I wanted to like this game but I just never clicked with it.

For free, it's worth trying. I quickly deleted it and doubt I'll be going back

Oh it's a not so bad casual micro-timing training for killing some time in the lovely dentist's waiting room. Love the chiptunes music and sounds.

I know what to expect, and I'm looking forward to seeing how far I can go before I dissolve into a seething mass.

Free and no IAP. I may check it out since it appears to be level based.

Played through the first two groups of levels tonight. All in all its a pretty simple game. Tap to stop single screen platform levels. You pretty much only stop to time moving under/over enemies. At the end of the last level in a set is a relic of some kind and touching it also scores your run based on how long it took. The score is a count down type meter at the top of the screen so its no surprise when it goes from being gold to silver and then to bronze and then finally tin or something if the meter is empty.

My only negative is there's no GameCenter achievements or leaderboards of any kind. This game is a little like the speed running of Mikey shorts, yet with no way to really share the experience with others or help spread the word about the game. Devs tha pass on GC are cutting off one avenue for promoting their games. Still the game itself is decently fun and is a bit more of a casual experience for the platform speedrun type games.
