This is actually a pretty good game. Wonder why Apple let this through... Has EA not noticed yet? They pulled Tris back in the day... Let's see how long this survives.

Hi!

Thank you by me also fearless, I'm the author of Himika!

For the problem of copyright you told however there's no problem. The gameplay is not "copyrightable" for USA laws, the only thing you have to pay attention to is the name (you can't name it TETROS or something like TETR*), the graphics and the sounds that have to be original (as mine are, since the graphics is mine and the soundtrack has been made by an artist my friend).

However: the game is free just for a few days so... Download it for free now and enjoy!!
Ps if you like the game, please help me: rate it on the app store!

Bye
Dave

Ps I know, my english is really bad... Sorry!!!

I guess Tris was pulled do to the about screen thanking people that Apple doesn't appreciate. I dunno... Anyway...

Your game is worth the price and controls really nice. I like it. Love the soundtrack, too. Thank you!

No fearless, thank YOU!

P.S. The version 1.1 has been sent to Apple for the review. There's a new game mode for expert players, really harder to play...

Bye

If you have EA's tetris app, would you say that the controls for this game are better? It's the drag the block around with your finger, right? Is it floaty, like Tris, or exact like Tris? How would you describe the controls?

I have EA's Tetris, Tris, Himika, and a few others.

Himika's controls feel like they are in between Tris and Tetris.

Tetris has that snap to grid feel, Tris (like you said) is floaty and Himika is... a heavy and floaty feel. Almost no float. lol It's hard to explain, I guess...

Two people saying they love it? I'm going in. = )

Now, Mr. mastro35, you'd better not pull some freebie thing where this goes free a day or two after I bought it. Please.
