Description

*Countdown was previously known under the title "DownToZero"

Now updated with 3 graphical skins to choose from!

Countdown has been featured by IGN as one of "8 Great Unsung iPhone Games"! Thank you IGN!!! Here's what they have to say:

"our puzzler of choice is the simple yet superbly implemented Countdown... It's unbelievably tense and hugely compulsive - with the game's 1-minute Time Attack mode being an absolute gem. Throw in responsive touch-screen controls, 3-minute Time Attack and Endless Modes, a Global online leader board and [...] we can't recommend it highly enough."

Countdown is a fast action puzzle game.

[3] Drag your finger to connect blocks that

subtract down to zero.

[2] Connected blocks will disappear after

2 seconds.

[1] Connect more blocks before they disappear

to create chains!

[0] Good luck!

"I love the retro graphics, the sounds are great, and the game play really is fantastic. It's one of those games you can just pick up and play to kill time whenever, and the re-playability is great."

"This is a casual puzzle with a really well balanced production."

"I keep returning to this game over alot of the other stuff I've bought recently. It's fantastic and I'm going to recommend it to whoever I can"

"Really like this puzzler and it will stay on my iDevice for some time. Highly recommended."

"Countdown combines elements of Drop7, Numba and Big Top 10, but what it adds is a bucketload of timing, strategy, pacing, and competition... I recommend it not only to fans of the aforementioned titles, but to anyone that likes puzzle games that challenge your mind and your dexterity."

4/5 stars

Fun math based game.

:
I like the multiple Skins that are now usable, I am normally a fan of retro but for some reason I did not like the original style, the modern style I like. Containing online leaderboards, three skins, and 4 game modes this game has a good bit of variety and challenge to offer. The Scoring system gives bonuses for using longer chains which is a great factor in balancing the game out. Over all worth it for a math game lover or possibly even for someone just looking for a fun pick up and play game.

5/5 stars

The original was better

:
The new update ruined the game for me. The old graphics were much more unique, and so was the name. The gameplay is still fun, but really ugly. Please put an option to change the game back to the way it was.

Edit- it's great to see the retro style to be back. The new modern style looks good, too. Thanks for the update.
