Those Kiwis are sooooo lucky! Not only do they get all the games first, but they ALSO get to live in New Zealand.

Life is so unfair...

Grabbed this as soon as it was available, and love the graphics, storyline & gameplay, like the music, wish there were more sound effects (sounds for bomb release and burner usage would be cool), and hate the control placement.

The controls themselves are fine, both slider and tilt, but I simply can't play for more without few minutes without discomfort. My thumbs will also keep moving up the screen on their own accord as I play, and before I know it i'm dropping bombs instead of tilting or using the burner. Please o please add an option to customize the control placement and I'll be your slave forever.

Almost a 4/5 for me right now, and with higher button placement it would be an easy 5/5.

Loved the iPhone version, but the controls seems "looser", I'm banging into way way too much stuff using the slider mode. Switched to tilting and that's better, but still not as easy to control as the old version. Maybe the boost button is more sensitive/powerful?

Graphics are lovely, interface is great, but just need a few more control tweeks to make it a 5/5.

we'll add controls positioning in update. We tried arrow controls instead of slider but blimp lost it's smooth movements. We also tried d-pad controls.

What type of controls do you like?

Mmm seems cool and like the idea remind me how Po'ed was fun but it was more subtle because you couldn't fly constantly. Well not the same type of game anyway.

I should check iphone thread for more feedback.
