Star Ride is an ability based game where you control the flight of your character, up to the highest point in the sky, jumping from star to star.
Every star you hit will make you fly higher and will increase your score. Take the blue stars to increase your score multiplier.

It's very easy to pick up and play, making it the perfect kind of game for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Its hand drawn graphics and an its original music contribute to create a surreal and unique atmosphere.

To play, move the character horizontally with your finger, double tap the screen and jump on the first star, then follow the other falling stars to fly as high as possible. To pause the game and go back to the main menu, tap the screen with two fingers.

Holy moly this is an absolute complete unadulterated ripoff of this flash game- http://www.ferryhalim.com/orisinal/g3/bells.htm only with bells and snow replaced with big and small stars.

This looks like some sort of Doodle Jump game. I think I'll pass.

Hi
I bought it
It's a nice game, really polished, the graphics and sounds are great, and I read in the game's blog that an update should come out soon, that includes worldwide leaderboards through Geocade.com
There's a review here:

I wrote that review. Yeah, I think it's got a good feel to it, and I was looking forwards to it ever since the trailer was shown on GAF.

It does have some downsides. I didn't like the way it handled ending the game, and the high score box that kept popping up wasn't needed. But overall, it's worth a look. The updates that the developer talks about also sound interesting. I'd like to see how I stack up against others

No DPad - iPhone and iPod Touch gaming. Who says gamers need a dpad?
