It looks very cool but I'm worried the motion blur will make it pretty difficult to see. Could just be me though, either way it looks pretty damn awesome and the totally free factor is fantastic!

FLAWLESS controls with no onscreen buttons. Tap left side of screen to jump, hold for long jump. Double tap for ground pound. Tap right side to slash, hold to stick to the ground. This is definitely for hardcore people who don't get frustrated easily.

You have no lives and if you die you have to restart the entire level. Every time you play a level you discover one more trick and get just a little bit farther. You can't slow down or stop. I haven't experienced any motion blur and I think that may just be in the trailer.

Whoever made this free is absolutely insane. It should be $2.99 and I would gladly pay $4.99+.

^Agreed. It actually reminds me of one of the best games on the appstore Kid Tripp, especially in the difficulty.

The only downside i can find in this is that it's really difficult trying to complete stages (1-11 onwards) with only reaction.

Reaction skills are a lesser requirement than memory. You need to know the map well before you can actually complete it. And since the stages are HUGE, i think the lack of checkpoints in each stage can make the game tilt more to the frustrating side, rather than the hard-but-enjoyable side.

Still, im liking this overall, and i hope you guys try this one out.

I agree with everything you guys said. Ultra challenging game that runs buttersmoth on my side. But, since i'm testing another game with no checkpoints and huge areas, i leave this for now. This is brutal hard and i suggest to tie your iphone to your wrist, just in case.

Wondering why my icon has a yellow background and no bag in his hand?

^That's my icon too. Not the same as the one showing in the appinfo on the first post.

Yeah, I definitely agree. I'm really bias because I love any type of memory game, but it gets quite difficult especially if you stop halfway through a level and come back later. You have to try and remember every monster and the way they move.

I didn't notice this until you pointed it out. It's even showing the yellow background in the US store. It's a shame because I really like the original icon.
