Oh wow 4.99? I'll wait on impressions... I'm not sure if 130 levels is worth $5 given titles like angry birds

Add me on GameCenter (and every other network!) my user ID is kushykush on all of them!

Here's a link that describes the game very well with a gameplay video. It's quite complex and looks challenging in more ways than one.

One of the few games I still play on my Lynx (Super Skweek being another).
It's a very good game on that platform.
Those controls do look large though.
