No Words.

This game is easily one of my favourites out of any game I have played on the app store, hands down. From the moment I first wiped out, I knew I would eventually unlock every particle. And that I did, up to the Anti Boson X. It had me coming back time and time again, every time I was bored or otherwise, slowly making progress toward that last particle. And oh, how it was satisfying to finally get it, For the love of all that exists, pick this up.

Needs iCloud Save!

Great game, so much fun and extremely challenging. Just needs cloud save so our progress isn't for nothing. If there are no more levels to be added in the future then an update to save our progress in the cloud is the least to add. That would be really helpful and make this perfect. Thanks!

Amazing! One request.

I absolutely love this game and have beaten all 18. If you developers could add more levels (even if they are paid) I would be so happy. Thanks for a great game!
