    Hey look it's out! :eek: That was fast... I didn't expect to see it in the AppStore 'til next week. And it looks great too. Not to mention it is cheaper and better looking than Spore!

    It's pretty good s far. The first level really boring and had me hoping the whole thing wasn't like that. It seems to get better though.

    So is it worth throwing in the $4.99 for it?

    It's got great graphics and sound effects but that is about all.
    I found the game overly repetitive\boring, controls are sluggish when jumping and changing direction making attack jumps worthless. Take out the long cheesy intros, exit animation and the 2 game crashes which caused me to have to restart a couple of levels and there is only about 30-40 minutes of game play and sadly IMHO it is not worth a second play.
     
  9. Thanks for that Tadat1. You have confirmed my suspicions. Looking at the video on the TA blog, I don't think I'll bother. I wish someone would bring out Pandemonium.

    I played it a little more and can recommend it now. The frst levels aren't very interesting and the controls, even though they're well done, are tough to get used to, mainly because I'm usued to thrid person games that let me move side to side. In this game, you move the camera side to side, but not the character.

    The further you get, the more interesting the levels seem. There are trickier jumps and traps. Killing enemies is tough to get used to, but that may just be me. It's good though so far. It reminds me a little of the first Crash Bandicoot.

    I didn't buy it when it came out and I don't plan on getting it today, but people who did get it right away will be sad to hear that the price was lowered to $2,99.

    Well you can't buy it at the moment anyway. It's being modified apparently... :confused:

    Actually the price seems to $3.99. Still a drop, but not $2.99 as reported at various sites. At least that is the price that shows up for me in iTunes.
