BLiP Bloink on!

From the article:

"Flashpoint Academy’s Chair of Game Development, Simeon Peebler, has released his first iPhone title — the puzzler BLiP Bloink ($0.99). Peebler teaches game programming and design at the Chicago-based private college, and believes that the experience of developing an iPhone title will provide valuable material for future classroom lectures.

“Students are really interested in the iPhone platform,” Peebler said in a recent press release. “As a game development educator, I believe it is important to spend some time to get one of my games out there on the iPhone. I can now leverage that experience in mentoring and inspiring my students.”

BLiP Bloink is a match-based puzzler that plays out like a mix of Tetris and Bejeweled — players must drop animals from the top of the screen and attempt to match them with creatures of the same type. The game features three difficulty modes, unlockable achievements, and a “brag” feature that allows players to update/annoy their friends with their accomplishments."
