    I've held off on this until I got home. Downloading now. I'm a huge Trials (and Limbo) fan and was hoping this would turn out well.
    Thanks for the impressions guys. It made work suck even harder than usual

    So, is this game more like "Find the one correct way to beat this level or die horribly over and over again" (a la Super Meat Boy), or more "Get good enough at the mechanics of the game and you'll be able to improve steadily over time and eventually 3-star most of the levels" (a la Super Crate Box)?

    If it's more like SMB, I don't know if my feeling of gratification due to improvement in the game will outstrip my tolerance for teeth-gnashing frustration.

    Thanks!

    I love this game! The devs nailed this one. I try to save as many clones as possible but they keep dying :) Not sure if this game will "click" with everyone but I love everything about it.

    300 clones! #8 on GC! Game continues to throw imaginative stuff at you all the way through. A lot of the missions are absolutely bone crunching I like it.

    I feel like even before you get to the *mumble* there's a bit of an homage to *cough* with some of the background structures. Kinda cool ... feels like "Badlands" down the river from *wheeze* Laboratories.

    Gorgeous, impeccably designed game that somehow manages to be both relaxing and difficult. I was in the fence wondering whether to spend $4 on yet another runner/flyer, but damn this game just oozes with atmosphere and originality. Sucks you right in.

    A definate must buy IMO.

    I posted earlier with my immediate glowing impressions...
    Well, I just could not stop playing and I'm about 3/4 way through the last world now. :D

    It just keeps getting better! Utterly amazing game.
    Never mind GOTY, this is seriously one of the best games I've ever played anywhere, anywhen!

    So many ways to use just ONE BUTTON 0_o
    The feel you get under different effects of the things you pick up is just wonderful. Really great job and yes I look forward to more levels and stuff!

    Literally one of the best games iv played on ANY platform in recent memory. Soo simple yet sublimely deep and engaging!

    (If anyone has James Blakes latest album "overgrown" listen to it while playing this! It's like it was created as the OST to this awesome game!)

    Going through the 11 Bit Studios FB page today, its kinda funny to see all the "mobile isn't for real gaming", "mobile will never compare to console", "real gamers know mobile is a joke"... Posts, and then coming here and seeing that there are developers out there that are able AND willing to treat the mobile platform this way, and give us games like this with a gaming community that's so eager to accept them.

    Lovin it.
