Haha, very cool idea!
Pitty, I just have a German account and I'm too lazy to trick around to get an American one. But I think I will check this out after the first reviews.

Edit: Better, I just try the free version.

Maybe I'll have better luck with this than with actual machines. I've only won twice so far in real life

Ok, 3 massive problems.

1) I'm not sure if it's just me, but I have absolutely no depth perception when I play this game. I try to go for the bear, the claw is apparently over the rabbit.

2) When I tried to grab a bee, the thing go stuck. I mean, it was like the claw was wrestling with it. The bee, if I didn't know any better, was clinging to the floor of the crane machine for dear life. It's like Toy Story all over again.

3) No pause button? Really?! That's a rookie mistake. A rookie that's never played video games.

I'm sorry, but this game needs work.

You can swipe left or right to change the view. Your claw may have gotten stuck because you're tilting the device too far. Finally, you double-tap to pause.
