My first impressions:

I've played Bounce Out in my Palm days and I was very glad to see an iPhone version. However, this is not the same Palm version. I may say it's better!

PROS

- Good graphics
- The old and great bouncing animation
- Subtle sounds
- Background music
- 5 different machines with different rules (each with 10 levels and 5 trophies to achieve)
- controls are simple (it's a match-3) but well implemented
- Power-ups
- high score per level
- It does not fade away iPOD music but mutes game sounds

CONS

- It can't resume (but a level does not take too much time to complete)
- It does not fade away iPOD music but mutes game sounds
- No online high score

It's a great game! 4/5+

If this the same as the palm game, I am going to be very happy.

Finally some Palm users around!

By the way, this is not the same Palm version (made by Astraware for Palm) but I'm enjoying it very much.

Can you not start at the level you previously were playing? Meaning no save option?

Is that what you meant by resume, or did you mean you can't start off mid-level, if that's where you left off?

Also buying. Super Bounce Out (Astraware) was great in its way like Bejeweled 2... Hoping this one will give me as many hours of fun...

Once the level is unlocked it remains unlocked. You can select the level to play.

It can't resume to the exact same point where you were playing after e.g. Home button was pressed.

This is the only thing that is keeping it from being a great game. Its still a good game, but the fact that it is missing a basic function that it had on the Palm more then 5 years ago is a huge downer for me.

I totally agree with you.

But note that the way the levels were designed the lack of resume feature has a smaller (minor) impact than in other games (at least the initial levels allow me to say this).
