Is this really endless? I suck at it so I can't say for sure but I thought the goal was to reach the highest level then make your way back down to the bottom safely. I could be wrong though because I can't make it very far.

Normally I hate retro games, but this one looks pretty trippy so i'l give it a shot.

edit: tried and deleted after like 10 mins, not my cup of tea, but if you're into retro games, then i guess you would enjoy it.

well looking at your score at gc u actually have not really played this game, how you know it so good? i mean it's great title but just to be clear it is not endless game. there are different areas with different enemies and other features and there is also a top so you also get a bonus score if you reach it. it's really fun game with great tilt controls and probably in this genre it is the best game.

Can't always go by my GC scores... I play a lot when offline (at work, in the car, ect...) and yeah... I just suck and haven't made it to the end, so it seemed endless to me... SORRY...

I'm terrible at it and I HAVE an icade (amen for clearance sales ).

It's a tough game, for sure, but it's brilliant too.

I must have drank the Minter koolaid. Picked up this game and its brilliant. I don't like doodle jump type of games, but with the Minter flair and how you can attack the enemies..fun stuff. Almost made it to the 4th level..

how many levels are there?

when i first played it I assumed that it was an endless jumper, but reading posts in this thread I realized otherwise.

[Appspy review also mentions it as an endless jumper funnily enough]
