Description

Kerplinkus is a completely new take on the casual puzzle game. Simple to learn. Difficult to master. It's like spinning plates. You must focus on ALL 8 columns or 1 will grow out-of-control. No match 3. No movement restrictions. No special-blocks. Swap ANY 2 blocks anywhere, anytime. Just focus on removing blocks, not creating them.

Reviews:
“[Kerplinkus] delivers a fresh take on the formula that's simple and highly challenging — in fact, it can be downright panic inspiring. It's a pretty frantic affair.” -Blake of Touch Arcade

“Kerplinkus promises retro take on match-based puzzle play... mixing the old with the new... [in] a distinctly old skool flavour.” -Keith Andrews of Pocket Gamer

“Is very, very addictive. Prying yourself away from the game proves very difficult. It has high replay potential and will offer many hours of entertainment.... This is a must-buy for casual puzzle game players.” -Linda Ta of AppSafari

“If you love playing casual puzzle games on your iPhone or iPod touch such as Bejewelled or Trism then [this] is definitely worth taking a look at.... If games like Pac Man, Space Invaders and Tetris still have a place in your heart then Kerplinkus could definitely find its way on to your homescreen.” -Phil Wheeler of AppAdvice

“This tile-matching game sets itself well apart from competing products, due to its hectic gameplay, muted art style, and classic SID-chip soundtrack.... It is actually very different from the normal mode of thinking.... A really nice effort by the crew at Binary Square.”
-AppGamers.com

Features:
-- Online Leader Board: Sync your best scores online and view the worlds’ top 100.

-- Auto Save: During the game, if you exit for any reason, e.g. phone call, text message, the game will pause and auto save.

-- Retro Audio: Old school music and sound effects created with the SID chip from the Commodore 64.

-- Retro Graphics: Color cycling and simple graphics to achieve that retro vibe.

-- iPod Music: Play your own music in the background.

-- Mute Audio: Kerplinkus(tm) respects the iPhone’s ring/silent switch.

-- Volume Control: Conveniently adjust the volume from the option menu or the pause screen.

-- Links: Send an email or visit www.binarysquare.com from the about screen.

I hope you like it. Have fun and good luck!
