Looks different and possibly worth it especially at 59p.
Anybody got it and could post first impressions?

this game is a good product.
both graphics and sounds fits the gameplay perfectly, accelerometer (no tilt adjustment) works nice and smooth, a lot of levels, and online scores make the game worth playing.

BUT!

i don't know if it's only my 3.0 Beta but there is no chance to go back (to the menu) after you fail (die) in the game. you just have to wait for crossing a finish line - and it may take eternity. so it's better (quicker) to restart whole game.

BUT!

it's only .99 cents. common, it's a steal. maybe it's not as great as space ninja but still worth a buck.

It's like a glorified version of Cube Runner. Looks really interesting and addicting imo.

EDIT: c) I really wonder why Paris Hilton is getting more attention than this high quality game published by Chillingo.

i don't know why but it was hard for me to write that sentence properly. viral helped me out.

a) I really wonder why a game as good as this is not getting the attention it deserves.

b) It really bothers me why a game of this quality is not getting the attention it deserves.

c) I really wonder why Paris Hilton is getting more attention than this high quality game published by Chillingo.


All of them work.
