Anytime TouchArcade says a new game is out, I can't see it on the app store for at least an hour, either from my iPhone or my computer. If I click on the appstore link on my iPhone it says link is invalid. If I click from my computer it does nothing. What gives? I can't see star wars yet

Links from iPhone are broken since 2.1

Links from computer should work.

I dunno about this one.
visuals look good, but the game play looks pretty bland.
I guess we'll see what the reviewers have to say.

The visuals and sound are definitely very nice, but I'm just not feeling this gestures-based gameplay. Maybe it'll grow on me, but right now I'm pretty unimpressed. The menu is pretty annoying, too; tiny text, have to drag scrollbars to scroll down or tap on More to read more, that kind of thing.

ive been looking forward to this game for a while. its very nicely polished and utilizes the touch screen well. from seeing early demonstrations on this game via youtube, i knew just what to expect.

I checked out your video, and my impression from the video is that this game is rather repetitive.
Also, I'm wondering if you have to time to look at the visuals or are you just looking at the "pic" you're supposed to trace to unleash your powers?

Meh. Looks really dull. I'm still holding out for Rolando, thought I'm getting the feeling it might not be coming out for a very long time...

Meh, I'll pass on this one, I don't like the concept.

Wasn't PhoneSaber Unleashed supposed to come out before this, to get the hype up for this game?

Anyway, I think, just like Touch Arcade, it would be more worth its $9.99 with more levels.
