Looks cool, I wonder how much depth there is.

Cute and clever. Buying now.

EDIT - LATER: Yeah this is a lot of fun. It's pretty much as you can guess in the screenshots. Monsters, formed of letters appear and then work their way toward you. You have to identify the letters and shoot then away as quickly as you can. The monsters themselves bend, stretch and warp, so you have to pay close attention to whittle them down. I played throught the first of the 5 stages (which contained 15 monsters) in about 10 minutes. I then jumped to the 5th and final stage which contains 50 monsters. The difficulty is ramped up with the monsters moving more wildly and progressing down the screen to attack you much faster.

Found myself making a lot more mistakes on this last stage. Each time you make a mistake, the monster spawns a random letter in the air. You have to shoot it out of the way first, before progressing onto the battle.

Very very clever and original game. If you want to try something completely new pick it up.

Good work devs!

This is WAY more fun than it should be. Just goes to show, execution is pretty much everything. Although the idea here is not half bad either. A lite version is available. Everybody should at least try this.

Played the free version and loved it. Does the full keep track of scores?

Downloaded the lite a little earlier. Going to try it when I'm chilling tonight.
