Posted my thoughts on iTunes. But can just add, that $.99 for this one is... a good deal indeed

I have been waiting for this game to come out.

So far I like the game, the controls work well and the game has a nice clean, simple look.

I am confused by something and maybe I am just missing it. When you lose, it asks if you if you want to play again. I don't see anyway to go back to the main menu, other than to close out of the game and then boot it back up again.

Also, there is a continue option at the main menu, do you have to reach a certain level to use it? I have only made it to level eight so far but it starts me at level one if I choose the play again option. So, maybe there is a save option after level 10?

The continue option is for continuing the game when you exit the game and go to the Homescreen for the iPhone. If you lose, you must restart.

Can somone confirm for me that this game is worth the 99 cents? I only have a buck left on itunes. Should I pick up this, or is there something else recent for 99 cents that is better?

Although you can argue that I am biased since I own the company that is publishing this game, I did pay out of pocket to purchase it and it definitely gets more time than many other games on my iDevice.

There is just something that is so satisfying about playing this game. True, it does not have all the bells and whistles with epic graphics and a storyline, but it does have a great pick up and play vibe to it and the sound effects that are in the game match perfectly.

Agreed :P. I am looking for a game I could get a lot of time out of though. I am going on a trip this weekend and want something that will keep me occupied for a little over 2 hours. Is this that kind of game? Or is there something else that would last me a bit longer that is currently 99 cents?
