Notes: Out of all my iOS games, this one gets the most downloads.
Why, I don't know... maybe because this game was inspired by an obscure Japanese game called Yosaku (aka Kikori no Yosaku) for the Epoch CassetteVision which was a port of a rare (possibly lost) arcade game from SNK?
Anyway, I saw a number of gameplay videos on Youtube for Yosaku, and I thought it was an interesting concept for a game, so I created my own re-imagining of it that used a simple touch interface.
Later, I added a re-creation of the original CassetteVision game as an unlockable. I studied the videos repeatedly for my re-creation, and I think I copied the game very closely. (not that anyone really cares).
Kikori's a pretty simple game, but you'll probably get a few hours enjoyment out of it.

Below are some samples from this game:
