Kicks butt!
I absolutely love this game. It is so easy and addicting. Good way to pass the time. I also love the look o the game. The moving background can get to you and screw you up if you focus on it too long. Clever

You have a few minutes to kill, so you pull out your iDevice and start up a game of Boogie Woogie. Tapping your game piece, you start climbing but theres a big yellow block in your way. No problem, you just press down on your man and release when the resulting arrow is pointing in the direction you want to move.

Hey, youre doing pretty well. Youre getting higher and higher on a Piet Mondrian inspired background, moving easily around obstacles and feeling good about how youre doing. Oh, oh! Theres a red block moving down the screen towards your man. Think fast because if it hits you, youre dead.

Boogie Woogie is a simple, one-button game with a single goal see how far up the canvas you can go without getting killed. The button is anywhere on the screen you want it to be and timing is everything in this game. Youll need to stay alert to meet the challenge.

The games background is influenced by the abstract minimalist, Piet Mondrian. Yes, culture and gaming comes together in this addictive application to provide you with fast fun that travels with you on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

Just hold your finger down anywhere on the screen and a pointer rotates around your cube (game piece). Where the pointer is facing when you let go is the direction the cube jumps. Like we said, simple. Well, sort of.

You need to stay alert to the potential dangers in Boogie Woogie. Yellow blocks are obstacles that you need to move around to avoid and the red blocks kill you. So have fun but keep your eyes on the screen and be ready to jump out of the way fast!

Dont be concerned about getting bored with this game, you wont. There are different levels for variety and you can even brag about your games with your Facebook and Twitter friends. Heck, why not challenge them, see which of you can get the highest score?

Mondrian's paintings served as inspiration in the original prototype for the game.

It's also influenced the design process by reminding us to keep the game minimalistic because that's the simple beauty of his works. That's the same kind of simple attraction that we tried to capture with Boogie Woogie.

I'm liking it so far with my only whine being how the game's name is handled on the iDevices...it shows up like Boogi...ie (or some other really poorly cropped nonsense). Maybe for the icon you could just call it "Boogie" or something?

That will do it. I like how "B. Woggie" almost sounds like it could be somebody's name.
