App description: Help Save the Furries across 60 levels in this puzzle-adventure! Furries are cute green creatures that like to visit strange planets and then stroll about oblivious to the dangers around them.

Where you are needed is to tap and swipe pinballs, ropes, logs, crates, carts, switches, fans and all sorts of other items to help create a safe path to the exit. Make sure you keep the Furries safe from strange galactic creatures, spikey pits, huge explosions, giant drops and becoming the main dinner of the evil Furax.

Developed by SDP Games and published by BulkyPix, Save the Furries is playable in either landscape or portrait orientation, and comes with Game Center support.

In all honesty, this game looks pretty good, but I have to wonder is it worth the $3 price tag. (technically it might be, but basing it off of AppStore culture/prices)

Guess I'll take the plunge and let every one know if it's worth it or not.

Thanks for TOFTT. BulkyPix used to be a no brainer buy, but Tiny Empires moved them into the " nickel and dime" category. It's their only one that I'm familiar with, but something to watch for. Most of their games have been very good.

Yeah, it look pretty good. It's the $3 price tag that has me worried. Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion is $3.

Whoa, I didn't notice that it was $4. Man, I feel like I'm about to take a serious plunge on this one. And even if I give A++ impressions, still no one will pay $4.

Huh! Just pressed buy, so no going back now

Quick Impression

The graphics in this game are very, very good and can possibly rival some of the bigger 3D titles out there. The game is pretty much a puzzle platformer. You have to use different mechanisms to get to the end of the level as well as figuring out how to get the medals along the way. I'm playing on an iPod touch and everything runs smoothly for the most part, but the game requires you to move a ball around to move things and this can be quite difficult/frustrating on the small screen. Ugh, how I long for 4.7" screen (apple hear my cries or Android step up your community/support).

Anyways, you will sometimes find yourself wishing for more screen real estate when you play this game on the iPod/iPhone. there is an iPad version, in which this will more than likely play better on, but it will cost you another $4. I can't help but wonder why they didn't make the game universal. Maybe they felt the price justified the game itself and maybe it does. But with games like GTA: III, and so forth, being universal for $5; I have to think it won't sell to well, especially on the iPod/iPhone.

For anyone with an iPad, even though i don't have one, I'd suggest checking out this game. For anyone with an iPod/iPhone, I say "MEH". When I write my review, I'll hopefully have something more eloquent then meh to say.

I've only experienced a few crashes! TBH, just about every game I've bought in the last 2 weeks has at least crashed a few times.

It's prolly the platformer part of you that loves it!

But yeah, it is a great game. I wish I could have done more to spread the word for it, but...ya know...
