mode, but it's great to see one nonetheless. That said...it could use more variety, and perhaps more difficult gaps and obstacles and a less oppressive timer. Just my opinion--but it's the difficult maneuvering and not the beating the timer that makes Squareball a classic. Of course I realize this is a lot more difficult to implement into an endless mode.

This is an interesting update, I hope some more work goes into refining the endless though, as it doesn't have the same spit and shine as the rest of the game. Nice to see it though, the game already felt very complete, and was one of the defining games on the iOS.

Wondering whatever happened to the user-created levels update? I remember hearing that levels were very simple to create, and that an editor with the ability to upload and download content would be eventually implemented into the game.
