SpinIn: puzzle app game

iPhone Screenshot 3
David Tzur recently contacted me about his new puzzle app game SpinIn. I actually play tested this game 4 years ago:  when I had my ipod touch device. David says that this is an improved version. I thought the old version was terrific.

The object of SpinIn is to tilt/swipe the pieces in 4 directions until the gem can find the exit. It's sometimes possible that another piece will slide out the exit first. This may be advantageous. It may also make it impossible to get your man out.

These puzzles are extremely well designed and quite challenging. Right now I've solved the first 60 levels.

Let's talk money. You can play the first 24 levels for free. After that, you must either wait a certain amount of time, or pay to get instant access.  This will happen every 12 levels. Very similar to the Candy Crush model. I am all for ios game developers asking for money! My sense is that it should be a one time shot of $1.99. Just my opinion.

Without a doubt, SpinIn is one of the best puzzle apps of 2014.

Update 7/25/2014

I have solved up to level 70. Stuck on 71.

David sent me an image of level 90, which I can't upload. It's a 4x3 grid and the minimum number of moves to solve it is 30.
