does your thumb still block the leaves? or are there more control schemes... I thought I remembered hearing something about the controls covering up the leaves... =o/

They added in a new control scheme. Can't remember what you call it, relative touch or something?(kind of like a floating joystick) Anyway the answer is no your finger doesn't have to cover up all the action anymore.

It's not a bad game for being on iOS, still just a poor mans flower though =)

Right I just redownloaded this to check. And there's a sensitivity option which it recommends you set to maximum for the best view of the screen. Theres also a left or right hand option.
The flowers now are about 2cm away from your finger (to either the left or right depending on which finger setting you choose) instead of directly underneath like it used to be.

IMO its not a bad game but if you have a ps3 just get flower instead,
I suppose for 69p though it's worth a look if your interested.

What do you actually do in this game? Is it endless? And file size uncompressed? Thanks

I remember a lot of pre-release hype about this game, including from tA itself, and was excited to see it come out based on that. Once play reports came in, a lot of the excitement went away. Can anyone give impressions on whether this is a worthy sale pickup now, and have the early complaints been dealt with in updates?

Bought it just now cause what the hell it's 99 cents. But wow it's 150 mega uncompressed?! Went from 36 to 150 Mb

EDIT. Ugh this sucks all I see is my finger. Don't buy until there's a new control scheme or unless you have really small fingers

EDIT 2. Actually there is another control scheme. Oops
