Hey, lead programmer (well, only programmer) on the game here. We've gone live today. It's already available everywhere it's the 28th of March, so if you can't get it yet just wait a few hours for midnight to strike.

A Lite version will be launching on Wednesday if the above video doesn't convince you to give it a try.

It is a universal app. While I didn't have access to an original iPhone to try it on, it scales upwards from a 3G (so the five of you out there still using a 3G will be able to play it ;-) )

Seeing the shadows of Toki Tori and Cut the Rope. Looks good enough on its own though. Tip: game will sell better with GC implemented.

I have unlocked every level in the game (by trick). There's an easter egg in the game.

Extensive Knowledge of CBT. Just send me a PM!

Indeed. GC support is planned. It's one of those things we didn't have enough time to do properly, so we decided to ship it with an update. Thanks for the suggestion though.

How many levels are there? And does it have retina display on the iPhone 4?

By the way, the game game looks great!

I found this while searching for reviews:

64 awesome levels including 4 bonus levels & easter eggs.
More levels in production and regular updates.
LITE version includes unique levels not in main game.
Gorgeous HD graphics.
Amazing character animation using a streaming animation system.

Nice and polished puzzler overall but I wish it'd not remind me so much of Cut the Rope. If Cut the Rope has a brother it'd probably look like this. Not to mention the chicken is the brother of Toki Tori. But as far as the puzzles are concerned the game is pretty decent from what I've seen so far. Definitely a keeper.

I'm seeing the Cut the Rope similarities (although it must be said it does so without actually copying anything, which is quite clever) but Toki Tori? Chickens just happen to look a lot like that. You might as well accuse animal owners of deliberately styling their pets on Pokemon.

No, it's what the chicken does when it's idle. It juggles eggs, reads a paper, and such. Toki Tori behavior. If that wasn't a similarity I don't know what is. I knew what I was taking about when I made that statement.
