Art looks great. But I can't tell what sort of gameplay this one has from those screenshots. Anyone has given it a try yet?

I've tried it and I really enjoyed it. The graphics and amazing artwork never tires me, especially with the different levels.
And at this price it's a steal so I highly recommend that you buy it

In terms of what to do, you basically have heaps of Robots falling out of the sky and you need to tap them to open up a parachute / make them shoot up into the sky.
They fall from all over the top and you need to try and make it so that they don't hit the bottom of the screen (or side after hitting the bottom) and then try not to hit robots on your way up or it becomes harder for you to save them.

Um... That's basically it but it's really fun and addicting. And at this price you don't really have much to lose

It isn't much a matter of winning, but more a matter of surviving for the longest amount of time and getting the largest high score.
Think of Doodle Jump and similar games (but Better!).

And then there are about 6 different difficulty modes with different backgrounds and slight changes (lightning that can hit the robots, certain places where they need to land (they land before they shoot back up), Polar Bears attacking you, Ninja Stars / Shurikens flying across the screen + more!)

It works on both iPad (Yet to try as I'm way too poor at the moment) and iPhone / iPod and has Open Feint for leaderboards and achievements.

(@ Fu, I take back my previous comment, I think OF suits it quite well after playing it more - forget about Crystal.)

Game Impressions

This game at first seems so simplistic but really gets crazy once it gets going with lots of stuff to keep in balance as well as many ways to rack up bonus points if brave enough!

I also love how each level's environment creates very unique hazards and challenges to overcome.

5/5
