Unify is a puzzle game in the style of Tetris but with a twist. Instead of blocks falling vertically from the top of the screen, blocks fall horizontally from both sides of the screen. Yes, in Unify players must juggle two different sets of falling blocks at the same time. Your goal is to survive as long as you can, getting combos and increasing your highscore.
You control the block placement by swiping on screen with your thumbs to move the pieces and tap either side of the screen to rotate that piece. Game blocks will disappear once there are four or more squares together. The controls work but seem to be a little too sensitive, causing you to rotate when you are trying to move and vice versa.
The visuals are simple and the quick colour changes are a nice change that helps to keep gameplay fresh. The sound is quick and bouncy, but players are free to use their iPod during gameplay instead. The game features a few different two modes; Normal and Endless. The game also features the option to submit highscores to leaderboards and track your friend’s scores via OpenFeint.
Unify is an original and inventive game that will appeal to fans of Tetris. The gameplay is good, and can get very hectic at times juggling two different block stacks at once. But the control sensitivity issues really do let the game down, maybe not at first, but once the difficulty and speed increases. However, the game is still a lot of stacking fun and worth a look at if you’re a Tetris fan.

" Unify from Developer Zach Gage takes an old idea, turns it on its side, (literally!) and creates a premium gaming experience on the iPhone all its own... Unify is excellent in motion, and should not be missed."
-The Current Gamer
"A smart twist on the typical colour-matching puzzler, Unify is the kind of title that takes a couple short minutes to learn, but a lifetime to put down"
"I never thought this would happen, but I play this more than lumines despite being a lumines addict"
"Tetris, smetris! Unify is one of the rare games to give the classic puzzler a run for it’s money."

"Those looking for a different kind of iPhone puzzler, should definitely give Unify a try"
"A brilliantly simple puzzle game that's a truly unique experience…try to survive all 40 levels of intense brain integration. You won't believe how captivating this simple concept turns out to be!"
"Tetris is a game that has stood the test of time. Many games have tried to mimc the same concept but only few have ever found success because, as they say, nothing is better than the original. However, Unify is here to defy that logic."
"A beautiful multi-touch block dropping game"
"...inspired by Tetris, Zach is bringing a new, clever and absolutely wonderful revamped version of the good old classic. ... The more you play the more the game becomes almost natural and intuitive play of shapes, pattern and colours."
"This easily one of those puzzlers that shouldn’t be overlooked. Albie Meter: 4.5 Stars"
"a borderline art piece"
"one of the most fantastic iPhone games i've played so far"

Unify is the first truly multi-touch block dropping game.
Instead of a single piece falling from the top of the screen to the bottom, two pieces move in from the sides towards the middle, simultaneously.
The goal of the game is to make combinations of 4 or more of the same color, so that they disappear.
Once blocks disappear, all the blocks on top of them move in towards the center, giving you the opportunity for combos.

- Autosave (if you pause and then chose quit, it won't save, but if you hit the home button to quit it does. I will make this clearer in updates)
