Me thinks that the PR on this game goes awfully wrong.

awesome angry birds clone.
If you like angry birds and need something else after you've done it, download this game. Excelent gameplay. but be warned angry birds is better then this game, but not that much.

I was wondering the same thing. Many iPhone games include level editors in them so I am not sure why this developer decided against it. Hopefully it will be added in the next update!

Awesome art, but I'm not impressed with gameplay. Here's a video for HD version...

I bought the game after reading the following review:

http://appadvice.com/appnn/2010/11/r...trucks-skulls/

Actually the game is pretty great. The art is awesome and explosions coupled with extreme destructibility of the blocks makes this game quite spectacular. I have only played 5 levels but like it so far. The only thing I would change is icon's white background. On dark springboard it looks ugly. Dark background or flames would be better. Can easily recommend this game for the asking price.

Edit. More than halfway through the game and it rocks! Graphics, animations, effects, trucks are awesome. The game is really polished and has a lot of levels. Getting 4 bolts on all levels is relatively easy if you played Angry Birds.
I am really enjoying this one. It has potential of becoming a runaway success. I hope the devs can add the editor soon.

It's about screen size. We tried to make the editor work on the iPhone but the screen was just too small.

Every level in the game was built using the same editor that ships with the game. The only thing you can't do with the editor is alter global variables like the strength of materials. Otherwise you have a tool just as powerful as what we devs use to build the game.

How about having the option to download user-made levels on the iPhone version from people who made them on the iPad version?
