I tried their other $2.99 game (Mystery Block) and, while it wasn't horrible, it was not worth the price at all. That, and their support page is in japanese so I have no clue how to contact them >.>

Point and case, I will pass on this also.

I was considering this until I saw that purple monkey thing. It just gives me the creeps This does actually look kind of amusing, but the price makes it a no-go until I can try a lite version first.

The only 8 levels is putting me off this for the price, especially relative to some other recent releases that offer much more.

It's now only $0.99, so I TOFTT.
It's basically a wizard themed shmup only the wizard moves pretty slowly. Also you die if you move off screen. Definitely not worth it, I'd avoid it.

Thought so when I saw it. Graphics could use some work, too. Meh...

I really wish there was another control method. That's the biggest turn off since all you use is a d-pad with super small buttons. Maybe if it had a swiping method and tap to fire it could have been a lot more enjoyable. Especially for a game that has obstacles like rocks and trees pulling you back into a game over because you can't move properly.
