App description: The greedy Qrons who live on the planet two orbits down want to invade your tiny ore repository planet. Fortunately, aside from being greedy, the Qrons are also cowardly - instead of invading themselves, theyve chosen to dispatch their drone landers instead. If they can land ten drones on your planet, interplanetary law will allow them squatters rights to it. And you cant let that happen.

To stop the invasion, you have hacked into the drones network, allowing you to tap into their camera feeds one at a time. If you can match the feed that you are monitoring with the correct drone, it will self-destruct. Do that correctly enough times, fast enough, and the Qrons will give up and look for another planet to pick on. Fail to do so and the Qrons are moving in.

Tac is like a matching game mashed up with MineSweeper then rendered in 3D and sprinkled with fun. If you like quick-play puzzle games and space drones, youre sure to love it!


A new randomly-generated playfield with every game for unlimited replay value.

Iconless tap-and-drag anywhere controls for intuitive play.

Crisp, smooth, beautiful 3D graphics that take full advantage of the high-resolution screens on the iPad1, iPad2 and all Retina-enabled devices.

Deceptively simple gameplay with two unique game modes: Blitz Mode for quick 2-minute time-killer games and Marathon Mode for longer play until you die games.

High scores for each game mode are saved to your device and to Apple Game Center.

Tac is a universal binary - buy it once and play it on your iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.

Note: Tac is meant for play on 3rd Generation devices and higher: iPhone 3GS and 3rd generation iPod Touches, iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2.

Hi! I just launched my first game on the AppStore. It's a simple, quick-play, time-killer, actiony, puzzler game in 3D called "tac".

Its iTunes page is at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tac/id431948313?mt=8.

It's a Universal binary too, so you can play it natively on all three castes of iOS device.

I'd love to hear what you smart people think of it.

Here are 5 promo codes to get things started:


Thanks in advance for your feedback!

HD Gameplay Trailer:


Almost 15 Minutes of both Game Modes. Well let`s just be Honest - As you can see i had, even after reading the Manual, not really a Plan how it works at the Beginning and then, in the third Round it makes "Click" and i totally get drawn into the Game and understand the hole Concept and how it goes and...

I started to like the Game.

While the first Mode Blitz is Easy and you only should play it to understand the Game Concept the second Mode Marathon is like the Hardcore Mode from Diablo II. One Life...If you pick the Wrong Camera, your Dead and the Planet is Lost. As you can see i don`t have yet the Skill to go over the third Camera (Marathon) but i still like the Game because i really have the Feeling that with each try and fail i get Better and Better and...well i guess you get the Idea.

I am pretty sure that we will see more great Games from Frank so just to don`t miss any of his upcoming Games in the Future i did join his Twitter Channel @gigaplay .

Thanks for the video, Sanuku!

Yeah, it's not as easy to figure out (or explain) as I had hoped for. I'm glad you were eventually able to play though and even enjoy it a bit.

Time to make another game now!
