I got an early promo for this and it really is a great game. Gameplay is a simple tap mechanism and really interprets well to a touch based device.
In the game you are given the chore of rescuing stray astronauts, you do this by tapping the guys, causing your robot CLAWD to extend his grappling hook. There is also a lot of space debris you can destroy or deflect with your claw. Some objects (aliens) have shields and some debris require a power up to smash, which leads up to the crystal gathering system. Crystals can be earned in game (or bought) and are used to upgrade your CLAWD. The music is campy and cute and harkens back to a Lost in Space episode. Overall the game is a lot of fun, great replayability, CLAWD's facial expressions are worth the ticket price alone, and I highly recommend this. It really feels like the developer thought this one out and put out a finished project.

From the screenshots and gameplay it kinda resembles Space Monkey. How true is that? Does it go beyond the theme?

Enh, there might be some similarities but I think this one will be even simpler to control as there is no lining up of limbs. Simply tap on an object and the claw will whip out to any direction (I assume only one claw at a time) to contextually grab or, if a bad item, deflect it away.

Hey Russian, I really like your game and hope it does well for you.

I'd love to see some additional power-ups added. How about MULTI-CLAW? You temporarily gain the ability to shoot out multiple claws.

How about a power up that let's you drag your claw around the screen and 'fling' it around, really playing with the physics? Or an item that you smash that shoots a cluster or homing missiles out and destroys stuff onscreen?

Cool game. A bit heavy on IAP but nothing that playing a ton of games can't unlock.
