I've never really understood the grievances when a game doesn't have achievements.

I mean, if a game is gret and fun, then that should be all that matters really...
Lots of games were good before achievements were used in games, and lots of games are still great and fun, including this one.

Adding achievements in a game should be considered a bonus and a good thing, but not having them, when the game is fine without them shouldn't count against it.

A game like Tiny Wings rely heavily on achievements for the gameplay, and it would not be the same game without it, but this game and hundreds of others doesn't really need them.

Just my two cents.

This game is simply brilliant!

The physics are outstanding, and the difficulty is building at a nice comfortable speed.

Nice touches like the black and white movie replays of your levels is icing on the cake, they even have different camera angles and slow-motion sequences when crashing through windows and other spectacular moves.

The later levels can be very hard to get through, especially if you use the last character, Stanley, as he doesn't seem to get as much momentum as the other characters. I gave up on using him after a couple of levels.
One place in particular I could not get him to swing around with his umbrella to get an apple, and after countless attempts I switched to Granny, and got in the first try. Maybe his umbrella isn't as long as Granny's cane, not allowing him the same momentum in the swings?

No matter, this game is fun and very challenging on the later levels.
I hope there's more levels to come, as I'm close to finishing the game now, with three apples on all levels so far.

Even if no more levels are forthcoming, I've certainly have had my money's worth of fun from this little gem.

Highly recommended.

Same here, i'm not bothered by achievements one bit, just enjoy the game

Anyway i didnt think i would like this as it seems 'another' endless runner. BUT i was so wrong, this games brilliant, love the animations, just a classic iOS game where you can have a quick 5 minutes with it and come back to it later for another go. Very good game, glad i bought it. Maybe there is still a bit of life left in endless runners!

Great game. Blew through the content and now hoping for more. Mechanics are such that perfecting runs is a lot of fun. After a while I realized I was in the top 5 on the leader boards. Decided to keep playing and now have a sizable lead at #1... Lots of depth in the mechanics that people aren't pursuing!

I really hope more get it, I would love to see more levels.

Agreed, Mr. mug. This game is pretty much perfect in every way. Controls, challenge level, presentation, value; everything is spot on. As good as Bastion is, I think Granny is my GOTW.
