I'll say this for the Colorbox crew--they really have some talented artists. They consistently release things that just look like something I'd want to play.

A video would be really helpful. Like what kind of gameplay is this exactly? The description reads like Fruit Ninja, but the images look like a cross between Angry Birds and Patapon.

I would say yes to all of those. Probably you gesture to cut things much like in Fruit Ninja, but instead of a blade you have a bird. This is just a guess though.

It's interesting that with all those influences, they chose to call this game "Rip Off." I guess this is some sort of ironic statement?

Those nice GFX remind me of Patapon. I'd love to play Patapon on iOS

Waiting for some vids & reviews to see if i'll grab it.

I can't wait to see this in action for myself!

The graphics look like a fun hybrid of Patapon and Angry Birds and I know it is a game about protecting your eggs...but I too am way too curious as to how it actually works.

I see you control a bird and take out the enemies by slicing them so, there you go, it even has a touch of Fruit Ninja!

I see the bird is different in each of the screen shots and have to wonder is it the same bird using different powers or does the player get to choose a bird from the start that gives him some unique powers through the game?

I also see by one of the screen shots they're using the Rooftop Escape (and Tiny Wings) like objectives to earn score multipliers, very cool!

Ahhhh I see now. So all of the Patapon-like enemies are trying to make off with your eggs, and you destroy them with swipe attacks.
