Orbitsu - save the Star System!

straight from the application description:

"*** Only $1.99 for a limited time ***

An unknown force has invaded the Star System. The fate of the galaxy is in your fingers. Only you can clear the Star System and stabilize the universe.

Strategically launch orbs into the star field's orbit. Connect any 3 orbs of the same color to cause them to explode!

Any remaining orbs attached to an explosion will collapse and become Charged orbs.
Connect a Charged orb with 1 orb of the same color to cause them both to blow up. Clear all orbs to complete the stage. As you progress, additional challenges arise such as orbit changes, black holes, super novas and more!


FEATURES:
- Arcade Mode with 200+ Levels
- Defender Challenge: Defend the Star System by tapping on incoming orbs to destroy them.

- Combo Challenge: Rack up insane combo chains with no limits.

- Survival Mode: Keep the Star System clear as long as possible.
- High Scores
- Up to 3 Player Profiles

** Compatible with iPhone and both iPod Touch Generations (1st & 2nd Gen) **"

so who wants to try it?

The graphics look REALLY nice, but it looks waaay too frenetic for me.

Just...on-one mo-more match 3. No! The pain. Oh the pain! It looks good but I've got no money to spend. Not after Cortex Command.

Puzzle bobble's always been one of my favorite casual and puzzle games. I'll try this one out and let you guys know how it really is.

I couldn't resist, I went and downloaded it. The screens are nice, but seeing it all in motion is another thing. Very trippy. Its like bust-a-move on crack with the gravity and 2D collisions.

Yea, about 2 or 3 of the reviewers have only reviewed that game, and 1 or 2 other reviewers have only reviewed one other game other than Orbitsu.... I think I smell something funny, and it's not my laundry hamper...
