I was very looking forward to this one.
I love slinging stuff...but, hmm, this is quite a mixed bag...

The presentation is colorful with the typical circus music. Two volume sliders can help if it's not your cup of tea.
The game's slinging and flinging mechanic is great. Our artist has a good physic and weight and is controlled top responsively. You even can tilt left-right (mid-air) a bit to help Slinky. With enough excercise and skills, you'll be able to go for the speedrun times in all 15 levels *cough* yep, fifteen.
The replay value might be only for those who crave for getting on one of those 16 leaderboards (1 is overall). Therefor you'll have to beat a level with all five goals at once (all ballons, extra star, in time, etc.). The levels get more complex, so this task will get very, very challenging.
Without any big surprises i've yet to see (just unlocked level 8), *cough* the game could possibly be beaten in 45 minutes *cough cough* or even way less.

I would have prefered an option to let all the on-screen goals disappear. It only looks clustered and distracting. Pity.

Though i'm enjoying this game very much, 'cos i tend to go for some speedruns, a recommendation is impossible for me to call out loud. Whispering, buy it, it's fun

Choose language, installed MB 148.

Oh, no extra levels can be bought via an iap. Unfortunately.
