Absolutely. Love the simple yet colorful look and lot of content in the description. Can't beat the price nor a file that small.

I really don't know how you do it. This is one of the best, most generous updates I have seen. You could easily sell this as a sequel but you give it away as an update.

I continue to be impressed with Donut Games.

Does anyone here recommend this game? If anyone could give a quick review, that would be great. How many levels? Difficulty? Replayability? Controls? etc. Thanks for any help in advance.

Edit: Just watched a review on YouTube for this game, and by the looks of it, if you lose at any point, you have to start all over from the very first level. Is it true you can't choose which level to play? That's stupid.

What you watched was the pre update. The update just came out a couple of hours ago. This added 50 levels that you earn stars for depending on your performance. Game saves with every level.


This game is a steal at .99.

Do the original levels still work the way I mentioned, or just the new ones?

There are 50 new individual levels that work in the trademark Donut Game fashion - score certain amount of points and get rewarded by 1, 2 or 3 stars. Nice little physics puzzles that you must work out. If you don't finish that level for whatever reason (enemies get you, run out of stones, etc) then you start at that level again. No need to replay the other levels unless you want to increase your score.

The original 5 levels are now called the "Arcade Play." Work your way through 5 levels to get the highest score possible and earn a spot on the leaderboards. On that particular mode when you die you start over from level 1.

Additionally there is a "Target Practice" mode which is another score as much as you can mode. In that mode you are given one stone - each time you hit a target you get another stone. Another endless type of mode.

Quite an amount of value for your buck (literally).
