App description: WARNING: This game is hard! If you survive for 2 minutes, you are doing really well.

The creator of Slydris, 2012 iOS Game of the Year*, is back with another elegant and intense puzzle game designed specifically for touch screens. CRUSH sounds simple: Keep the blocks from filling the screen by removing matching colors with a single touch. But the blocks keep coming, and each touch boosts the stack even higher. CRUSH brings you three modes of exciting short-burst puzzle gameplay:

THINK mode: Take a little time and consider what moves to make. Go for massive combos to rack up the best Block score.

REACT mode: Make moves quickly to keep stack low. Survive as long as possible.

CRUSH mode: The ultimate combination of speed and strategy. Go for both large combos and a long survival time.

Choose from 6 recharging powers to use as you please, with each slightly changing the strategy required to achieve maximum scores. The powers also provide a shield against an untimely death, but are destroyed in the process.

CRUSH also lets you select from 3 background color schemes to suit your needs.

CRUSH includes an innovative 4-way UI system and a minimalist art-style inspired by Propellerhead Software (Figure, Reason, Rebirth).

PocketGamer said Crush has some resemblance to Super Hexagon so I have high hopes for this one too

Haha, that statement attracted me, too. What does that say about us?!

I spent quite a bit of time on Slydris, and it's an excellent puzzler. Radiangames has never disappointed, and all of their games deserve an instant purchase. I do wish this was more than 69p, though I understand why it's at that price point.

That means I have enough credit in my iTunes for one more 69p game tonight, need to do some research on what else is coming.
