    I saw it and considered starting a thread like this. Please let me know if anyone tries it! I love games like this and especially cute ones.

    Is that the game that was on the blog a few days ago where you... eh, bounce through all the levels... I think?

    Bounce On

    Just played the first 3 levels. I'm quite impressed. The only thing that bothers me right now is the physics. The ball seems to float, and abide gravity.

    Okay, I've played through the first few levels and so far this is what I think:

    The music is a good fit and sound effects are well implimented. The graphics are simple but not overly impressive to be honest. Gameplay is fun, with some (limited) replayability to get within the time limits. Overall, very cute and I can see myself playing this frequently. If you enjoy this sort of game, I'd say buy it.

    Edit: I've played it some more and have some more comments to make. The way you move level to level is clever. I enjoy tilting my iPod to move on. I also love the wiffle ball powerup. One thing I don't like is how hard it is to get gold. I've been missing the gold by lot of seconds on third or fourth playthroughs of a level. It's super hard. And I have yet to recieve a gold. Anyone else having this problem? I think I'm playing in medium mode. Maybe that's why.

    Ok, first impressions (played the first 3 levels):

    I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Like someone said before, it reminded me of Super Mario Bros 3. So far, only have gotten one upgrade (paints the ball like a soccer ball, and you jump higher).
    Also, the way you end the level is cool (by shooting yourself with a cannon :D ).
    Graphics are nice, it looks like you are in a cartoon.

    I'll keep updating here while I continue playing.

    I'm sorry, but haven't had a chance to play. I've been doing the only shopping I can stand and have tons of new apps. I'll get around to it.

    EDIT: I played for a minute and thought Hello Mario. The blocks are the same and the graphics are the same. It looks pretty good though.

    I just played through the first 3 levels too. Nicely done. Gameplay is smooth and I'm assuming the difficulty will ratchet up as you play more levels. I actually like how the ball sort of floats a little bit. Not everygame has to have realistic physics. Aren't I supposed to have fun too?

    ok so I've played about 7 boards and I definitely think Mario Bros. when I play this...it has alot of the same fun elements and same look...boucing on heads of enemies to get rid of them, as well as the blocks,mushrooms, cannons etc...it's a side scrolling type of game..I enjoyed the game and it definitely gets harder as you progress. It's fun to float along and the longer you hold down the screen the higher you float...I love the 2d/3d look of the levels and vibrant colors. The gameplay and movement is spot on and you can get power ups such as high jump and invincible (I've only played 7 boards) however, I do wish the backgrounds would have changed with every board though but all in all a very polished looking and fun game and if you like this sort of game you'll like Bounce On.
