I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

Thank you!

They really got this physics puzzler right...

1. No timer
2. No penalty for experimenting
3. Lots of different items (eventually) to play with
4. A lighthearted sense of fun

This is a far cry from stressful puzzlers like Master of Alchemy and the like.

I've had a great time just tinkering. Exactly what I was hoping for.

I'm *really* glad to read that, Ubisububi. That's exactly what we intended when we created the game: No stress, no penalty, just explore, try things, and have fun.

Glad you're enjoying it!

Absolutely fantastic game.


Question...I have signed into GameCenter but after each level it asks if I want to learn more about GameCenter. This message shows up at the bottom of the screen and I see no way to get rid of it.

Thanks!

Hmm.... So you logged in to Game Center in the game and you have the "Share" button in the level completed screen, but you also have the "Learn more" panel? That's a bug :-( I suspect restarting the app will fix it though.

If not, can you take a screenshot and send it to us at casey@snappytouch.com? Thanks!

You're right, restarting the game took care of the message.

It definitely has! We're about to break into the top 100 apps in the US App Store. That's only 3 hours after the release!

Thanks everybody for your support!
