Taking one for the team with this. Love the art, the trailer is hilarious, I'm always up for something that pushes an overdone genre in a new direction. Even though it's $3 for what's essentially "another runner", I spent the last hour and 30 mins trying to get the App Store to work and I figured that was worth $3. >_>

Hoping this doesn't end up being the weekly "price-drop in 3 days" app of the week.

The following is just a bunch of random thoughts thrown together: This game is just amazing. No, I mean it. It just feels like it's not from this era. First of all, I'm pretty damn certain there is not a single frickin' appearance of IAPs. Second of all, there are a ton of boulders to unlock, each through different stipulations. Clearing off easy mode (which is like 5 levels long) unlocks a Challenge mode (for example: Hit 3 men without using POW!), normal difficulty for Story Mode and unlocked a drum for me to use instead of a boulder (which I believe controls easier or something, but at the cost of less boost ring things appearing in the level), there are 2 additional modes (not including Challenge...which makes 4 modes in total), leaderboards, achievements, IT'S TILT ONLY with a sensitivity meter (gonna try putting it on my iPad after I'm done posting this), controls perfectly fine (but I guess a set of left, right and jump buttons could easily work on iPad...hoping the devs join this thread) the music is awesome, the levels are lovely and even though they share the same enemies, all of the obstacles are unique to each level, there's a romance betwee...well, that'll just be spoiling the game for you, looks like there's a ton of replayability....it's just awesome. Putting it on iPad now. If there are IAPs, forgive me as I haven't unlocked what I assume is an endless mode, but yeah...this is easily worth $3.

Great find. Absolutely love it. Tilt controls work fantastically well on phone and iPod. This'll do me until GoatUp 2 hits. Magical.

Definitely gets my seal of approval. iPad retina too. Love it. Oh, and the Persian level has an appearance from the spikes in Prince of Persia. How cool is that?

Looks awesome. I guess I'll take the plunge even though $3 seems a little high. Lets hope the dev doesn't drop the price too quick !

Must admit the video looks great, just personally cant stand tilt only controls. I'll keep an eye on this as you never know there might be an update in the future which adds different controls.

Love the graphics though
