Yeah, when Bounce On came out back in the day it was fun but pretty simple. Then they updated it a TON of times with massive free updates. I may have to pick this up.

Anyone get all 3 stars for Day 1, level 3? Fun game but getting all 3 stars is gonna be tough. Some of the routes necessary to reach all the candies will take lots of replays.

Off Topic:

Wish this dev would make Bounce On 3...

Argh. I absolutely love the visuals!
Really want to get this, but I already have all the "monkey ball" series by sega.
Also have "gears" which is very similar gameplay.
Both those games are made by very reputable companies that I trust, and their versions of the game are the same price, or cheaper.
I believe Monkey ball - Sakura edition is only 99c at the moment..
Unfortunately, if I were a buyer, I'd rather go with sega, the queen of gaming (nintendo is the king) rather than take a risk on an unknown dev, with little reviews on this game. It's a tough crowd to please on iOS. It is a big struggle for indie devs to get that recognition.
While the game is gorgeous, it doesn't seem to bring anything new to the table, which makes potential buyers rather stick with the original "monkey ball" version for an even cheaper price..
If this game had of included an innovative twist, I would have been more inclined to make the purchase.
But at the moment, it just seems to be a really beautiful reskin of the original..

However, my view is also slightly skewered by the fact that I have been limiting my iOS gaming budget for almost 6 months now, after realising I had spent more on iOS games than I have on all my devices outright cost combined, I now limit myself to perhaps $10 per month on purchases, so I am EXTREMELY careful with my buys. It has to be something really awesome to make the cut.
Although I have added this to the Wishlist and might pick it up on a quiet Wednesday release night.

Is there a game in the app store that's like Marble Blast Ultra? I LOVED that game on Xbox Arcade. Especially since it had multiplayer.

If there were any marble-type games with live online multiplayer for iOS I'd pick it up in a heartbeat.
