Seems like this could also be fun for fans of Snake. Watching the video and seeing the special leaves that allow your tail to shrink or start you over at as a short caterpillar... that's a pretty decent game mechanic. I think I'll give this a try. I've played a number of swipe and virtual d-pad controlled snake-like games... tilt, if done right, can be a great way to control something like this. It worked well in Last Fish.

If I get time to play it today I'll report back how it is.

Well I played the game a few minutes during lunch. Graphics and sounds are super colorful and fun. Tilt control unfortunately isn't as advanced as Last Fish. In Last Fish (I'm just a gamer and it's a good example) there's a nice auto feature for determining what the orientation of the system is so tilt control adapts well for sitting up, laying down... etc. This game only seems to work when held nearly flat with the screen straight up and then tilting from there. The control is tight but vertical controls like that don't work well in an office environment where there are other lights overhead. Otherwise the game is solid fun. I didn't get super far into it as I mainly wanted to just test it out and see how it goes. Overall it has potential, just needs a little fine tuning on tilt control orientation.
