Nice! Downloading now. I felt like there really wasn't much for me out of this week's Wednesday/Thursday release roster, so this is quite welcome. Looks great!

Same here, nothing worthwhile to download except for Alien Breed (which I regret). So this is an insta-buy for me

Downloading now and will give comments later.

This looks pretty great. If this is on the same level as 10000000 and Dungeon Raid in terms of quality, I'll definitely be getting it. Looking forward to impressions.

Initial observations

Game plays portrait style, there's a black bar on the bottom of screen. You control the bumper with your finger, it tracks your movement. Using the black bar you don't have to cover any of the play area which is really nice!

In the town portion the controls are god awful. There's no virtual pad. It seems kind of like you tap the side of the screen for the direction to move but it's a royal pain to line up and talk to anyone. Hopefully I'll get used to it but it really turned me off.

In game you have different spells that you can use while playing. There's a virtual A and B button. Hitting A shoots a fireball and B does some wind spell. If you cast right as the ball hits the bumper you get a different spell, A makes the ball clear through anything in its path for a short time, B turns the ball into a fairy. Also different spells if cast at the start before putting the ball in play. Not sure in you get new spells later, I would think so!

So far really enjoying it and who doesn't love the old wizard "AWWW YEAH!" icon?

Bought this for my PSP and while I liked it a lot it is very hard, maybe its the fact that ive been spoiled by all the relative touch brick breakers I played on iOS.

Very nice game, I feel this will be much nicer on iOS than as a Mini.

Favorite games: LittleWing Crystal Caliburn, Legends of Yore, Hook Worlds, Phoenix HD, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Spectral Souls, Bastion, Avadon, Dariusburst SP, Aquaria, King of Dragon Pass & Starbase Orion
