I really want to see a game play video for this; I'm not clear at all on the game mechanics. Sounds like an interesting concept, but what is it that you actually do ? I'd also have to say that unless there is multiplayer with this, I would feel the game had missed the mark.

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

There's a lite version to try. It's pretty simple gameplay, you slide your finger to aim your weapon and move your shield. There are various power ups and spells. The lite version is very short but gives some idea of gameplay. The game is simple but kind of fun. I would hope it gets a little more complex and difficult as you progress.

I'm not really sure about this game. I downloaded the lite version to check it out. I wasn't impressed. Basically, there are two jousting knights on the screen. You control the knight on the left. There are two virtual controls that you use to control the height of your shield and your jousting spear. The goal is to use your shield to block the opponents spear while using your own spear to inflict the most damage. The game is split up into rounds. You keep jousting until you or your opponent are defeated. You earn stars and money based on how well you perform. You use the money to buy upgrades. After playing through the first 5 levels, I didn't really feel like playing anymore. There didn't appear to be different game types. I didn't see any multiplayer options. The controls were all touch based, not tilt. It just wasn't compelling enough to make me want to keep playing. I'd suggest checking out the free version before buying.

That is too easy.
