    Yeah. I know this comparison will come up and actually it makes me flattered. Thank you. I wanted to do a tribute to Geometry Dash (which is one of the big ones) and took the idea from the cubies and the portals which I think are really awesome. Then I mixed it with the gameplay of Block Shock (and its Buildbox clone Creep Shock) and added new obstacles to it. That's pretty much how the game came to its early stages, at least mechanic wise. Can't believe that this was over a year ago. :D Also, cool that you loved it nonetheless.

    The music is made by E8, a DJ from Germany. I'll let him know that you liked it. I contacted him through one of those music platforms. Don't remember which one though.

    Saying I suck at the game is the neat way of saying you don't like it. lol :p No worries though. All good. :D I think it's one of those games when you don't understand the logic behind, you immediately will put it down. But you don't want to know how much I tweaked the physics to make it feel right. And still, I have seen several players who just can't get used to the rhythm and gameplay. You are probably one of them. haha. I had a version without tutorial at the beginning and the rate was probably at 50/50. With the tutorial I could make it so that the player enters the mood of the game and the effect was reduced a lot. But I know, it's still happening. I just hope the editor from Apple wasn't one of them. lol

    Haha, thanks Phill. That's exactly what I thought. Still can't figure out how others do new games so fast and so often.

    Got some promo codes left:

    Oh Man @Christoph Congratz Bro.! Really Amazing and Polished Game. I wish you the best of luck and trust me this game will catch people mind. Just wait for it. ;)

    I wonder how much time did you put into this game. You did hard work and I am sure it will pay off.

    Thanks mate. From the first idea to the release it was almost one and a half years. lol. But keep in mind that this is my first game ever. I didn't know anything about game development before and it was a huge learning experience. From designing every aspect of the game to get used to Buildbox and to study everything else related to the industry. In this game there is pretty much all I learned until now. And I know this is just the beginning.

    Funfact: I wanted this game to finish with the Buildbox trial last year. I prepped all the graphics, studied every tutorial I could find on the Internet, read the manual twice and read all the posts in the forum (I actually still do). Then I registered for the trial. After 4 weeks I realized that I'm just too slow. Then David came out with Color Switch making it in one week and I was like: :eek: I guess I'm not the average developer. lol. But in general I'm always a little slow with whatever I do... :D

    Thanks Simon. This means a lot coming from you.

    Haha. Yeah. The UFO parts are crazy difficult. At least the ones in the more advanced levels.

    If you like the game and have some time, please leave a review. (The ones who downloaded the game with a promo code can't though)
