I completed it with a time of 58:46, and I am sure there are many others with a quicker time than that. I completed it, in real time, after a few days of playing. It's addictiveness was it's downfall in the end. I completed far too quickly than I'd have liked, and I long for more levels. However, I appreciate that it is free, and there is only so much you should expect for gratis.
I hope the developer will work hard on adding more levels to Trace 2 so it will take longer to complete. Let's face it, 100 levels sounds a lot. But when some of them literally take a few seconds to finish, it's no wonder it doesn't take that long to get through them.

I completed it in around 70min on version 1 (no eraser). I believe it could be much better if I'm using physical buttons as the virtual d-pad is so frustrating to use. I ever spent 10 minutes just to passa1 level while my drawing was already correct.

Is there any replayability once we beat all levels? I love this game, so I'm just curious if there's anyway I could still replay it.

I guess you could start over, maybe delete it and reinstall so you can completely retry and improve your time. But there's no option like in Touch Physics where you can change the gravity.

Interesting Idea. I'm always looking for ideas to improve Trace!

I played through Trace again a few days ago and got my time to around 17 mins.

Cool! This would mean that, depending on the setting, jumps would be higher or lower (and maybe farther? Or less far, or would this make several levels impossible?), and you could replay the game with different settings.

Also, maybe you could create an icy environment so that when you jump or walk, the little guy will slide a bit further after you let go of the control? This would make for more precise controlling.

(I reinstalled Trace last night after finishing it a while ago, it's better to keep a game like this on the device. )
