It's a good, earnest effort. Not really like Crazy Hedgy; more like Gears with a fixed perspective and a combat mechanic. The controls (swipe-based) could be tighter, but otherwise the gameplay is decent. Level design is pretty good, too, with well-placed checkpoints and a varied obstacles.

I'm not saying "wow," but considering that it's the work of a small team (and that it has no IAP) I feel good about supporting the game.

NOTE: I should add that there is a bit of Zelda in the game, too, especially with the environmental puzzles and even the combat. I'm actually enjoying it more as I make my way past the first few levels.

It's not quite what I expected, but it does sound very solid. Thanks for your thoughts about it, SZ.
