Just downloaded the update -- it's a lot better than I remember (the controls are nearly flawless now). The art style is great, too. In fact, I picked up the full 30 levels for the princely sum of $.99.

All I'm missing now is a few more sound effects and better explosions when you beat the level bosses -- it's a bit anti-climactic right now. The way achievements are handled is pretty intrusive (basically, the action stops); it would be great if the devs found another way to approach that.

Great work on the update!

Devilishly - thanks for embedding the link

Squarezero - thanks for the feedback. Working on putting in some more polish in the next update. As for the achievements, I'll look into seeing if there is a way to disable the linking on the openfeint achievements. I didn't really notice it in my own testing - but now that I try it - it does happen when you touch the achievement message.
