Went to the dev site. Since they are making available templates for Gamesalad, this game was probably made with this engine, too. Waiting for impressions from those TOFTT

Tilt only controls that aren't very accurate, star keeps moving left or right after I've leaned iPad to move the other way, but, it doesn't cause too many deaths as the game is very forgiving and doesn't provide much of a challenge, the difficulty doesn't increase as you get higher so it kind of gets boring pretty quickly. Star jumps quite high but platforms are placed close together which is kind of weird as there's no chance of him landing on some of them.

There are powr ups etc that can be used to help you which are purchased with coins collected, of which there are plenty in my opinion, however I don't think they are needed as it's easy enough as it is, there's also some costumes which all seem to be unlocked at the start and don't cost any coins, I like that they don't cost anything but maybe if they were earned it would give something to work towards.

I think this game would be more suited to kids, it'd probably provide a decent challenge for them, I hadone play through and ended up at the top of the leader boards, I only died because I got bored and killed myself. Something needs to be done about the difficulty and maybe a touch control option and this would be a lot better, the potential is there.


Edited to add, I just noticed on the appinfo that costumes should cost coins but none were deducted from me and I was able to select them all for free.
