I just saw this in the AppStore and searched the touch arcade forums for info but found zit. Until now. Anyone with impressions from the PC version or even this one? Solid controls feels like a must for this one.

I can only talk from the PC point of view but the first impression of this game is TOUGH AS NAILS. There are only two controls - one to shoot right (for enemies), and one to shoot down to push yourself up. There's a definite weight to the shooting down mechanic, and while controls are responsive as responsive can be, you have to plan ahead to get enough momentum to push yourself up - so timing can (and will) be an issue for some. That's the reason while your character is so far to the left and, get it wrong, you can easily be pushed off the screen, resulting in a restart.

For those who worry, it's checkpointed quite generously but be prepared to see those restarts a lot.

Addendum - it sounds bloody fantastic... ;-)

Is the amaranthon mode endless? Or just the levels played through?
