    I agree it does look fun, but with the amount of apps now that are 79cent, and delivering way more content and gameplay, is it really worth it?

    That looks great fun!

    Anything with apes in it gets my thumbs up. One thing you might want to watch for is that when you get 5 hits it displays "5hit"... now I'm surprised you got through Apple approval with that ;-)

    It's called retro.

    I don't see anything awful with it at all. It doesn't try to be what it isn't, and that's a big plus.

    Even for retro it looks really terrible. And watching it in motion makes it look like a clumsy mess. There isn't even any content at all. You really expect people to buy this?

    Interesting concept. This game (which I think it's an original idea), due its ingenuous gameplay, would fit very well in a real arcade.

    It looks something good to pick up and play.

    It'd be nice to see an online high score to see who's crushing more skeletons!

    I might buy it because I think my kids will like it too. Might? I mean bought. Here are my first impressions:

    PROS

    - Atari 2600 video game feel
    - Tilt is a bit sensitive but playable
    - Good animations
    - Good sounds

    CONS

    - Only one landscape orientation (volume down)
    - It can't resume
    - It does not display remaining lives
    - If you lose you have to start from stage 01 (at least a hard mode to start from e.g. level 5 or more)
    - Only one game mode and one difficulty level
    - No touch control alternative
    - No options
    - No online high score
    - No background music

    All in all I like the game and its Atari feeling.

    I most generally agree with arta, but I have to disagree here. I find the game simple, fun and even challenging. You have summed up my thoughts Sz (LOL)

    Very "arcade" feel and spot on retro arcade sounds. Tilt and touch controls work flawlessly. Like I said it is simple. But you are responsible to tilt the girl and lure the skeletons under the robot fists and "pull" them down, in later levels the girls dog shows up, and he has a mind of his own so you have to avoid smashing him as well. Fun, period. It does what it promises.

    The only 2 things,that are superficial, that the game could benefit from are a few varied backgrounds, and as Carlos says, onlyne leaderboard.

    Nice game to the developer

    I think the same as Arta. The gameplay is Very simple. I donĀ“t understand a game like this. For kids? Then kids are that silly this days?
    I like simple arcade games like Up there or Joyride but that ones are fun. But at last this is only my opinion and I see others like this one

    I think it looks quite fun for a quick pick up and play... depending on the price of course.

    I actually love the look and the game mechanics, some of the feature suggestions sound pretty basic (and necessary) for gameplay and replay value so I'm on the fence right now. If the developer can address them I'll probably pick it up.

    Nice unique idea though!
