I tried the game out and found it to be really nice--a very fun and simple little game and you've got everything supported here that one could ask for. My one problem so far was that I couldn't get a multiplayer quick match to work as it crashed just as a game connected and seemed ready to start. iPod Touch 4G, 4.3.3 iOS, non-jailbroken.

If the multiplayer starts working then I believe this game will feel like a serious steal at all 99c.

Hey medianotzu, thanks for the feedback, can you send us your crash log to feedback@iphoneyaniv.com

here is how to get the crash log

So far, the multiplayer seemed very stable so I would like to check out what exactly happened there.


Oh and I think the game is already a steal for free!
