App description: Twist Pilot is a fiendishly addictive puzzle action game. You guide the constantly rotating Phil through 96 action-packed levels, making sure not to touch the sides while avoiding the mischievous Spiders and their troublesome tricks and traps.

The control system is intuitive and precise. By dragging the screen and timing the rotation correctly, Phil can be squeezed through the narrowest of gaps.

Not content with obstructing the player, the Spiders will start to use fiendish traps such as fans to blow the player off course or magnets to suck them in. Locked doors block the player's route requiring the player to search for keys. Huge moving blocks cause the player to take evasive action and plan the best route through the level.

You need to collect the Golden Rings that are littered throughout the levels. Stars are awarded for collecting rings and reaching the destination in time. Power-ups help you along the way.

The game rules and objectives are simple and easy to understand and the game is accessible to all ages and abilities.
For the more adventurous player there is a Platinum Mode, where players can pit their wits against the developer's best times.

The gorgeous graphics take full advantage of the Retina display, and Game Center leaderboards and achievements let you compete with your friends.

There is full support for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages.

Apparently the devs were behind Goldeneye and Timesplitters. It looks like a slower version of Kuru Kuru Kururin, but if it gets anywhere near as challenging it could be a hardcore experience...

This game is pretty awesome, I have always like these types of arcade/puzzlers. I think the controls work great, maybe could respond a tad quicker.

It actually looks very good, but its from Zynga and that energy meter on top worries me, played a bit of Super Bunnies and the energy bar was very similar. Any IAP?

I just played through the first 10 levels and so far no IAP present, the bar at the top indicates your health which you lose by hitting the walls or enemies. If you've ever played Kuru Kuru Kururin for GBA you will be VERY disappointed. I can already tell it's not nearly as challenging, you move much slower, and I think the 'camera' could be backed up a little bit so you can see more of the level. Aside from that my biggest problem are the controls; you have to continually swipe in order to move and more fluid movement is needed to do well, especially for the later levels I'm guessing. If the implemented a joystick this could be a nice casual version of Kuru Kuru Kururin.

I was really hoping it would be like Kuru

Thanks THOTH, it seems a no go at the moment until they fix those controls and the camera issues, thanks again!

I know not much feedback here, but the game is great!!!

Action puzzler, and the game is so cute and funny!

If you like games like cut the rope, follow the rabbit, spy mouse, firebusters, or catch the candy get this one.

It is solid, fun, and a great buy at a buck.

Highly recommended!

No IAPs, controls may be a little sluggish, but in some ways adds to the game to make it a little more challenging in a way. Camera issues? You mean cause it is zoomed in a lot? Well, that could go both ways, zoomed in looks fine to me, I might prefer it that way actually so you can get more precision on how to control the character.

Anyway, don't be scared off by the minor issues, it is a great game, buy it, you will love it.

Haha, I know. I was hesitant too at first. But this game is a quality game, maybe even better than Chillingo type in a lot of ways.

Give the game a chance, I did, and I like the game alot.

It reminds me alot of a quirky Japanese arcade game. Kind of like funny, have to think, solid gameplay, nice cute graphics, and it does make you laugh.

I know it's zynga, but maybe they are trying to change their ways. Much like gameloft did after their freemium experiences.

Someone mentioned Super Bunnies before, I downloaded the lite version, and that game sucks. Has nothing to do with this game.

Solid game, give it a try. Check out youtube videos, it's even funner than it looks. And no inapps believe it or not. Can't be zynga, haha
