I TOFTT and am glad i did because this is an awesome game worth the money.

It is, a hockey game with very nice graphics, but also has different modes such as Championship, Single Player, and 2 player.

In Championship Mode, you start at level one and go as high as you can, the opposition getting better at each level. I would appreciate online highscores for this. In single player, you choose a difficulty level and play a single match against them. I havent tried 2 player yet but i am sure it will be good.

I know its not a very long review but it is to the point. If you have 2 dollars/1.19 to spend then this is one of the better choices. I a happy with my purchase.

After playing this for a while, I really, really like it.

The paddle physics is *superb* — even though the play field is smaller, I get to use all the sides of the paddles (except trapping) just like I would on a real-world table.

Framerate (critical for this type game, IMHO) is great -- no hiccups at all.

Graphics are outstanding as are the soundFX.

Things for future versions (all minor)

-online multiplayer (whether wifi, bluetooth, or even internet)
-openfeint or Plus+ (achievements and/or high scores)
-adjustable amount of "rebound force" since energy is being added to the puck whenever it hits a boundry
-ability to pick up the paddle & trap?


minor nits:
-the double-tap to pause needs to be made more obvious
-I got my paddle stuck on the centerline a couple times
-a couple times on the harder championship levels (14+) my paddle couldn't keep up w/my finger

Overall, this is currently my favorite Air Hockey game, the paddles feel natural, I don't feel like the field is occluded too much by my fingers and the physics+gfx+sfx are killer.

4.5/5 stars from an air hockey savant. Definite buy for anyone that has the slightest interest in air hockey.

The thought that kept hitting me while playing this was that "if there was an air hockey table in Tron, this would be it!"
