FishMoto - Indie racing-platformer-physics puzzler (trailer, screens)

EDIT:

Apple approved it yesterday -- will go on sale this Saturday on the 18th!

/EDIT

Hey everyone -- wanted to share what I've been working on so I can get feedback! It's been fun developing this game -- apart from the music and a couple sound effects, I've done it all myself. HUGE learning experience and I hope it pays off

Announcement Trailer:


iTunes description:
Quote:
You're an electric catfish on a rescue mission! Part racing, part platformer, and part physics puzzle all wrapped in an exciting, colorful package. Using your electric pulses to control a stretchy motorbike, your job is to rescue all the fish trapped in baggies and reach the exit as fast as you can without breaking your bowl. I like to describe the physics as being ‘surreal’ ⎯ they make for some crazy fun gameplay and the harder levels really make you think outside the box to get to the finish. Finding ways to exploit the crazy physics to improve your time becomes extremely addicting! Can you master the world of FishMoto?
I just submitted it to Apple yesterday so hopefully it'll be available on the App Store soon. Going to be making a launch trailer to help show off the updated artwork. Let me know what you think! I have lots of exciting plans for future updates so I'm really hoping it sells well enough to allow me to continue working on it (I'm kind of broke right now haha) -- I plan to add things like bike customization, level editor so users can create/share levels, and more gameplay elements for levels.

Attached are some screenshots
