the controls were a little insensitive for me at first... but I see why they did it. so you don't fall off as much

it's really nice so far. on level 9.

you swipe/hold to move in the direciton you want. if you do a short swipe, you won't move a complete step and simply tilt that way. but it makes sense this way I think for this game.

ok, the controls are good. I finally realized swipe/hold is the right way to do it. it's the duration of the hold that matters rather than the length of the swipe.

I think it's a great game.

I suggest that people don't automatically go to the "?" spots because that tells you how to get across tricky areas. It's a better "puzzle" game if you don't get those hints. I thought those were tutorials, but later on in the game, it just seems like a walkthrough. I think the dev should eliminate those as default.

Yes, these help signs make it very easy...most often too easy.
Some things:
I still cant figure out how to get all minicubes in some levels,
13, 16, 17, 18, 22, 24...that is the true challenge and I hope it
is really possible!
And there is a mistake in the german translation in the menue
and perhaps it is also wrong in the english version?
When I tap the in-game menue, first option is "restart" (neu anfangen")
but it seems to be the continue button. And second is called "again" ("wieder").
I think this is just a tranlsation mistake and seems to be restart...
What about the english menue?

Please tell me, when you finished it! I start to believe it is impossible!

I just managed to get all the prisms for level 16 so it's definately possible. It took about half an hour of searching though. Some of the puzzles are pretty ingenious. I still have no idea how to get them all for level 13 though.

But you also see the missing ones in level 13, right?
At the end? On the robots right before reaching the finish...

Did I mention? I LOVE THIS GAME!

Just this second i got 20/20 on level 13. The best help I can give (without giving anything away) is study the map. Anything that is not black you can roll on (even if you can't see where you are going)

This is without doubt my favourite app too. Amazing!!

WOOO! Got Lv. 26

It comes with a unique bonus track that sounds like a tropical mario track and its damn hard!

EDIT: Completed it now, the credits are nice and at the end it says "GAME OVER" in retro text.

Level 16 is damn hard to collect all the prisms for but the trick with it is to use the overhead map and second long pillar where the row of 3 prisms are.
