Unique gaming experience: the first ever Game that is controlled by blowing at the screen!

The poor snowflake is trapped inside a lodge. Your task is to guide it safely back out again. Blow at the screen to move the snowflake away from obstacles and to steer it into the right airstreams that will take it forward. Don’t blow to hard when candles are around because when they are off it’s going to be very dark.
It doesn’t snow where I live but hey now I can have snow anytime I want! Snowflakes from Peerium Inc allows you to enjoy watching snow fall on your iPhone until you are awash in joy. Tap once to create a snowflake, drag to create a stream of them then tilt to change the point of gravity as they fall…and that’s it. Much like Zen Garden, this app does exactly what’s advertised and nothing more. A little more effort could make this fun, for example allowing some snowflakes to stay on the screen and let a shake function like a snow globe. How about a mode where snow just continually falls to some relaxing music that we could zone out to? Heck I might just hang mine from the Christmas tree if it did that; be quite a conversation piece that’s for sure. What about a hi-res window frame with random snowfall so I can hang my iPhone on the wall and try to convince my kid that it’s a real window and it’s actually snowing outside? As with Zen Garden
This app is a great way to use the unique features of the iPhone. The game play is fun at first but the fun is short lived. It is still worth the .99 price. The only problem I have with the game is the my phone shut off during the game if I don't keep touching the screen. Most apps turn off this power saving feature.
