Even though Luxor is coming out soon, I'm going to buy this one anyway. I'll post some thoughts in a bit.

I spent the last of my credit on snood. But I think I'll pick this up tomorrow. Price is great and it looks extremely polished.

So I've played 16 out of the 111 levels and I have to say this is a pretty good Luxor clone. You control your ship using touch controls and switch to the next ball by shaking your device (you can set the sensitivity for this although I'd rather there was a button). It plays pretty much exactly like Luxor expect there are a few extra challenges.

In each level there are "puzzles" which are groups of balls that stay in certain parts of the screen, if you shoot them with an identical coloured ball they will disappear but unlike the moving balls you don't have to match three, it's one for one. When you have cleared all the "puzzles" the moving balls will stop appearing and you just have to clear the remaining balls to complete the level.

The game also has a number of power ups which you can use and at the end of each level you can upgrade your ship using coins (that you collect when you clear a chain of moving balls). You can upgrade them five times each and they are:

Speed - Shoot faster/speed increases with strength
Bonus Magnet - Attract bonuses to your ship/range increases with strength
Rewinder - Rewind payoff ball when not pushed/speed increases with strength
Dirupter - Delays the release of new waves/effect increases with strength

Every few levels there is a bonus round where you have to shoot balls which split apart without shooting mines. This breaks up the game play a bit and gives the game a good variety. As well as the path of the balls changing the path of your ship sometimes changes so you'll be pulling your ship along a curvy line, although despite these extra challenges I still found the game a little easy.

Overall the game is extremely polished and runs very smoothly so it is definitely worth 99.

Seems like Blackbeard's Assualt/Stoneloops type gameplay. And the logo reminds me of the Bioshock Rapture logo for some reason.

Is there any video? I agree that this looks a lot like Stoneloops. Anybody played both? How do they compare?

I've got both of them and I think that this is better, simply because it has more variety than Stoneloops and I think it is much more addicitve. I say pick it up for 99 even if it is just to hold you over until Luxor comes out.

I couldn't find a video of the game on the iPhone but since it is a pretty much direct port of the PC/Mac version the videos that Devilishly Good posted pretty much show the game play.
