I like the look of this depends how long the levels are as 30 doesn't seem a lot for the price

looks fun, but for 4.99 (kind of expensive) I'll wait until we see some review / 1st impressions.

Game Impressions

Ok picked this up last night and spent a little time with it and i have mixed feelings about it .

Gameplay is platform based with some puzzles thrown in . the puzzles mainly based around different masks you pick that allow you to use certain powers like levitation to move obstructing objects. Overall core gameplay is very well thought out .

Graphics although nicely drawn and animated look a little washy on the ipad which is due to the fact there is no Retina support which is a bit of an oversite by the developer. Sound is good as is the music so no complaints there.
Controls work very well there is a choice of a 4 directional D-PAD and a jump button , or a three direction swipe system left and right and swipe up too jump.
I prefer the pad on my Ipad but i would have thought the swipe system would work better on the iphone.

As i said at the start i have mixed feelings mainly due too the lack of Retina support and the amount of levels on offer. The reason i say this is because the levels i have played up too this point have been on the short side, on average taking me no longer than 5 minutes too complete. Hopefully the later stages are longer with more advanced puzzles.

Overall I recommend this game in the whole but not at the current price point unless Retina is added or more content .

Rolando-ish in a way?
Just saw the vid, This looks gr8 & has a lot of level interactiveness I think...

yeah, 30 levels sounds a lil' less for the asking price

Amazing physics platform game with top quality graphics and animation!! There are plenty of challenging levels (although i hope for MORE with future updates!!), plenty of puzzles to solve, plenty of obstacles and enemies to avoid and Game Center support with objectives/achievements/leaderboards!!!
I love the jungle soundtrack and the retina/universal support!!!
For this price, this is a must have!!!
