Good work, Rhys! I would love to see some more maps though (especially in the mobile version) :)

I can't find a way to export an ipa. Xcode just stops what it's doing when I try to validate it, it flashes "generating code signed ipa" and then it disappears and nothing else happens. I sent the game into StencylBuilder but it never came back.

If we're online at the same time, I have a test I'd to perform. Basically, temporarily set your e-mail to  mine and see if I get the e-mail. If I do, then I think that this is an e-mail side issue.

Why are the screen shots rotated the wrong way? Or is that intentional?

They're rotated so you can turn around your device and see the landscape view. The app store only accepts portrait screenshots I think.

You can put them in landscape.

Even if they only accepted portrait, a lot of apps use the space creatively do portray what they want.

We'll cover this in the marketing guide, but best practice is to use the screenshots to sell the product. I personally don't read past line 1 of an app description, if that. I go straight to the screenshots and read the captions within the screenshots.

Apps without captions in their screenshots or with screenshots that look too similar won't convert as well.

Good example of screenshots

Indeed, I did something similar with my first game. This is also an example of screenshots in landscape format.

Congrats, Rhys! I'm playing it right now on an iPod Touch 3rd. gen.
Works like a charm but it's actually more difficult on a mobile device (at least for me).

Love the music :)) Great game!

It's a little tricky at first, but then you realize that you don't really need super precise movements to beat the levels. If this were something like Binding Force or Mibibli's Quest where precision is really required, then I'd probably balk.

The screenshots are updated. Can't upload a bugfix because stop sounds is broken and the performance issues are still present.
