Looks good... except the Price Tag.
Seems like more games are ending up $10 each

What is the playing time?
Bought several before for my Itouch and those I got done within a few hours.

It does look good but the price may be a little much considering how many similar games are out and most of them are $5. Oh...and Stoneloops.

By MumboJumbo?

Let's see... I'll get this when Stoneloops return to the store. Provided it drops in price, of course.

Would've given this one a chance, but price is very steep. PC version of this game costs only 6.99$!

YUCK! MumboJumbo. No need to support them.

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.

Sale 99 cents. In my opinion, one of the best games of this type for the iPad (I paid $9.99 with no regrets )

This is a must have at full price and a stupid no brainer at a buck.
