Does anyone know how many levels are in this game? It looks pretty fun, but the levels look like they go pretty quick.

Hi there!

The game gets released initially with 4 worlds, 16 levels each. Keep in mind that many levels, especially the ones in 2nd, 3rd or 4th world are more tricky and require more time to complete, not to mention completing them with 3 stars. So, I really doubt this is something you'd be complaining about if you tried the game.

And besides, I'm already working on more levels to be included for free with future game updates

Game Impressions

I'm a sucker for great artwork, and this cute and quirky game caught my eye the moment I saw it! I was ready to buy solely on that, once I saw the trailer I had to have it. Played a few levels and they were fun, at first glance it seems to draw inspiration from games such as marble mazes and cut the rope, but adds quite a number of twists and turns to keep it spicy and challenging, plus the great art with an adorable character (better than Om Nom if you ask me. :P). Great sound too.

I'd love to customize that lovable monstaaa, maybe that can be an option on future updates? That would also be phenomenal on the Photo Booth feature as well!

On that note, one more thing: The "take a picture with monstaaa" feature could definitely use a Rotate function. A lot of my pictures are in portrait or happen to be in an inverted landscape mode so the faces turn up sideways and upside down respectively which is a shame.

Keep up the great work Maciej! Loving the game! It's a great, polished gem where you can truly see the love, and hard work that was put into it!
