Greetings everyone,

My name is Alexander and I'm a newcomer to these forums.
I thought I'd do an announcement about my first application that is available at App Store.

This is a game that has been around for many years in "board form", played it a lot as a kid.

So what is it?
It is a traditional board/puzzle game with the goal to put numbers in the correct order. Like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. You do this by moving one brick (each brick contains a number) at a time.

The game has 3 board sizes: Tiny (1->8), Normal (1->15) and Big (1->24).

And a nice feature of the game is that you can stop at any time and then continue where you left it.

This is how the normal sized table looks like in game:

And the game itself can be found here: AppStore link
(cannot be found through searching atm for some reason)

On the technical side:
The game is developed with pure OpenGL (ES) and mostly C++, used ObjC basically only for setting up the view and reading input. Been a fun time to code this, but even for a simple looking game like this it took a lot of time.

Since this is my first public game I'm happy for any constructive criticism

Thank you and thanks for your private message again ^^

I find it weird that it hasn't showed up yet as searchable, only the direct link works. Maybe that's normal.
Maybe my update is done before it's even searchable
