Thanks, any chance you can buff up the blast radius on the satellite,bomb & watermine balls? I think it's to small or maybe I've havn't had that much success with them yet.also having a little trouble steering the satellite ball any tips?

Honestly, I wasn't expecting much. The game is beautiful though, but a bit rough around the edges. The style alone got me to buy the ad removal IAP, however after I bought it I got an error message saying it failed, yet the ads were gone, so... I'm not sure about that. I look forward to playing it more, and seeing what comes in future updates.
