Well...

I finally got some time to check this one out, and while I wasn't initially too impressed, by the time I completed the first 10 stages, this one actually looks like a game I might wind up playing through to completion.

As some of you know, I'm a total sucker for gravity based physics games:;:Bombardiers Guild, G-Into The Rain, ect, and this kind of fits into that same group.

There's one touch controls which you use to control your ships thrust. Slingshot yourself around planets while trying to get to the end level goal in the shortest amount of time.

As usual, there's a 3 star rating system dependent on how quickly you can complete the stage. As you progress more elements and mechanics are added, like rotating barricades, wondering meteors and more. It can get pretty challenging, and downright difficult if you're going to go for the 3 star times.

Unfortunately, there's no GC support, so for those of you who are score chasers and achievement hunters might be a little disappointed, but the feeling of getting those 3 star times is great, and in itself, plenty of a reward.

I'm definitely looking forward to getting further into this one... =oD

I swear I have seen a game or two with this exact gameplay mechanic...

I think one was in the Bit.Trip series, and there was even one on iOS, if not several...

I'm glad you are enjoying it so much, though! Since it seems the developer was turning to shilling, though, I have a hard time supporting it. I mean... I really have a no-tolerance policy for that in my purchases, no matter if it's one time or many times. An exception can be made if the game is truly extraordinary, but we're talking Wake the Cat or Quell: Memento level of extraordinary, and that is to say almost perfect gaming experiences.
