Tried a few levels and this game is pretty good. Play would be similar to pool and the controls are excellent. Playing this on an iPad and it looks very nice.

Any reason this game has a crappy looking low resolution icon?

A retina icon is a no-brainer. Every game should have one. I'm viewing it on my iPod touch 32gb w retina display

The game appears to be retina (with the exception of some blurry text)

Needs a high res icon

Nice game though

@ Bazooka...glad you like it. Hopefully you find some good challenges in there!

@Colorsound. A retina icon was included in the app...we will look into why that is not displaying on Retina devices. There shouldn't be any blurry text. We will look for any blurred text. If you can't point us into the right direction...we will be sure to get it updated in our next update...which will be very soon that will include iPad support.

[EDIT] Just remembered...the help overlay graphics may be a bit blurry. We did not use retina resolution for those overlay graphics...in order to keep the app bundle/download size a bit lighter.

@Booch...The app is not yet resolving in iTunes...as its only been out about an hour as of time of writing. You will be able to find it via the direct link in the OP above.

Keep the suggestions coming! We want this app to be amazing...and you feedback is incredibly helpful.

I'm not sure if its an issue with the iPod touch icon, maybe the iPhone icon is ok?
(are they different icons within the upload/program or is it automatic?)

Great job on the game and it's nice having you around here posting often

We have an icon problem with another app submitted in the last week or so as an update. We think maybe something changed with Apple that we didn't know about and we need to track down why our retina icons aren't being used. The icon is showing up blurry and shouldn't be. We will be sure to get it fixed sooner than later.

We are glad you all are enjoying the app and we will stick around here for a while and continue to harvest any and all feedback we can get. We want the game to be great...and FUN!!!

Hi Gabrien...

The game is basically a series of 100 different mini gardens with target orbs (balls) on the field. Your shooter (the green orb) is then aimed at the other balls and you must knock them out of the garden. You use the power slider to adjust your shot's power and then use the crosshairs to aim where to shoot. Then you press the shoot button to fire your shot.

There are 3 game modes. A freeplay mode lets you practice. A shot challenge mode gives you a specified number of shots to use and you must clear the garden of orbs in that many shots or fewer. The fewer shots...the higher your score.

In time mode...you have a few extra shots but you must do it quickly before time runs out. The goal is to collect all 300 elusive crystal orbs that are awarded for how well you "beat" a level without dying. If you shooter goes out of bounds...you lose a life.

The shot challenge is more of a puzzler type of play where the time mode is all about speed and action. Time mode is harder than shot mode...but both modes are a lot of fun.

We plan more gardens in the future updates with lots more levels.
