Last week, the action platformer, Wimp, made my day. Looks like Snail bob is in a similar vein. I love contraptions! Will wait for 8 pm PST with bated breath...then...Smash! Instabuy!

I don't know if it's iPhone 5 optimized, but there are 30 GC achievements totalling 500 points.

The leaderboards need clean up. The top 3 (all worlds) are obvious hackers. And the first world, that is visible most because it is the main leaderboard to show up (why isn't the TOTAL leaderboard the main one?), IMHO has the top 7 hacked, 4 to 7 being "smart" hackers that put a "few" points more than the real top rankers. Ah well ...

I just got this and I'm really impressed with the thought put into the puzzles! It's very clever, very nicely done, and I'm surprised it's not getting more buzz or support in the forums.
