Do you mean "Bane Drain"? If so, yes we wanted to put one really hard achievement in to test everyone

If you managed to get the achievement let us know, or if you have given up trying

Our game designer is the best at that level, although he did design it

Agreed, that last achievement is crazy hard. I really like the new challenge mode though, hope to see more of those. Thanks for the update!

Just left a review (thanks for the code earlier). Fun game! Basically select a "join" area to start (for one or more people) and then you are to try to flick your characters at a target. Once you flick, then you can press the button again to get one of three "abilities" that shows up - you can split your character that is going after the target, speed him up, or stop him completely. Your character takes a few seconds to recharge, and in that time you need to use your "ability".

Fun to play alone or vs other players, and feels a bit like pinball that you can (kind of) control. The target moves around, making it a fun little game. The help screen doesn't say much - I think it could have a quick addition on how to join and what the difference is between classic, challenge and team modes, though they are fairly self-explanatory. It looks good on the iPhone, and okay in 2X on the iPad. If you're going to play it on the iPad (which would be great for it), suggest getting the HD version.

Overall, fun game, good graphics, lively tune (that can be muted if desired) and a quick, easy, pick up & play game for one or more players.
