Looks like it might be fun, and the controls intrigue me. I'll be looking out for anyone's reports on how it plays.

Long gone are the days of TOFTT. Come on guys...someone step up.

inb4whydontyou?

Well, because I'm not very keen on games with a slingshot mechanic these days. Still interested though.

EDIT: Added a gameplay video to the OP. Hmmm...not bad. *scratches beard*

Default Actually i like it pretty much...but

Omg ! What a play through...

Just wanted to give some feedback before i saw this video for
the first time. Some useful tips there are, to play it way different
then i did/found out so far. But since there is just a supershort
tutorial, it's up to you to find out what's possible with these pretty
nice and easy working slingshots.
The player in the vid knows exactly where is who or what. I'm miles
away of his accuracy. (currently about level 3-3 but i didn't see
that level he played).

I really have to play more, after i watched the vid another few times,
before i can say more about exact this/my issue with the accuracy.

Just about ten achivments (don't care anyways), no flip-screen !!
and a few other little things that sums it up to...I can't recommend it
from the heart, but still...i do like this unique little character !

Played a few games with this new won technic from the video,
and i get more and more comfortable and precise, indeed !

Despite the lots of flaws (as Rōnin has the same) i say now:
Recommended ! (if a buck doesnt hurt you buy it now)

If the Devs come on board - for the "time junkies" a must
to have a leaderboard, otherwise i don't see to much of a
replay value here. Good luck.

This isn't half bad. Needs auto rotate and doesn't download on iPad1 but is a nice little platformer with unconventional controls. Not perfect but surprisingly good.

Howdy Qwertz, thank you for giving our game a chance!

Definitely there is some ramp-up to mastering the controls. That's one thing I'd like to tutorialize better in-game in the future, and spend some more time working out a few kinks in the levels that make certain jumps awkward.

The level played in that video is #17, in the 4th world of the game.

I didn't think the ability to rotate was such a biggie! We'll definitely add that to our improvements list for future updates.

Thanks again for giving Rubber Bandito a shot!

Slamraman, thanks for playing!!!

There are a few older devices that are 'on the fence' in terms of performance and stability. Hopefully we will be able to add support for the A4 devices with only 256mb in the near future (it was being worked on but didn't make launch).

Thank you for the endorsement!

Leaderboard for speed runs? That is definitely is doable, thanks for the input!

If you want to vent any frustrations with the game, I'm happy to hear them!
