Oh I'm all for bumping, but from the video...uhh I don't get it?
Hit your own color to increase points? Hitting other colors decreases?

Keep hitting your color and your score will keep rising faster and faster. If you are blue and you hit a blue puck for the 10th time, your score goes up by 10, next time by 11 etc, it always goes up by your streak count, which is the number in the bottom middle. When you hit some other color you switch to that color, the streak count resets to zero, and you lose a life.

Bottom line is: you just have to keep hitting the pucks of your own color. It's really all about just brainlessly zipping around and bumping and avoiding with smooth control and framerate. Mmmm, smooth framerate...

Yup, Got it about a month ago as well. This is a well designed game...simple but fun. Kind of like air hockey meets bumper cars. I like the concept. The accelerometer control is spot on and well suited for the iPhone/iPod. Definitely deserves support!!!

I just got this game today and I love it. I've had my iPod touch for a month now and it's one of my favorite games so far. It's simple but addictive. I would pay more than 99 cents.
