I'm happy to announce my latest game Match Panic. It's a quick pick-up-and-play arcade puzzle game with Game Center leaderboards/achievements plus a dozen unlockable characters.







Match Panic has been submitted to Apple and will be available early-to-mid June.

Looks nice. I really want to learn how to make pixel artwork. Don't have PhotoShop so I want to figure out how on Gimp.

Waiting for: Airborne Troopers, Mini Motor Racing. Minisquadron 2, Tweetland, Car Jack Streets 2, Drive Forever, Turf Geography Club, Junk Jack!!

It only goes as fast as you can make matches, but speed is the key to getting a highscore and hitting the higher levels. That video is me playing in the iPhone simulator using my Wacom stylus - it can get faster on an actual device with two thumbs

Cheers! But it's not on sale yet I submitted on Sunday so if everything goes smooth it could come out June 8 or 9. Depends how long it sits in the review queue.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments

Love the look of this, especially the crazy fast pace and all the particles flying everywhere.

As I said on twitter... the basic idea reminds me of the bob-omb sorting minigame from Mario 64 DS (though in a different form, with more elements). I loooved that minigame, that was my favourite part of M64DS. Gets hectic. That + more than two kinds of cutesy things to sort + powerups = win.
