7 or 11: Just submitted my next iPhone app to Apple.

I have just submitted my next iPhone game to Apple for approval… Here is the blurb:

Welcome to 7 or 11 where maths meets physics. Using an advanced 2D physics engine, 7 or 11 is a fun game with balloons, cacti and prime numbers!

The idea behind the game is simple, tap on the falling balloons to make running totals of either 7 or 11. If the total goes over 11 you go bust and the game ends! So be quick but be careful.

The game has two modes, Easy and Hard. In easy mode you have plenty of time just make sure the balloons don't fill the screen. In hard mode use the "Blow" button to make sure the balloons don't hit the cacti.

The idea of the game is to form a running total of either 7 or 11. So the trick is to not just click on any balloon, wait and see what appears and then go for some combinations to make 7 or 11.

Popular combinations include:

  •    6 + 1 = 7
  •    5 + 6 = 11
  •    5 + 2 = 7
  •    9 + 2 = 11
  •    8 + 3 = 11
  •    3 + 4 = 7
  •    and so on…

Don't forget longer combinations like 2 + 3 + 6 for 11 or even 2 + 3 + 3 + 2 + 1 giving 11!

This level is a bit more frantic as well as trying to make 7 or 11 from the falling balloons, you also need to keep the balloons from touching the cacti. When you see a balloon getting near a cactus, hit the "Blow" button and a puff of wind will blow them up into the air again!
