As much as i like to support indie devs i would like to see a video first, surprised at the 1.99 starting price.

Love retro graphics but these ones seem a bit more 'basic'

Yep, same sentiments.

Though "highly customizable controls" and "extra score boost" sounds intriguing, there seem to be no relative touch controls (unfair judged by screen 1 only) but definitely no GC to be seen in my app store.
