Cool game. A unique spin on Bust a Move. Only problem I see is that while Openfeint is working, game Center isn't registering anything. Achievements unlock in Openfeint but not in Game Center. Hopefully that gets fixed...

Captain Puzzle seems extremely similar to Spearhead Entertainment's previous game Fall of Atlantis. What makes Captain Puzzle different?

It is basically a more casual version of Fall of Atlantis. There is no platforming and just puzzling. It is more intuitive and easier to play for the average iPhone user. A lot of people compare it to Angry Birds... I don't think it is quite the same although it has kind of the same level system (although the level system is more akin to Cut the rope).

Looks like I missed this post.

Yeah, it seems to be a problem. Will have to see what went wrong.

Updating thread with some recent reviews of Captain Puzzle:

http://iphone.nave360.com/2011/02/re...aptain-puzzle/
"8/10"

http://thegamerwithkids.com/2011/02/...zle-v1-01-ios/
"Captain Puzzle ends up being a very solid puzzler with a lot of levels for the price"

http://ifanzine.com/captain-puzzle-review
iFanzine Verdict: A heroic attempt at putting a fresh, fun spin on the Match-3 puzzle genre that impresses with vibrant visuals, accessible and addictive gameplay and a decent showing of levels. Recommended!
