got a pre-release copy of this... and...

after you get use to the controls, it's not too bad. It really seems like (so far) all I'm doing is smashing a certain amount of buildings looking for pieces of hearts to clear the level. The tilt controls are WAY weird (needing to flip your device to turn around, and tilt to uncomfortable positions to turn), but the touch controls aren't too bad, though they do take some getting use to. Maybe I"m just not comfortable with the whole 3D destruction game idea yet...

For a buck, it's hard to say stay away, because I find it hard that you won't get your dollars worth of entertainment out of it... the upgrades are interesting, and it is always going to be nice being able to blow up a bus, or destroy a cop car. =oD

There are 3 modes, which helps with the replay value, and desire to keep playing, as they all offer something different. Main Campaign (find the hearts), Speed Demolition (destroy a certain % of the city within the time limit), and Survival (how long can you last) - and the tutorial is simple enough to fly through in 15-30 seconds...

I'll post more once I get further in the game... but right now, it's not a bad game if you're looking for something casual to snag that'll take you away from the (hardcore?) gameplay that'll come along with IB2...

yeah, the graphics are pretty dull... hardly any detail at all... and you can't see very far ahead, especially after you destroy a couple buildings and there's a whole bunch of debris on the ground... =o/

May have taken some inspiration from Blast Corps (N64).

Has anyone noticed that the Cyclobot (the robot on a wheel) can move straight through intact buildings and out the other side, without them having collapsed?

I haven't had this happen...

Have you had it happen on an iPod as well? Or just your iPad?

I'm also having quite a bit of trouble with the controls... they're just... wow. They need a LOT of work. Swiping usually reads as tapping, tapping as swiping, tapping as double tapping, double tapping as swiping... it's a mess.
