LOL... No imps here?

I've played it, but was wondering if anyone else already took a dive on it.

I've been playing Project '88 a bit, and I like it. The controls are touch left side of screen to move left, touch right side to move right and touch both to flip upwards. Controls seem to work as intended, haven't had any problems at all.

The goal is obvious: stay on the track for as long as possible, which gets more difficult the longer you survive. The music and colours are pretty rad. There are no missions to complete, no coins to collect, no powers to upgrade: probably one of the reasons I like it so much. No IAP.

Therre are 3 difficulty levels: Tough , Hard and Insane. There is also another mode which remains locked until the other 3 are completed.

Sure, Project '88 doesn't bring anything new to the genre but it does what it does very well, and I'm enjoying the ride.

There are leaderboards and achievements via game center and the installed size is 115 MB.
