It *looks* cool enough and potentially fun, but I can't discern from the video how the game controls actually work.

I just gave it a quick try and so far I'm impressed. The only game mechanic so far is tap to jump. It's fast paced, very polished, and actually it's pretty damn hard! You get 3 stars for collecting all the starlets in each level, beating the level, and doing it fast. Doing it fast is the most challenging aspect for me, and if you die enough times they offer an extra heart so you can get hit twice. It's got Gamecenter leaderboards but unfortunately lacks achievements. Recommended for fans of whatever you call this type of genre (spinning platformers?)

While this whole...ummm...genre (?) isn't in any way new on the App Store, it certainly looks like one of the most fun ones I've seen out there. Might buy it in a while.

OK I just had to chime in again and say how much I LOVE this game. It's awesome. Imagine if SMB became a spinning platformer and and here's what you'd get. It has that 'just one more try' appeal, and you'll die a ton of times. I'm almost through the first world with 3 stars on everything, luckily you don't have achieve the time based star at the same time as obtaining all the starlets so it's not impossible.

Fellow masochists that are cracked out on Bitless needs to pick this up!!

Amazing, amazing, amazing. Yep, that Super Meat Boy comparison was spot on. Brutally hard, gorgeous, addictive, fresh, new, amazing, amazing...yeah, you get the picture. A steal for a dollar. Can't recommend it enough. Morbidware are definitely THE next developers to look out for...can't see this going anywhere but up. I'm off to sleep.

AMAZING!

All it does is crash for me when loading system 01. Does this happen to anyone else? I'm running a 4th gen iPod.
