App description: Glide is a fun, addictive puzzle game for all ages. The goal in each level is to simply move the marble across the ice field and into the hole.

So whats the catch? The ball only glides north-south or east-west, so youll need to strategically use the blocks to help redirect the ball. Hey, its a lot tougher than it looks!

The levels get more difficult and fun as you go, introducing movable blocks and switches. And with the clock running, one of the biggest challenges will be avoiding brain freeze!

Get Glide now at this special introductory price!


Key Features:

- easy to learn for all ages
- 24 engaging levels, more to come
- high score chart for best times and least moves
- play music from your iPod/iPhone during game play
- ability to change marble speed
- levels get harder as you go
- switches and movable blocks keep game play fun on harder levels
- created by a high school student - (my dad made me put this in: he wants you to help fund my college education!)

Shill account. No one should buy this game just because of this pathetic charade. Plus the graphics look like crud.

Also, no one gives a flying crap how old you are.

Don't judge a game based only on the artwork. Read a review or actually try the game out before making an opinion.

Plus if you would have read the review, you would realize that the graphics don't need to be amazing for the game to be effective.

I did read the review. And yeah, maybe that's true if there's only a few of these types of games available. But guess what, there are at least 30 great other ones out there, and with great artwork. 20 of which I own.

Look, improve the graphics, take the age out of the title of the thread, and stop making shill accounts. Then I can start taking you seriously, mkay?

I don't understand why you are so negative. I worked 18 months to complete it and I highly doubt you spent more than two seconds looking at it.

Did you notice when Bubble Ball became a hit, it was a huge deal that a 14 year old made it? I don't understand why you care whether I put my age on it. I personally know no developers my age, and I find it interesting when other kids make apps, so I put this on there to let any other kids who are interested in making apps know.

I've seen a few apps designed by kids around here, and to be fair they're generally quite dull because of it. I haven't played this one though so I won't judge... doodlejumper's posts seem unnecessarily harsh to me.

Yeah, maybe I was a bit too harsh... I just hate shills, and I hate devs using age as some sort of a publicity stunt. And when they come together..... well you know the rest.

I'm not particularly fond of either myself, but I try to let the first couple slide, people get excited when they release their first game

Well harsh or not when I see the developer's age in a title thread or app description I usually take a look at the screenshots to see how bad the game looks. After looking at the car crash I continue on without buying it. So at least I was amused again.
