...just released. Marble roller with *real* physics based on ideas from MonkeyBall / Marble Blast. Everything is custom: 3D engine, textures, and music.

Isn't this a re-release? I know ive got a game that looks EXACTLY like this... Even the menu is the same...

Yup, use to have this. It was removed from the store, and re-released as a free/full for IAP game...

here's the original pulled game - http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=105311


developer said he was going to fix the controls in an update, but that update never came... did the same thing Hothead did with Kickin Momma (minus the price fluctuations... not really fair to compare PXL to Hothead, but it's the first instance that comes to mind)...

Actually, the features you originally requested were added: calibration and sensitivity. I also added game center and a point system. The game was not getting the exposure it needed and I felt it would also be better to rerelease as free with IAP so people could at least try out the game before buying. I truly think this is fair and have received many positive comments. It is essentially not possible to convert a paid game to IAP without disabling functionality for existing customers and I chose not to go that route.

I actually ended up buying the game before you got back to me with a code, and ended up giving the code to a friend, something that happens pretty often actually. I dis write a review, but after talking about it with another reviewer for the site, decided not to post my 2 stars out of 10 review up on the site because we've had some strong backlash from developers when rating that low. We decided to wait and re-review after you updated the game with the options you said you were going to add, which never happened. So yes, you did take my money, and removed the game, re-releasing it as a free+IAP title. Other members deserve to know what kind of decisions you've made concerning your games.

Would you like me to share my new review with everyone who visits The App Shack? Because I would love to.

Where is Orbis Extreme?
I've made a 5 star review for this game.

This is the same game with iAP
