    Hi everyone,
    We released a new game on the App Store yesterday and I thought it'd be good to let everyone here know.

    It's our first game, so we're looking for some feedback if anyone has any...

    So far, our feedback has been that "Hard is really HARD!" :)

    Which is ok with us cause we wanted it to have some decent long-term playability. Our idea was that it should be easy to beat the levels, but hard to master them for gold.

    It'd be great to know if anyone actually has played it all the way through, as well as what they think.

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    About the game:
    Meet Chuck. He's on a mission to collect lost stars and he needs your help. With the swipe of your finger, you can guide Chuck, picking up stars and avoiding hazards. Handy bonus items help you on your way, but keep your eye on the clock so you don't run out of time.
    - 100 levels
    - Three difficulty levels
    - Various hazards and bonuses that make each level unique
    - Easy touch-based controls (place arrows in front of Chuck by placing your finger on the screen where you want the arrow and swipe in the direction you want it to go)

    Looks well done. I watched the video. So flicking the screen changes his direction? What are the red arrows that pop up on the ground everywhere? Is that where you swiped?

    Yep, that's where you swiped.

    The idea is that he's always moving in one direction or another and you place the red arrows in front of him to change his direction.

    You can place arrows in front of anything in the game that rolls (Chuck, stones and marbles) to change their direction.

    The green arrows you see in the video are placed in the level beforehand and can't be changed.
