    Both versions - updated on Android Market last night to 2.2, fixed a bug that caused the music to play over the lock screen. We're working on a fullscreen version as well (no more letterbox) Would appreciate if any of you who are using the ad-supported version (but not ever seeing ads) could...

    Post My game '180' action-puzzler, Today's Featured Android App on Amazon!

    I'll let you know! Our app has been available on Android for a couple of months now. The free version has got shy of 20k downloads, and the paid has got about 100. You do the math (altogether, the money has been fairly negligible). As a tiny developer with next-to-zero visibility, it is in my...

    Post My game '180' action-puzzler, Today's Featured Android App on Amazon!

    Hey, thanks! Yeah, I knew we needed to try a different approach to monetize (not only on Android, but for mobile in general). Still working out the kinks, but people generally seem pretty receptive to this idea - and if they are happy, and I am happy, then that's not a bad thing right...

    We released an update late yesterday which will run a lot smoother on older handsets which might have been hitting a performance wall with the previous version. If you have a higher-end phone and it is still autodetecting a lower setting, you can try manually forcing to a higher resolution by...

    Our game has a unique new monetization method - buy "Ultra" version for $1.99 and all features are unlocked from the start. Or play the ad-supported free version, as cumulative gameplay time passes you will unlock all features and at the 10-hour mark all ads will disappear forever - both...
