UPDATE: Unfortunately due to other commitments I have been unable to update Orbsorb for iOS9, I will try and get an update out as soon as I can.
Check out my new game Cubeode! Its FREE!
Orbsorb is an original central defence arcade game about focus, control and high scores.
Defend your Orbsorber from incoming, different coloured ORBs. Gain points for defence and even more points for letting the same coloured ORBs pass by your shield. Try to keep control and focus as ORB numbers increase, ORBs quicken and special ORB attacks bombard your Orbsorber.
Use a classic joystick style control scheme to achieve endless high scores. As you learn to keep calm and stay focused, control and precision will be your greatest advantage.

Ratings and Reviews
Great game BUT...
I still had 2 rings...sitting at 8663 pts (that's my #4 score there on the Game Center leaderboard) and I was on a roll! In my zone when an alarm sounds and all of a sudden the game freezes and then I mysteriously have no joystick even though I never lifted my thumb from the screen. So with a blink of an eye my game was over. This has happened on multiple occasions where the game gets laggy or my joystick suddenly disappears even though I have a death grip on the screen. It's really frustrating. One thing I also notice is that in the GC Achievements there is one for triggering the alarm 5 times in one game. I sat there and counted 26 alarms in a single game and still haven't gotten that achievement. I've also noticed since the 7.1 update that when I go to capture the special bonus orbs (the little flashy ones) that more often than not it will just pass right thru my defender like it was never there. Please fix the glitches and I will be more than happy to upgrade to 5stars. Otherwise this is a really awesomely simple game
Please fix annoying glitch!!!
I have loved this game since I first got it. It's very addictive and well worth the cost. However, for the last month or more this game has been plagued with a very frustrating glitch that makes it almost unplayable - for whatever reason, as often as not it is impossible to catch the flashing bonus orbs; they just pass through the orbsorber that you control with your thumb. I can see from other reviews that I'm not the only fan of this app who has encountered this. Once this is fixed this game is easily deserving of five stars, but until then it will languish in mediocrity. Also, I've noticed other reviewers refer to "alarms" that are triggered throughout the game - I have spent a lot of time playing this game (ok, I don't have a life) and I have never triggered an alarm - is this just me or is this another glitch?
Better in Every Way
The new update is a 100% improvement. There is no lag whatsoever, and it hasn't crashed at all. Now that these issues have been fixed, I can now play it!
