Cool, I'll be grabbing the iPad edition!

Bugger, just checked my iTunes balance and I'm literally pennies short of the 1.49 ($1.99) asking price.

Aww man.

This looks a lot like Risky Challenge aka Gussun Oyoyo.

The Hardcore Gaming 101 article is interesting, as always:

Gussun Oyoyo is another sad example of a forgotten series that never caught fire beyond the shores of Japan. [...] Thanks to the whoring of Irem, there are three (and a half) takes on the same game done by completely different people. What's more, the franchise burned itself out with nearly a half a dozen entries in just three years.

So would you recommend it Sanuku?
Is there some kind of depth/ replayabillity to the game?

I really like Segas quirky arcade games and im on the fence already.

Would also be interested in any impressions of either this or the HD version. It looks like a game that could be fun to play in the 2-player mode with a child, but would like to hear more about difficulty, and whether it stays interesting (also in single player).

I don't recall any IAP.

I was a bit frustrated with the control mechanics on the bonus levels. Every couple of levels you had to form like a tangram type of shape and the brick would never drop where I wanted it to drop. I actually lost a couple because the time ran out and it was snapping to the wrong section.

That same moving the block issue came back to haunt me as I progressed through the game too. That was the reason I ended up stopping to play it. If I lose a level I want it to be cuz I failed not the UI. So in that regard - perhaps the iPad version is better; and second, not sure I would play with a child unless they are very dextrous and nimble with moving things on the screen.

Overall though the actual levels were pretty fun - though wasn't sure why if I put a brick on top of a whole bunch of them they magically appeared at the top of it. So some crazy stuff going on there - maybe there is actually a step behind or through the block I don't see?

Add: I forgot - it also resets from the beginning when you die. I am not sure if it is endless as I never reached an end but the same levels repeat and you can then end up flying through the beginning as you have now memorized them (like an arcade game I suppose) - but if you want to keep going at the harder levels you will have to spend the time repeating those easier ones to get to them.

To me the game was a miss but for those that like an arcade challenge I can see it being quite fun, especially if they get the controls straight. Really a great game and lots of action, just I don't like that starting over and memorization bit.
