Hehe - how to lure Squeaker in 5 seconds...

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I've been playing this for the past 2 hours. Its an addicting game. A very unique gaming experience. Its a relaxing game, yet theres a lot to do. There appears to be a good amount of content and depth to the game. Must say I never played anything like this for the iphone but its pretty cool.

The game runs smooth and the controls are pretty basic, mostly involving tapping and dragging to move the characters around and interact with things. The in game menus are elaborate and well designed. So far no negatives. I'll post more about the gameplay after I get a little deeper in the game.
