It's TIM for the iPhone apparently, certainly not a bad thing if it's done well. Will wait for some opinions first.

the graphics look better than Fantastic Contraption though. Sorry, I'd TOFTT but I've already used up my budget this month

Hmm I actually like the FC graphics more; they are simpler but look better than this in 2D.

That looks surprisingly well done. Good physics, great graphics. Depending on how well the gameplay itself is implemented I'd say it looks like it earns its sticker price.
