Wow, looks very tempting...

Couldn't find any gameplay, not even on the developer's website, however here's a sample of the TV series to give a general impression...

I loved that series back in the day. This annoying little fella...
And of course, the idevices would be THE perfect platform for a game.
But I really wanna know more about the gameplay before tuning in.

Yup - this is one where this could be an amazing game, or really straightforward and boring if it's too simple.

Of course with randomization and mini games, this has severe Pocket God-mode potential...

If EA ever gets around to sending me the gift cert they said I won, I'll pick this up! ("Gift card will be DMed to you within 1-2 weeks" )

EDIT: Sad truth - psychology note: if this was $0.99 I'd have impulse-bought it. Why that $2 makes such a difference is beyond me. We truly are spoiled on this platform...

It looks like it could be cool, however I wonder how much gameplay there is. A gameplay video could probably sell me on this.

Very Quick Impressions

Ok, so far, in the brief 5-10 minutes that I've played, this game seems to share a lot in common with the !Run!/Cannabalt-style games. You don't control the walking of the main character as he continually moves forward. You are able to make him jump over objects by tapping on him, you can also make him slow his pace down a little by tilting you idevice backward slightly.

You can tap on objects to knock them over so that the character does not collide with them. You will encounter certain areas(gaps) that you will need 'draw' a bridge over or a platform to jump across(which doubles as a trampoline). These aspects of the game really remind me of certain gameplay elements from Tomena Sanner.

All in all I'd have to highly(so far) recommend this game to anyone who really likes the !Run!/Cannabalt/Tomena Sanner genre of simple pick up and play running games.

EDIT: Please read my comment on the next page before purchasing...
