Looks amazing. I'm just concerned with the use of tilt to do such a simple task. I'd prefer a 'tap to walk here' control scheme for what looks like a Monkey Island - inspired game.

Yeah, it does look pretty good. Although considering it's only $0.99 I doubt the game is particularly long.

I'm eyeballing this one too. Hope we get more info on it soon. I'd TOFTT but I'm a broke puppy until next week.

Not sure how much of a game this is going to be. Empire Of The Sun are a band out of Australia - this looks purely promotional.

Also there is already a 5-star review on the Australian Appstore - "Very enjoyable and interesting app"


I'd steer clear. Although they ain't a bad band at all really...

I would gladly have taken one for the team on this as I really like their album but it doesn't (yet) seem to be available where I am. Interested to see how it is.

I'm a big fan of the band so I got it straight away. A very weird product I must say. There are movies of the two main guys interspersing pretty non-interactive adventure levels.
We're talking static picture, shake the iPhone to make apples fall from tree, break apples with touch, etc. Not exactly Gangstar-quality gameplay.
It is interesting as a fan of the band however
