Ballon Headed Boy ($3.99)

Hey Guys,
Anyone tried this one yet http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=308645202&mt=8, looks like a Kirby style game. It says it has 20 levels though, I'm not sure if they take time to complete, that would help me decide if its worth a purchase, also anyone have a video of how the controls work.

Saw this on the Sniper, more interesting though is "Glyder"

It's from Glu who of course released Build a Lot! Must purchase. This should have it's own thread! Where is LordCrom? Thought he would have posted this.
Good preview from IGN where the reviewer said it reminded them of Pilotwings from SNES. That alone makes me want it.

If I don't snag this for a review, I'm buying it after seeing what you think first Rich and then I hope someone makes a video of it.

Just found out that this is from Gimme5Games maybe that means will be seeing Blocks With Letters On and More Blocks With Letters On soon.

I won't spend $4 on it but man it made me laugh. A balloon for a head is a funny concept.

I also like the silly sound effect.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

Looks pretty cool, especially with the cartoony graphics. 20 levels seems like a lot too. I might have to get this one this weekend.

Overly pumped more with saccharine than air if you ask me. The mechanics are well done.

I just downloaded the lite version, and I think that it's a good concept for a game, just a bit too simple for me. I haven't died once, and I've collected everything on my first run through. Maybe I'm just too good.
