Looks good, but i'll wait for some imps before jumping in. Controls described in the description feels unorthodox, but it might work. Maybe a jetpack button would help?

I'm about to take the plunge but won't be able to post for quite a while, but I quite like the description of the controls. It basically means there are no virtual buttons obscuring anything on the screen. Sure, it may seem unorthodox and more like the control scheme was made with iPad in mind, but I dunno...perhaps there's an option to change controls?

EDIT: I still can't figure out what happened to the App Store over the last week! No IAPs in anything I've gotten. Wow. Also, between all these purchases and the Collector's Edition of God of War: Ascension, Mr. Casket is going broooooooooooke.

Controls: Hold phone or iPad normally like a controller, using thumbs press left side of the screen to go left, right to go right & both thumbs to jump. Absolute perfection.

We are in The Matrix. The machines are sucking on our blissfully unaware brains while we dream our IAP-Free dreams.

Either that, or it's coincidence. Which, frankly, I seriously doubt.

Only played the tutorial and a couple of levels, but so far everything looks, feels and sounds quality.

wow - was definitely not expecting this one today.

So far, the game is fantastic. I do wish that you could jump just by tapping both sides of the screen while you're still moving (you have to stop, pick your finger up from one side, and then tap both sides in order to jump)... but right now, it's not that big of a deal.

The level design, even just a couple stages in, is fantastic. The physics are great, the controls (aside from my little nitpicking) are perfect and responsive (and you can zoom out to view more of the stage by holding down on both sides of the screen - which also means that you don't jump until you let your fingers off the screen, which I usually can't stand, but here, it's not an issue at all), character's speed is perfect, music is great, menu's are nice, clear, and easy to navigate...

32 levels - Universal - widescreen support - GC board and 20 achievements (half of which are your typical [beat stage 1] [clear quadrant 4], ect... but then the other half do add some replay value [successfully land after deflecting off a planet] [successfully land after flying 50 meters] [collect 10 metal pieces while spinning uncontrollably] [complete a sector with less than 10% health], ect...)

It's insanely polished, and the graphics are great. Definitely recommended, and easily a top contender for the next TA GOTW. =oD
