4/5 - iFanzineiFanzine.com

Matching colors, toppling block towers, a drive for instant solutions -- it's like experiencing a first grader's night terror.

4/4 Must Have! - Nadia OxfordSlideToPlay.com

Push Panic is a perfect companion for those who want to blast away a few spare minutes or those who want to push the boundaries of their high-score skills; a great addition to anyone's collection.

5/5 Great! - Andrew NesvadbaAppspy.com

Outstanding, Must Own! - Kyle Mackinnonssh-mon.com

Straightforward colour-matching mechanics, challenging modes, and excellent replay value make Push Panic highly recommended!

8/10 Silver Award! - Tracy EricksonPocketgamer.co.uk

I’m just going to play this for five more minutes then go to bed…oh, is it really 3am already? So sets the scene for Push Panic – a title that thoroughly deserves great fortune and success.

4/5 ADDICTIVE - Jennifer Allen148Apps.com

Push Panic is a puzzler so epically addictive it should come with a health warning attached. The adrenalized block busting action of Classic Mode is well worth the price-tag alone, but Barry Kostjens also throw in a number of bonus modes and a hefty dose of Game Center fun for good measure. An absolute must have for puzzle fans!

Short Overview of Push Panic

Tap the blocks as quickly as you can and remove them before they fill the screen! Link as many same colored blocks together as possible to score more points with massive combos. Random power-up blocks include chain-links that combine multiple color strings, point multipliers, time freezes, bombs, and a raise-the-bar blocks that give players more wiggle room.

Four exciting, fast-paced gameplay modes alter objectives and keep players in a frantically fun tizzy. Push Panic also uses a live ranking system which allows players to see how they stack up against the competition in real time.

How Push Panic Came To Be

After my release of iGangster, I learned more about coding and decided to develop a small test game to polish my skills. While I was coding this test game I thought of some mechanics that could be fun to play. I coded until I got a basic game which I then showed to my wife and friends. Most of the reactions were very positive and I decided to put some more work into it. The process went on for some weeks and I realized that I could make a great game out of this concept. That is how Push Panic was born.

I have been working on Push Panic since January 2010, first alpha testers where added in March 2010 and beta testers joined in April 2010. Ricardo also joined the project in April 2010. We have both learned a lot from this project, and it was huge fun developing it! We hope you guys like Push Panic as much as we do :)

About Barry Kostjens and Ricardo de Zoete

Barry Kostjens is an independent developer for iOS apps from the Netherlands. Prior to developing Push Panic, Barry developed iGangster, his first game for the iPhone platform, which was also featured by Apple. The success of iGangster seeded Barry’s dedication to learning more about Objective-C and coding, paving the way for the birth of Push Panic. In desperate need of a sophisticated graphics designer for Push Panic, Barry began searching on iPhone forums, where he found Ricardo de Zoete, who had the skills and knowledge in GFX to render the stunning graphics of Push Panic. Though the duo never met in person, they have joined together in a dynamic team to develop quality apps that paves the way for further creative innovations.
