FYI, went on sale for 2.99 an hour or so after release. Not sure why they didn't just make it 2.99 to start (probably a ploy so they could show up on various price drop listings). I looked at it when I saw it appear, but glad I didn't buy at first. Anyway, I'm gonna try the lite.

This game is not all that. Thought it was gonna be a proper platformer but its just drawing lines to make the kiwi to get to one platform to another.

The controls are honestly making me want to rip my arms off and bash myself in the head with them. How is that possible? I don't know.

EDIT: No...just no. If anyone else wants to try this out and post impressions go ahead, but I can't take it anymore. Deleting.

Only played for a few minutes, but yeah, they were kind of annoying to me as well. Was trying to figure out how to delete a line. But a platformer where you're basically making ramps to get over things is not a platformer to me. And not particularly enjoyable from my brief test drive.
