Well, I'd not heard of this before but I'm certainly intrigued now!

Pocket Gamer had a preview (I think) of it a while ago, I believe. It looks great, but seriously Pete...your damn threads have cleared out my wallet!

Tell me about it...If it helps, it costs me just as much as everyone else!

This looks quite unassuming graphically but going by the contraption-building it could be fiendishly difficult and very fun at the same time. Looks like another wallet raid for me I'm afraid!

Haha, yeah...I know what you mean. It doesn't help that the file size is just 10 MBs. Bought, downloaded and giving it a go right now.

EDIT: OKAY, OKAY....LITERALLY PLAYED FOR 2 AND A HALF SECONDS...IT RUNS IN PORTRAIT AND LANDSCAPE, THE APP ICON IS AWESOME AND OMG...O;IFHKWEHFKWEH HE'S SO CUTE. THE WAY ODD CONTROLS AND MOVES ABOUT IS JUST....L;WHDEFWEHRKFHWHERF. BRB.

Alright, minus all the freaking out above...let me just say one thing: This game will be huge. Monument Valley-huge I mean. If the level of charm and innovation present in the first 6 levels is consistent throughout the 100 levels present in the game, I will safely say this belongs on every single person's iOS device. Outstanding work.

So far have done 30 levels. Nothing too complicated but this game oozes charm. You immediately have a connection with the little bots that reminds me of the totem in Monument Valley.

There should be a good 2-3 hours of content here if the level difficulty increases at the pace it has currently gone at.

If you like indie puzzle games, I'd definitely recommend checking this one out.

... I should have made it a New Years Resolution to stay away from any threads started by PeteOzzy.

Unfortunately, I didn't, and now I'll be two dollars poorer.

Thanks for the impressions. I think I need to give this one a try. Worst thing about having so many great games on ios is deciding which ones to purchase.
