App description: From the creator of 1-bit Ninja comes something a little different...

Oh Hi! Octopi! is part arcade platformer and part color-matching puzzler that has you battling a never ending stream of Octopi.

With nothing but your trusty hammer, paint bubbles (and the occasional bomb) you must knock out rows of same colored Octopi to progress from round to round. Arrange dazed Octopi for large combos + points but be careful, the longer you play the faster they move!

* unique puzzle/action arcade gameplay
* simple, precise 2-touch controls let you
move left/right, hammer & spin jump
* smooth animation & 60fps framerate
* universal: play on iPhone, iPod & iPad
* GameCenter leaderboards

Not too sure I'm understanding how to play this one yet... but it looks like it could be fun. =oP

Immediately made me think of Bubble Bobble.

Two questions:

Is there any IAP?
Can you move left?

No idea...but you should probably add that question to your sig.
Yes.

yeah, you can move left/right (touching left/right on screen... no buttons)... you do hammering by fast-tapping l/r

no IAP sighted

edit: you have to remove 10 octopi to win a round... but currently i don't have a clue how to do that (removing them)... just hammering them senseless for now :D

yeah, everytime you tap left or right, you hammer down, if you hold down left or right, you keep moving in that direction without hammering, if you tap repeatedly you'll hammer over and over again while moving in that direction, doing a special tornado jump is done by pressing left right left right quickly...

no IAPs. =oD

You have to continually tap the screen? No other option?
