Looks interesting graphically, but I'm somewhat suspicious gameplay may mainly consist of that old "guide something through a maze without touching the walls" mechanic.

Tempted but might wait for SZ's impressions.

LOL! I won't be able to post impressions for a while -- today is family day in my household. Just from a quick run, it's a gorgeous variation on a marble/labyrinth game.

Your suspicion is correct. Extremely polished, and conceptually and visually rich, but the gameplay is familiar. Seems to be the kind of game that you play to see what the designers came up with next.

Okay - second TOFTT by me...
Impressions soon!

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.

It's ok, take your time, just that I trust your impressions

I know it'll be more of an 'old' gameplay, but I'd like to know if there are enough twists or if the art/atmosphere the game presented is worth the download. I can't resist this kind of hand drawn artworks.

Yep, that's just what it is. Got the XBox version myself — it looks fantastic, but the gameplay is a tad meh.
