Those graphics wouldn't even accentuate an Atari 2600... no offense, but c'mon...

Not too shabby of a game. Add Game Center for achievements for a bit more lasting appeal... Also why is it necessary to have constant contact with the screen? It would be better IMHO if you could just play using tilt only while not touching the screen at all. I keep inadvertently letting go and having to restart the level. Kinda annoying, plus the finger blocks some of your view...

The game is so addicting. But the constant touching the screen is not good.

This reminds me of that other square-based platform game whose name I can't remember.

I realize it could be a good game, but you don't think it's weird seeing colored squares described as graphical showcases for retina display?

I'll still try the game despite the visuals, but sounds like it has some control issues.

Constant screen touching really doesn't make any sense.
And the first 20 (round about) levels feel like cheap tutorial levels, way too easy. But this is still the grounding for a good game. Somehow it's fun to play.

this is surprisingly good! the graphics are a bit of a letdown.
also, i dont get why i should have to continuously keep my finger on the screen to play the game!
