That's the same as screaming "Super Mario anyone?!!?" on every new platform title. We have never heard of Rocket Bunnies before we've started working on An Alien with a Magnet!

I have played Rocket Bunnies a few minutes ago and apart from that something rotates around a planet, it doesn't like like this game at all!

I have played that one as well.. Yes, it has a magnet, no it surely doesn't play/look like the game at all! Just try it yourself when you get the chance. But, 'looking' like games as these, we take it as a compliment, thanks!

Also, I'm one of the dev's on AAWAM. So if you got any questions or need anything (artwork, etc.) Let me know! Also, our presskit can be found at: http://www.rejected-games.com/press/..._with_a_magnet

Really like this game, but what do i have to do when I'm playing a star-level. I'm stuck after level 5. Also, are you guys going to give free content updates with a new story? That would be awesome
