Default Gopher Launch by Outsmart (Universal)

Stumbled upon this and guess it got lost in the shuffle with this week's releases. Anyway, it's a pretty darn fun and challenging, timed maze-like game with sling shot mechanics.

Another great freemium release this week (IAP only for disabling ads from what I've seen). Well worth checking out IMO:

Default Gopher Launch

Thanks awp! Just released this game a few days ago. We're just getting into mobile games and this is our first effort in that space. I have to say, it was a blast making it! Hope you guys enjoy..

Any feedback you might have would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum! Gotta say this is a really fantastic first release on the iOS/Android. Impressive graphics, fun and quite challenging gameplay (damn it can be tricky to get all five orbs within some of those time allotments).

It can be a little frustrating at times trying to do the slingshot thing under pressure and maybe occasionally hard to get the mechanism to work as quickly as you need it to.

But overall, the game is a blast and looking forward to any updates and/or future games from you.

Just hope this gets some more notice from the TA community here as well!

Thanks for your kind words awp.

I fully agree about the frustration factor - that was one of the primary concerns we had about the game going into release. The other thing we wondered about was if the zoom level was going to be a problem for people on smaller form-factor phones - the whole 3d planet thing makes it tricky to get the planet in frame and still see your character in any detail.

Anyways, really appreciate you taking the time to post this up.

Cheers!
