I think the game is boring! If you've seen the gameplay video, you know how quickly attracts the difficulty. This has more to luck than to do with ability. Since the good graphics is also no use! I get the game does not load, even if the beginning, the images had piqued my interest.

Hmmm I guess this makes sense as a two day project... otherwise it would just show there is no premise that is too shallow for a mobile game... heck this would barely qualify as a mini-game sequence in an "actual game" (I could see it as a rotating lock in a RPG lock picking sequence).

It's not just this game either... Look at the flappy games, etc. Apparently people will try to call any simple movement a
"game". Most of the time it's not even close. Like a typing game where you just smack on the spacebar.

Still they made Worms and that's one of my kid's favorite games so I guess they have had their moments...

Question

Nice visual style but inside the game is not too much amazing gameplay. It's looks like as test for future games isn't it?
