Flying Hamster is 99 cents?

Sorry if this is old, I just saw it posted for 99 cents and I'm pretty sure it used to be like $5 or something

Eh, I still won't buy it because it doesn't have level-selection :/ I'm sure it's a great game and all, but what's the point of those awesome final levels if most players won't even be able to get to them?

OK, I lied. I gave in and bought it in the offbeat hope that the developer will one day update the game with a level-selection option :0

Tell me how it is. I'm considering buying it.

TouchArcade reviewed the game before and gave it high marks. It's a good game, it runs very smoothly, has great polish and good controls to boot.

Unfortunately, as a casual gamer, it does irk me that I'll probably never be able to get to the final levels due to the difficulty... though I'm sure this "all-in-one-go" attitude might appeal to hardcore gamers who were reared in arcade-style games.

The game trailer and description can be found below... An 83% discount off its original price of $5.99 seems like a steal at the moment!
