"Challenging fast paced gameplay" is no joke - it's tough. Items and enemies appear so fast you're always on your toes.

As opposed to Mega Jump and Doodle Jump where you die if you miss your platform, instead you're trying to survive as long as possible from the "wall of doom" in this case a machine with a murderous claw. Onscreen enemies don't kill you as much as they slow you down, too much and the claw machine will catch up to you and attempt to kill you my homing onto your position and striking. Ingame visuals are much sharper than the menus, which are inexplicable non-retina ready.

Decent casual game that other posters will like, but not my cup of tea. Doodle Jump already has me covered.
