    Hey Gang,

    I gather this is a pretty controversial game folk either love or hate. It looks interesting to me but I hear it gets insanely tedious in the later levels...at the same time I foolishly think it still might be worth the $0.99.

    So two questions for you all:

    1) What happens when you die? I'm hoping it is simply game over and you start all over from the beginning but I know there are a lot of games that will let you continue endlessly from whichever level you finally were defeated at. Even if it does let you continue does your score get reset to 0 at least?

    2) The second question is this for the one time lovers of the game. Now, months later, is it still taking a prominent spot on your iphone/ipod and played from time to time or, after finally driving you mad, completely deleted from your device never to show it's sparkly bits again?

    Thanks in Advance!

    I enjoyed it for a while, when it first came out, but didn't love it. I thought it was worth playing and worth a buck, but I doubt that I would install it again. If I recall correctly, it went from challenging to frustrating, when the object density reached a certain point. Once you reach that plateau, it feels like it's either not possible or not worth it to soldier on. For the record, I'm not really a fan of Pangea, but I played this game more than any of their other titles (including Enigmo, for some strange reason, even though that is a "better" game).

    Thanks, I just heard from the developers that when you die the game instantly resumes from your last save point.

    Instant NO SALE in my book.

    I like my games to be endless (they can keep the challenge going as long as I can stay in the game) but with definite ends when I do finally die (when I die I should have to start over FROM SCRATCH).

    I didn't like the game. It was polished and well made, but core gameplay didn't do it for me. It's impossible to win even once you get to level 5 or so. One of my regretful purchases.

    Please don't buy this game... like coconut said, it is very polished and looks great, but the gameplay is so limited, and frustrating at times... I think i bought it full price too... probably skip this one for now

    yeah, Pangea has dissapointed me. The only game of theirs worth buying is Cro-mag Rally, which is still pretty good.
