Along the way you will encounter logic filled puzzles wrought with a host of hazards, including electrical beams, burning coils, acid droppers, angry slugs, and more!

EASY NAVIGATING

ACHIEVE GREATNESS
☞ Over 20 achievements to unlock to keep you thinking outside (and inside) the box.

Wooh! A first article about The Line HD v.2.0 has been published on DIYgamer:

Quote:
One of Shangai’s best mobile indie teams, Ant Hive Games, has reinvented its crazy fun action puzzle game, so dubbed The Line HD v.2. I’m calling Ant Hive one of the best because The Line was good enough to make me play through it without having to write a review for it.

Thanks to them and be sure to check the article out :-)

If you're giving out promo codes I'd love it if you could PM me one. Like I said, I already bought the game, and think it's absolutely fantastic, and I'm betting my sister would like to try the game too. If you have an extra promo code I'll pass it on to her. If not, no worries, I'll probably end up gifting the app to her, but if you've got free codes I'll certainly put it to good use. I already left a 5 star review on iTunes. This game is unlike any I've played, great work!

When I was a child, I saw a rerun of a famous cartoon called, The Dot and The Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics. The artwork was simple, without being simplistic, keeping the viewer interested in the story. When I saw your game's artwork, I had a flashback to this very cartoon -- and anything which reminds us of a happy childhood memory, is certainly to be praised.

Should you have a promo code, I'd be delighted to accept one, but thanks to devs for making them available to all.

I really like the simple but stylized graphics of the trailer and the jazzy vibe of the music. I am looking forward to the promo code giveaway; otherwise I guess I will have to buy this one :-)

Looks very cool, but I'm having trouble visualizing what's going on in those screen shots. Is there a video somewhere?

I've added the game to my wishlist and will check it out as soon as I get the chance.
