K, if you want to stick with the Poopla concept but clean it up a bit then he can be Goopla.  But Ooopla is sort of a twist on "oops" cause thats what he causes, that could work.  Joopla sounds a bit antisemitic.  Loopla sounds like a British bathroom.  Or you could just go with the one that flows best with Hoopla.  Again Goopla could work for me but you have to live with the character so pick one that rolls off the tip of your tongue.

"Ooopla" would also be my favorite.

Depending a bit on how the mechanics are actually implemented, what you described above for these two characters could give the game an interesting spin. The design is simple, but clear. But… "Poopla"? That sounds a bit like, well, poop.

Yes Jugger, i am getting that quite a lot....thinking of other names :)

Question about leaderboards….any suggestions is welcome

We have implemented leaderboards in H but it requires the player to get out of the game and then log into their leaderboard accounts. This would take him away from the game, which is not the ideal scenario. So the question: Is there any way around this? How do you guy implement leaderboard in your games? Is there any third party service that you can recommend? Any kind of suggestion or recommendation is welcome. Thanks :)

Unless you want to release the game on other platforms like Android, too, and have cross-platform leaderboards, I'd say that Apple's GameCenter is the obvious choice.

Yes, we are planning to use Gamecenter but the same issue is being encountered on it & we are unable to find a way to allow the player to log in the Gamecenter account from inside the game without exiting.

Even so, that normally should happen only once, if at all. If the player has logged in with another game previously, that log-in should persist.

The Powers to be....

There would have a number of powers that the player can use to make his life easier. These powers can be earned from inside the game and can change the complexion of the game in a single turn. Getting them would not only depend on the skill of the player but also on the stroke of luck. I am giving below a brief description of these powers along with their icons. Please let us know you’re your views. Any & all kind of comments are welcome

Bonanza: Allows the player to earn double the score for a limited period of time.

Antigravity: Freezes the game for a single turn. Your best ally while staring at death.

Reshuffle: Reshuffle the cards dealt by fate to you. Changes the set of choices presented to the player.

Masterstroke: Befitting the name, play the master stroke to clear out huge number of shapes in a single move.
