After the slow download...

Pressing arrows to move to next level reduces score?

No way to save game, or warning that your game will be lost when you press the menu button.
Need names on menu items.
No pause...
No portrait mode? Seems cramped on the infinite mode
Need a restart level button, getting stuck a few times.

Love the concept.

Thanks for the feedback. I've got it set so you can progress without clearing the screen, but crystals left will count against you. Good approach or no?

I could maybe set the menu button as a popup pause.

I was considering flipping infinite mode to run to the side, if that would help?

Stupid bug. Thanks for the report.

First of it worked as a charm with my Samsung Galaxy S4. ;)

 

What you've got here is a game with simple mechanics, which anyone can take their hands into without having to read the tutorial.

The atmosphere is fluid and blends well with the music. It's a great concept and I like the overall look of the game! :)

 

Although, I feel there's something missing. You might have already considered this but, rewarding the player when better combos appears. (Graphically/Points)

I don't know if it's the gliding of the boxes should appear smooth or laggy? I'd recommend smooth tho, it gives out a better vibe imho. :)

 

Found a bug(?) when playing infinite mode. I can play and earn points  (I'm not 100% if you can) in the cinematic mode at the end, when random boxes appears/reappears on the grid. Is this suppose to happen? If so, you should warn players that they can still play, like a sign with "bonus round", I think it was a bit confusing, since I thought it might be like a "break"/"level up" or something.

 

Anyways, looking forward for the next version. I'll be sure to check in on that. +1 :thumbsup:

Thank you very much for the feedback. New version has been under construction and addresses some of this. I'll fix it so they can't play while it's doing "disco" for a full clear in the next release. Good thought.

 

The Infinite mode has been switched to go horizontally and offers better gameplay (addressing Roldus' note). Per his comments, I've also added a Pause, then quit menu. I'm presently doing glitch busting and making a High Score system that saves. Scoring works, but the saving has to be redesigned from scratch now or else I'd have a new release already.

 

Yes, the Infinite mode DOES look better with smooth sliding. I actually have already done that for the next release and it is better.

 

Thought about combos/bonuses. Not sure if I'll pursue it. Life stuff has just busted me in the chops and my goal at this point is to get it finished and working. Next version will hopefully be final with saving.

Hey guys - this is hopefully my final BETA release (see OP).  :)

 

High Score saving is now up and running. Other issues addressed.

 

Though I'd love to add more stuff like combos, I could fiddle forever and it's supposed to be a quick project. So, I am done with it except for bug fixing.

 

If you have a second, please try the file and let me know if it works / what device. Or if you get a bug, let me know what it is.

 

I REALLY appreciate it.

I love the way this game looks, the graphics are both simple, yet flashy!

I can't play the game, I'm locked to Windows or iOS testing, but from what I have seen in the screenies and my experience as a dev, I think this will do great on whatever app store you put it on!

 

I can guess at the base gameplay, and say that I do like this type of game. Puzzle/concentration games are a big win for me.

Again, based off screenies, the control scheme looks perfect for the game. Nice big buttons and objectives make the game easy to access for everyone!

 

I hope you don't mind my objective opinions, this looks fantastic!

I'd really like to get this wrapped, but I need to know if it works on various handhelds.

If you can or cannot run the apk, please let me know what device you're on.

Thanks
