What no replies yet?

I picked this one up on a whim and I've really enjoyed it. It's a quality title and deserves a few more people on it.

It runs really really smoothly on my iPod Touch 3rd Gen and has a really nice crisp clean cartoony look to it. The UI is nice and friendly, very well designed and presented.

The gameplay? It's pretty much just another "go as far as you can" title, but this is one of the better ones I've played. You use the accelerometer to move left and right to dodge trees, fences, cows, etc. It has a nice mechanic in that in order to keep your rocket going, you have to collect stars. These stars are often a little difficult to get, so it has a nice risk/reward thing going on. You don't need to collect every star, you just need to go out of your way to pick them up occasionally. So, as the juice starts to get low and you haven't seen an easy star for a while, you start to panic and make mistakes

ABSOLUTELY worth the dollar and wouldn't be out of place in the Top 100. They really just need a lite version to kick start the game IMO - and do a bit of self promotion!

Doesn't the developer choose which stores the game will appear in? Why would you exclude any region?
