this reminds me alot of little big planet. looks kinda like a light hearted, free and easy game like LBP. it would be cool if you could make your own levels =D

So rather than being free they're bribing with removed ads and 25 crystals for $2. Not bad I suppose -- you can't get rid of the ads in the iPhone version for any amount of money -- but having played the iPhone version it seems the levels are designed to deplete your powerups until you run out and have to buy more with IAPs. 25 crystals will let you get further, but I'd wager not enough not to require IAPs to complete. Not sure I want to risk shelling out this time to find that out.

Acutally, its the same deal for iphone. There is a "premium" version that is out. I got it over the weekend for .99 and there are no ads, and they give you just enough crystals to unlock area 2. Its back up to 1.99 though so same deal as ipad. Not bad deal, I just hope this isn't a every 10 levels will cost you. Hopefully some more free levels are on the way. Or a level editor to make our own, then it will truly be like LBP

It seems quite fun but the fun will depend a lot of the level design, it's weird but I never tried LBP.

Meh ... not going to risk that it's going to hook me in and demand more money every few levels because I can't afford the powerups necessary. I'd rather pay once and get a game I can complete.

I bought the $1.99 version when it came out, but have only just started to play it . It's not possible to progress past level 4 because the game randomly crashes all the time. Shame, because it's good up to that point. Maybe an OS4.2 issue?

Your right on both, it seems quite fun, first time I played it I stop played too soon because I couldn't succeed reach a secret area. This time I succeed fastly and then played the game more, and it is fun, not sure if this will be all along the game.

Also I crashed quite often even before level 4. An Hardware shutdown help a bit but didn't stop crash occurs sometimes. I don't remember had this problem the first time I played it. Perhaps ios4 or an update of the game.

Yes but have you tried cut the music? It seems work for me but I still haven't finished level 4, not at all as easy than I was worry.
