Wauv! Graphics are amazing.
Hard to tell if the gameplay is as exiting from that vid, but it sure looks good...

So! The game opens up with you finally being a pilot. you must go through dangerous cave-like environments to rescue some miners that are injured/trapped. It works a bit like a taxi game. You get to a platform, grab the miners and the goal is to reach the platform at the end of the level.
First of all the game is really beautiful on an Ipad 2 (60fps, no slowdown with i'd say full Anti aliasing). Even if it's only 2, the backgrounds and the ship itself are made out of some really high quality textures.
The controls are quite great but at the same time they make the game challenging enough by making it hard to control in tight spaces.
The level design is good but i wonder if it's going to be varied enough to last those 24 levels without feeling boring. The game as some skins that you can unlock, it also comes with full voice acting and an original score.

Now, i'm only on the fourth level but there are some different things added to keep the game fresh like mines and gas but also vertical and horizontal levels. If you like the main idea and want a really great looking game then you'll like it, the trailer should give you a good idea of what to expect.

Is there an infinite mode where you are always delivering passengers? A.K.A how high is the replay value?

Not that i can see (Though the devs can anwser now that they're here). Maybe that's something that they can add!
Wishlist for future pdates Cinemaxgames:
-Endless mode
-Game center support! (achievements/Leaderboards)

Oh anyone knows why the appinfo is still processing?
