I just purchased, was waiting for reviews to decide.....I'd rather play a premium match game anyday!
Hate waiting for lives/hearts to fill....this looks like an interesting idea, gotta give credit for coming up with such a new take on the match genre

This game is awesome! I support as many premium games as I can and I am a sucker for a good match 3 or 4 in this games case. Very polished, the cut scenes are great and omg the difficulty RAMPS. The first stage I'm thinking hmm this is pretty easy but believe you me when you start getting timed it gets a little tough. Great game, glad I bought it

With my little money left, i surprised myself with a buy from the back of my little wish list...and i'm frickin awesome surprised with this even quite innovating, but very refreshing take on the match-x genre.

Easy responsive swiping and tap/drag controls, great animated cutscenes with voice overs and awesome sounds overall to put you right in the middle of this movie.
Beating campaign mode unlocks arcade mode for highscore, though NO Gamecenter is available. Pity.

*cough cough*
Some match-x gaming wizards might finish the campaign easily under 90 minutes or even less, but i doubt i'm one of those. The difficulty all the sudden, well, finally ramps up massively at level 13 *cough* out of 26 levels.

Anyways, superduper highly recommended to any match-x fan with some little money left.

Edit: the final level 26 belongs to my most difficult and hectic endfights ever. That's due to four minutes time only, and the two bosses are constantly moving around your playfield to take away your clear sight. It's a mix of an annoyed rage quit and it can't get more intense and better. Lost Socks endfight was a walk in the park when i think back now. Lol, only in my book, though.

I could have edited my last post again, but i decided to give this game a deserved (but short) appearence on the main page again.

This was a 4 years long night/weekend project and their first ios game ever, and therefor i decided to give it a 5-star rating in my swiss app store. But i also mentioned that the 5th star was sort of a helping advance in the hope for the one or other update. Achieving the always difficult balance is definitely quite a bit off in this pearl, and yet i had so much fun with it.

Woot and deep phew, i beat the bosses. What a struggle and a sweaty forehead with exactly 0 seconds on the clock.

I made a playthrough without watching the cutscenes but trying to achieve the same score results from my first time. Without beating the last bosses once more, it took me 85 minutes. But remember, i already knew all tricks/tactics! For the average gamer i would garantee a 3 hours experience to only beat the game. For perfectionists another 1-2 hours, at least.
