8/10 from GameSpot, 8.5/10 from IGN. Nice!

Fantastic on PC. If the iPad conversion is anywhere near decent then this is highly recommended.

Appears to be loaded with IAP. I'm trying to see how much the highest pack of...whatever...costs, but yeah, I'm quite surprised.

It's great on PC, a little shocked to hear it's IAP ladened. Otherwise, like Strive said, it's a game to own and play.

I'm not really sure what to make of this right now.

You've got what seems like a terrific game with insanely complicated controls that just seem to work flawlessly on a touchscreen, long non-linear levels, tons of content, different modes, etc., but then there's a store icon or the word "Store" on every single menu page, it takes you to the store once completing a level, there are 2 currency thingi doublers (which when both purchased give you x20 the amount of...Christ...whatever it's called) and multiple purchasable packs.

Then again I'm still too early in so I'm not entirely sure the IAPs are necessary, but it's just so odd seeing all this in what's essentially an adventure game first and foremost. I get the whole thing with endless runners, but sheesh. :/ Oh well, I'll keep at it.

I really hope someone else checks this out and leaves feedback.

I always wanted to try that game on pc. I'll download it too! Just hope those pesky IAPs will stay out of the way...

I've only ever played the PC version and it was alright, nothing groundbreaking but fairly decent. I guess a lot would depend on controls.

Oh I'll hold off until you give your verdict on those.
