It's currently in review, and we are hoping to hear back from Apple in the next week or two, and plan to release it to the App Store early February! Here is a bit more information about the game. Hope you like it and let me know if any comments or questions!

The visuals remind me of Parappa the Rappa! That and the combination of Pac-man and MGS play styles sounds like a pretty cool combination. Looking forward to hearing more about this.
