you touch and drag up or down on the left side of the screen to expand/shrink the block. on the right side of the screen you tap and hold to get/stay blue or release the finger to become red again.

on the iCade you expand/shrink with the stick and change planes with a button.

Default Game Impressions

I got a code for this one, but would not have regretted it one bit if I'd bought it. Simple idea, executed well, into an overall fun, addictive experience. Only negative thing I can think of is I would have liked for there to be more going on aurally, both in terms of music as well as sound effects, as that can add a significant amount of oomph to a simple idea such as the one here, but that's minor and this is still an easy recommendation.

This looks like a truly original, well-executed new game. I have to say, I'm quite impressed.
