Anyone who loves this game, please give us your reviews! More positive reviews means more updates.

The response to AWESOME Land has been really bizarre actually, quite mixed. The graphical style people either love or hate, though I've had some reviews referring to it as 'amateurish' and as a professional graphic designer I can't quite understand what gives people that impression, perhaps they don't feel that collage is a professional style of design.

Then the strange thing is that we get 1 star reviews for being 'too much like Mario' right next to 1 star reviews for being 'not enough like Mario', which is amusing!

I know a lot of people enjoy this game, so I've been tempted to add a rating nag system, as much as I don't care for those things. The average score is 3 and a half stars in the US but the three most recent reviews have all been negative and sales have gone down because those are the ones showing on the front page which kinda sucks!

Anyway, we've taken on board all the criticisms we've received (where they've been constructive) for AL2, which is approaching a very epic design, suffice to say we're giving good reason for the 'Awesome' in the title... We've got cyborg T-Rex's which fire laser beams...

Wow! This game reminds me of my favorite game which i used to play a lot in childhood - "Mario". Children will love playing this game.

I'm experiencing this weird slow down... Like it'll be running normal speed, but suddenly the entire game will slow down, like I'm playing in slow motion...

I'm on a 3rd gen running iOS 4.2...

Yeah 3rd gen can have that issue with our SDK, it should be fixed when we put out the update. In the mean time you can usually fix that by quitting and going to "continue".

Ok... See I do quit and continue. It works fine for a while but then slows down again :/

Should be fixed with the update I'm putting out alongside MANOS.

Who wants iCade support?
