Game Impressions

Surprised there's so little interest in this. I've been playing it the most out of all the Thursday releases.

The key thing here, is that unlike other similar games on the app store there is no consumable IAPs but just a single 99c purchase to unlock the full game and remove ads. Even what you get for free is pretty generous.

The physics are good, the gameplay is fun and there's a good amount of variety. Production values are right up there, as you'd expect from Namco. No reason for anyone to not at least check this out.

Agreed. I have been playing this a lot and was very pleased the the full cost was just .99.

I've been loving this too. I've already had enough play time to make my 69p (to remove ad's) purchase worth it.

This is a terrific casual game ! The graphics are first-rate, and the game is perfect for a wide range of ages. The young ones (4 & 6) love it, and I'm 52 and played it for a half-hour this afternoon.

It's absolutely worth the dollar to get this game fully unlocked ! Go for it, you will not regret it.

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...
IAPs = I Ain't Purchasing, son !

Hmm..might have to look at this one. Used to like the ol' Skeeball app. But there's been so many good casual games that that one got pushed off.
