It might not look like that much but I've been following this for some time now. Quirky games are pretty much my forte and this looks very polished as well

I agree, looks interesting...quirky games are my weakness, too. Wondering if there's GameCenter?

I dont know how but the Developer screwed something up and my Game is complete in portuguese. Changing my iDevice even to English/United States or English/United Kingdom doesn`t fix this bug.

As far as I go I would advise everyone at the current moment with holding back with buying the Game till the Developer fix this Bug and the other Bugs that might be too left in the Game.

Too bad about the language bug. This game looks like a clever, time-waster.

It`s not that much of a Drama since the core Gameplay Mechanic isn`t really hard to understand but...some might get sick of seeing a Tutorial in a language they aren`t used to read from time to time and might just request a refund from Apple before even trying the Game further out.

Looks really cool. Is it tilt or tap left/right?
