Gameplay becomes very dull quickly, and the level timer is just annoying. The problem is that sometimes there's so much going on the screen, that you - especially in the later levels - crash into enemies that are too strong for you at beginning, but there is no indicator, how strong the enemies really are. If you die, you start at the beginning of that kindgom. That's frustrating because it turns the game into a some sort of try-and-error-thing.
This game may be a time killer for a moment, but it's not recommended by me.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I managed it to see it as a challenge. Didn't get too far into until now, but I'll pick it up again for sure. And don't get fooled by the thread's title, it's less pinball but more… something different. Pretty unique. But not for everyone, obviously. That's okay.

Im with Vovin on this one. Not for me i guess. The timer is really what broke it for me. Couldve been a fantastic time waster like how clickers are with its tap-and-watch as you bowl-through mechanics, but the timer made it feel more like a hassle to play.

Oh, and there are full screen opt-in ads, im not sure why they are there on a $3 premium, but they are not intrusive at all so i guess it's ok.

Yeah, the game doesn't let you play at your own pace and that's not fun or cool, you have just no time to think about your next move. The game forces you through the levels at top speed. That's when you make mistakes and then it's: try again.
