I'm not sure why, but I think there is some screwiness in the App Store right now. It was actually approved yesterday afternoon but didn't show up until this morning. Normally it takes about 2 hours or so from when it gets approved until it actually appears.

I can go more in depth later, but for a buck this is one of those no-brainers. This game had a lot of love put into it. You can tell the developers had a lot of fun making it. The voice acting of the passengers alone is worth the $.99. It is a very simple premise...tilt your boat so the passengers go toward the lifeboats, tap to throw life preservers to passengers in the water. In a game that is this simple in concept (not necessarily in playing) the attention to detail is crucial. They nailed this aspect. The voice acting that I mentioned, the auto calibration at every level start, the statistics that are kept, the art design...all top notch. I'll go more in depth later unless others already take care of that, gotta go to a wedding (not mine!), but cutting to the chase...get it while it's dirt cheap and severely underpriced!

it's really difficult on first impression... the passengers seem to move more quickly than the boat... gotta go to work, I'll play later
