Kerplinkus is a completely new take on the casual puzzle game. Simple to learn. Difficult to master. It's like spinning plates. You must focus on ALL 8 columns or 1 will grow out-of-control. No match 3. No movement restrictions. No special-blocks. Swap ANY 2 blocks anywhere, anytime. Just focus on removing blocks, not creating them.
“[Kerplinkus] delivers a fresh take on the formula that's simple and highly challenging — in fact, it can be downright panic inspiring. It's a pretty frantic affair.” -Blake of Touch Arcade
“Kerplinkus promises retro take on match-based puzzle play... mixing the old with the new... [in] a distinctly old skool flavour.” -Keith Andrews of Pocket Gamer
“Is very, very addictive. Prying yourself away from the game proves very difficult. It has high replay potential and will offer many hours of entertainment.... This is a must-buy for casual puzzle game players.” -Linda Ta of AppSafari
“If you love playing casual puzzle games on your iPhone or iPod touch such as Bejewelled or Trism then [this] is definitely worth taking a look at.... If games like Pac Man, Space Invaders and Tetris still have a place in your heart then Kerplinkus could definitely find its way on to your homescreen.” -Phil Wheeler of AppAdvice
“This tile-matching game sets itself well apart from competing products, due to its hectic gameplay, muted art style, and classic SID-chip soundtrack.... It is actually very different from the normal mode of thinking.... A really nice effort by the crew at Binary Square.”

What's New in Version 1.1
Sorry no OpenFeint yet. Wanted to get this update out as soon as possible.
1. Brightness slide control located in the Help menu and on the Pause screen.
2. Swipe up anywhere, to raise a row of blocks. (Tapping the score bar no longer works.)
3. Separate leader boards for each difficulty level. (Version 1.0 leader board scores are now listed under easy.)
4. One name across all leader boards.
5. 7 digit scoring means higher score potential.
6. Updated instructions.
This game is hard. It's few flaws are all major unfairness in it's difficultly. If you have ever made a typo typing in portrait mode on the iPhone then you will fine this game suffers the same problem. Many times I have died in this game because I switched the block next to the one I wanted by accident. Furthermore, When a column gets high enough it becomes impossible to tell what particle is going to fall there, which is crucial to preventing death.
However it is very addicting, at least because you want to prove that you can go 4 minutes without dying.
A lot of fun
I once played this game for 30 minutes straight (it keeps track of how long you play on the level) and you are able to listen to your own music in the background, which is always a good option. Nice graphics and sound effects. Though I don't play this game all the time, when I do I spend a lot of time on it. Much better than Spinblox IMO.
Crazy, intense, fun! Can't put it down... AND it does have an EASY mode in the options menu; normal being the default mode. :)
