I feel really sad for people who have to resort to desperate illegal measures to download a game that costs less that a mcfkn happy meal! It's a measly couple dollars dude, support the devs! Their not asking for much at all! A couple dollars here and a couple dollars there.. for hours of awesome incredible innovative new conceptial games delivered instantly to your device! Where else can you buy happiness and excitement delivered instantly for a couple bucks? (other than a dodgey massage parlor at Thailand..) least you wont be regretting this later, after retelling the story to your doctor!

I'm enjoying this game even more than I originally thought i would, so glad i only found out about this yesterday or I would have game release frustration, like I did with storm in a teacup..
The controls are AMAZING already left 5 star review,
Only purchased on iPad so far, bigger the screen the better..
Still can't believe how smooth the controls feel..I thought it'd feel a little awk but not at all! In love with this game already! The pink fortune cookie cat is the cutest thing I've ever seen.. Can't wait to see what other updates are coming to this amazingly awesome new game! I really thought I wouldn't need to buy another iTunes card for a while after spending 50 a month every month for about half a year..then this comes along..and mexiball..and red ball 3 and I had to buy another card! Sweet as!!!!! Any hints as to what we might see next?

I was originally looking forward to red ball 3 more than this but after playing both, this wins hands down, easily..

The only very slight wonder I may have is whether or not the gameplay can evolve enough over the 100 levels to stay refreshing and non repetitive,
What would be awesome is if you introduce another character, in which you can get by eating a bean or something in later levels, which makes tofu have different powers, extra long stretches , or another one that makes tofu fling off a wall but instead of sticking to the wall he is super bouncy and pings all over the level, in a bonus round, collecting heaps of the blue circle things... Stuff like that being introduced later would make this even more incredible than it already is..and keep the gameplay awesome and fresh, because no doubt in a few months to come, the AppStore will be filled with tofu clones!

It was worth staying up til 4 am for it's going to be even later cause I can't stop playing it!!
