one dollar a year

Time for an update on my latest mobile game 'Sweet Drmzzz' that was released last week. First of all thanks to everyone who already got the app and for supporting bontegames! So who has already completed the game? Exciting news: yesterday the game was reviewed on major mobile games site PocketGamer and it received their Silver Award! You can read that review here.
Now this is the one time in a year that I ask money for a game, to support my future free browser games, and to support the bontegames site. So for only one dollar you can get this 'elegant, charming and challenging masterclass in simple and intuitive game design' (those are the words from PocketGamer, not mine ;) ) and support bontegames in the meantime!
Here is where you can get the game for Android, for Apple iPhone/iPad or for Amazon Kindle.
One more thing, if you have already got the game, can you please take a minute to leave a rating/comment in the app store, it really helps the discoverability of the game, thanks so much!
Now, time to start thinking about and working on that next free game, my yearly Christmas game... Cheers!

a new bontegame: sweet drmzzz

Launch day is here! Today I'm proud to present my new mobile game: Sweet Drmzzz. You can get the app now for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch here in the Apple app store or for your Android phone or tablet here in the Google Play store. You can watch the trailer here.
What once started as a small Nitrome jam game has now grown into a full-blown mobile game with lots of levels. When sleep sets in, the mini version of you gets in the alarm clock, is launched into space and sets off for many levels of spacy point and click, puzzle and arcade action. Solve logic puzzles in space involving coloured space worms popping out of planets, collect stars in snake-style arcade levels where the logic and difficulty changes as you make it through more levels and draw to direct space dust as it trickles out of your alarm clock because the space worms need it!



I have worked very hard on this one, so please give it some love by playing and rating and commenting in the app store. Thanks and enjoy the game!
