My impressions from the version released in Canada in 08-23-2010:
I picked this up this morning and I was expecting something like "Fowlplay' (which I like) but Pigeon is a completely different experience.

I noticed that the game is developed by Creative Patterns (Turn Episode 1 is one of my top 5 puzzle games on the appstore), and they have done it again: This shows great attention to detail and a very enjoyable gameplay.

I love the music, the art, the way u control Philby -the pigeon- (tilt forward to speed up and backward to slow down) and the minimaps.

The aim of the game is to hit targets and complete the missions ( 45 missions in total: 15 missions/city). There's 3 cities: Cockney, Gaulle and Metro City. U can achieve gold, silver or bronze medal according to the points obtained but it's necessary to get a bronze medal to unlock the next mission.

There's some power ups (food) to increase the energy and tons of objects ( hats, balls, boots) thrown at you by the characters, that make you decrease your energy level.

I have some suggestions:
- Add more food or power ups (I played 5 missions so far and was only able to get 2 power ups , compare to tons of red objects thrown @ the pigeon).

-Online leaderboards (Open feint, plus+ or apple's Game center).

Overall, I'm really impressed, highly recommended.

Looks like it has a fair bit of polish to it, it looks great and the concept of it is awesome. Especially love the trailer, for such a cheap price you can't go wrong, bought when it comes out in Aus.

Top 3: Dead Rising, Infinity Blade, Dungeon Hunter 2,

Can't wait to pick this up at Midnight. I'd say this is one of the most stylish games in a long time. Looking at the trailer and posters in the Upcoming Thread, the Devs really are on point here. Hats off to I-play.

How come you have access to the game, it isn't available yet as far as I see in the Canadian Appstore.

Verrrry nice game, well worth the price. There is a campaign in different cities, each city has missions split into bite size pieces. You get a medal based on performance yadda, yadda.

Graphics are beautiful, gameplay is mainly tilt with a timely tap to drop your poop on unsuspecting heads below. You get a streak (yes, I'm thinking that too) if you manage to unload without missing! Pigeons need praise too guys!

Anyway, very quick impressions after 5 minutes. This and Lite-Brite are my must haves for the past 24 hours.
