Wait...so that's it? When they said 3 levels, they meant "finish off 3 levels and unlock an endless mode" or something similar?

Damnit. Seems all too similar to how I felt about GoNinja! :/

EP, you're my last hope. Any redeeming qualities besides the graphics (and based on GoNinja!, superb animation)?
