Kill the Messenger

Please review this free game I made, let me know what you think. I used Cocos2D and Box2d.

Kill the Messenger is a totally new concept in side scrolling shooter games! Instead of being the guy running through the world that is trying to get you, you are the world trying to get the guy! The messenger runs through your world while you shoot cannons, trigger trap doors, roll barrels, and even collapse simple structures to injure and destroy him! 24 free levels to play!

Also feel free to ask me anything.

Thanks,
Grat

It's not a bad concept for a free app. Have to say I though it looked a bit unpolished. The text based menus is a bit java looking. The general responsiveness and accuracy of the cannons could also be improved a little.

But not a bad idea and generally pretty solid.
