I just downloaded this and beat the first stage and I gotta say, if I had known about this game before I would have gladly paid the original asking price.

Looks really cool... I really regret only getting the 16GB iPhone at times like these...

I'll have to store it in iTunes until I can make some room.

My 1-minute review:

Artwork = brilliant
Overall presentation = great
Graphics = nice
Story = decent
Gameplay = super-fail
Controls = mega-fail
Fun-factor = epic-fail

Tried it on an iPad 2. Deleted after the first level.

Bad controls, too much going on on-screen, lack of awareness or that 'satisfaction' as you're playing.

It's a shame - I was starting to love it till the actual game started.

If this is someone's idea of a game full of fail, please hook me up with all the fail you can supply, especially for free.

Looks and plays just great for me.

No kidding... they've got tilt, drag, and joystick controls... if you can't play with one of those, well... =o/

the gameplay is great, on hard it's a full on arcade like experience... the combo/chaining system is pretty decent too...


Oh well... I"m loving it... =oD


But I'm sure there's gonna be people that think it sucks... can't please everyone...
