Hello Everyone,

I'm very excited to announce the release of Tipping Point, my latest iPad app. Tipping Point is an immersive, photorealistic adventure game with challenging puzzles, an interesting story and original music.

Some of you might remember playing the the Flash version of Tipping Point online. The iPad version continues and completes the series with a new chapter 5 and an epilogue. All of the graphics have been enhanced and are presented in higher resolution on the iPad.

Congratulations! I saw this and I love the idea of the game beginning with me watching TV eating a bag of chips! That's me of course. I do that all the time! Great concept.

Good lord, it's beyond me how some things just go completely unnoticed around here. Played around the first 3 minutes of Chapter 1 on PC and I'm so buying this in a moment.

Brilliant! Absolutely loving this! Having fun. Intriguing. No spoilers PLEASE. That's me in the game. Ha ha!! Unreal!!

Amazing some of the games coming out on ipad. Awesome! I've had more fun in the first few minutes than games I've played for hours.

No IAP very good but this is worth more much more. This is intriguing.

Worth getting for the classic Atari 800 and what looks like a copy of Ultima III.

Hi Everyone. I so happy to hear that you're enjoying Tipping Point so far.

retrogamer83: Most of the screens have some type of animation / movement going on, but you do move from screen to screen similar to Myst.

Don't forget to leave a rating / review on iTunes when you get a chance.

Hi Mene, glad you're enjoying the vintage video game references in Tipping Point. There are more as you get further into the game (including another "game in game" puzzle).
