hmm, the first six levels are free. Then it asks you to buy the full version for $0.99. And you get 72 levels or something. The thing is, is that the AppStore description page doesn't have a Top In-App Purchase thing or anything. So, no one knows if there are any.

Great demo levels. But the advertising is so false. 72 levels for $.99 was a great purchase in my eyes.

Wow, strange way of marketing this one. First six levels were decent, but then it launches into this seemingly endless video previewing other levels with no way to skip it. I actually killed it before it ever got to asking for the in-app purchase.

And here's a 16 MB app that bloats into over 44 even after restart. Still may keep this in mind down the road. Too many other good releases recently.

From the 6 level 6 second demo I played the ball rolling physics are FANTASTIC, the best I've ever experienced with these type of games. The slingshot mechanic is so smooth and precise, I wish House of Mice had this mechanic, and this well polished.

Unfortunately it got buried under a slew of games yesterday, zero marketing and the aggressive IAP isn't helping matters, but I dare say this has potential to be among the best release this week. Ingame purchase is 99 cents for the full game.

This game got slammed even harder than Roboto for the IAP confusion. And it played quite smoothly too. Shame.
