Ops... looks like quite cool game release during this day, our Rooftop Escape is quite tiny.. :P

However, it's another very simple game from Colorbox, we're improving daily on our game, and we're looking for feedbacks to polish more on our later products as well as the update on our current games.

Would love to try it out if you have any Promo Codes available for it, and could try to leave a review

You can't leave reviews for games you've been given promo codes for.

looks very cool...stylistically looks inspired by Canabalt ... with the whole dark feeling.

Nice comic book art style.

This is quite my game.

This isn't true. However you aren't supposed to post on this forum asking for promos.

Yeah, this sadly has been the case. As a chatty promo hoarder myself I can confirm I've not been able to leave reviews for my last several promoed games, but, as this policy change was enacted so quiet and sneakily, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple silently reverses this ruling at some point in the future due to all the flack they've gotten for this stupid policy change.

Edit: Weird, it looks like I WAS allowed to post a review for this game so maybe Apple has already changed their mind although previously received promo codes during this "dark time" still won't allow me to leave reviews.
