Grabbed ENXPFYKYR4TK, thanks so much! I'll post a review as soon as I get a chance to try out this game, I've been wanting to for a while!

Is there a set format/resolution for the level bitmaps?

Please consider OpenFient for online scoring/achievements.

Easy is way too slow for me,
I'm in level 19 right now and there it's just not that fun to be that slow.

But its a great addition to catch some new gamers.
Thumbs up for one of the best games getting better

Edit: Btw, since I'm in the last world right now,
I don't see any bonus stages, does that mean, that I have to restart to get them?

I bought the game when it came out, but just got a chance to play it yesterday thanks to the update.

I'm not a big fan of it. This is one of those games that are hard not because of the actual gameplay or level design, but because of the imprecise and frustrating touch controls. I played it for several minutes trying to master it, but the more I played it the more I hated it.

I'm probably going to give it another chance because I enjoy the visuals and music, but so far I'm unimpressed.

I find the controls perfect, which is why, however hard it gets, it never feels unfair. The screen scrolls exactly how you tell it to.

So, is $1.99 the regular price now that the sale sticker is gone?

Or is the price set to increase on a certain date? And how much?

The reason I ask is I need to get an iTunes card, but have other things I need to do first, so it will have to wait...

I'm with you on this. On no game at all have I felt it's anything but my fault when I lost the ball. If only I paid more attention...

I tried the lite version and while I can appreciate the quality of the game, I really struggled with it.

Is there any way that a tilt option would work with this game?

I am tempted to give this game another with this new update but I will have to think about it.
