Yes, as mentioned, they were extremely excited. I understand it, but I also think, it was wrong. But I also think, this short game already beats most of the existing platformers in terms of presentation, level design and fun.

(...I'm just trying...)

Damn, I was half expecting this to be a platformer with an oversized Mr. Bean head as the main character and that wacky smile of his. Based on the screenshots and on past Bean-watching experience, I'm not disappointed that my initial thoughts were not true! This looks amazingly awesome, but for $2.99 and only 8 levels, is it really worth it? Could I get a solid recommendation someone?

lol... your personal robot seems to be pushing the game quite a bit... and I will say that he is usually pretty accurate when it comes to games...

BUT -

I'm not fully convinced (nor will I ever be) that 8 platformer levels are worth $3...

And with this dev team being new... this their first game... I've been burned by way too many dev groups promising future updates, and never delivering... so I'm stayin away from it until they update it...

No disrespect to the developers, but I'm getting bored of hearing about new content "coming soon". I can deal with it occasionally, but it seems like every game I buy recently is only half of the deal. I wish someone would just release the whole thing at one time.

totally agree...


I'm really really REALLY sick of seeing 2, 3, even 4 more worlds "coming soon"

It's ridiculous!

Or sometimes just one... I hate it too. But that picture someone posted is AMAzing. If it would be a buck even 8 levels would do for me. But yea, hope to see an update soon.

They should have released it for $0.99 and then raise the price when the additional content is released. Not too smart, this method anyways. Regardless, it's going to take a lot of will power on my part to hold off.
