If it went on sale this fast, it must be not be getting sales and that's a damn shame

People, download this. It's excellent. Just a fantastic game, fantastic execution, challenging and inventive. No IAP, this is 100% premium.

Bamba might be one of those games where you watch the trailer and think, "Is that it?" A man on a unicycle, moving back and forth. True, Bamba is a simple game, with simple controls, but that simplicity isn't a flaw or a negative in any way. In fact, Bamba impressed me with its challenging gameplay and creative obstacles, crafted around simply tapping the screen.

Controlling your daring unicyclist couldn't be easier. No tilting, no split screen controls. All you need to do is tap the screen to move forward, tap again to move backwards. Your goal across the game's 25 levels is to last until a certain amount of time has passed, indicated by the clock in the corner of the screen. But that is no easy feat, due to the collection of unique obstacles Ducroquet has designed. It might not be apparent from the screenshots, but Bamba is a hard game. Each level is a test of observation and reaction, as you deftly maneuver between all manners of rotating, shifting, swinging objects and other more surreal hazards, learning the patterns and proper timing for each new challenge.

Like Badland and other games before it, Bamba is yet another example of a diverse challenging experience built around simple intuitive controls, and its minimal style and quirky vibe makes Bamba a joy to play.

Really nice game, would have paid for it, if I knew it was this good. Sometimes it's a bit frustrating, but lots of fun nonetheless.
