Hmm... Nice grahics, seems like play like a 3d tiny wings or something, best that I can describe it.

It's got some bad reviews on the UK store, but I think it's pretty neat. I suspect the controls were an obstacle for some people as I spent a few minutes just rolling around in canyons before I got the hang of it and launched into orbit. Once you're there though, it's quite exhilarating. Better sense of speed and motion than Tiny Wings, that's for sure.

It's pretty awesome to leave orbit and visit other rocks. I skipped easy mode and played hard first than normal. 3 games in and I'm 121st on the leaderboard. Not too bad.

So far I'd give it 4 or possibly 5 stars.

Played a few more games of this last night and broke the top 100 at something like 93... but then this morning I'm knocked back down to 117 on the leaderboards. I made a mistake about the names of the difficulties. I started with Very Hard then moved to Hard... and mostly have played on Hard mode. I've tried Normal, which is a lot easier since you start out with a lot of snow on the ball... but my scores haven't been 1/2 of my top score (just under 1 million).

Overall I think the game is a lot of fun and well worth checking out. It's relaxing despite trying to go for a high score. Installed it's 39.1 MB which is pretty awesome as it's 3d and all.
