“[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 [Kranky Robot].”

"Refreshing! - Just like it says, not another match 3!" - Zztfox

"Nice! - Great to see this classic brought into the new era!" - Lord Gek

"A great original puzzler! - Excellent game, fun, different, challenging, and simple to understand! A new favorite - I look forward to seeing what else this developer releases. Recommended :)" - ralp99

Kerplinkus is a completely new take on the casual puzzle game. 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.

- Retro Audio: Old school music and sound effects.
- Retro Graphics: Color cycling and simple graphics to achieve that retro vibe.
- iPod Music: Play your own music in the background.
- Mute Audio: Kerplinkus(tm) respects the iPhone’s ring/silent switch.
- Volume Control: Conveniently adjust the volume from the option menu or the pause screen.
- Game Center.

An absolute First Rate Puzzler!

I absolutely love this game. The mechanics, retro graphics/music and overall presentation are perfect IMO. I think this one will be staying on my phone for quite a long time. I got the same feeling playing this for the first time as I did when I first picked-up Orbital. And I haven't deleted Orbital since it first debuted.

If you're a fan of puzzlers, retro-styled games or just a great and addictive challenge, I can't recommend this game enough!

Frustratingly fun

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.
