    Haven't tried it myself yet, but it's for free, so I'll be sure to try it out later on tonight...

    I just played the first 17 levels and can confirm that fun was had.
    Very simple control scheme: when you touch the screen, any magnetic pads within range will effect the movement of the ball in the direction indicated by their arrows. Navigate the ball to the finish. That's it, but it's pretty fun.

    Very nice for a freebie.

    Cool. I've got 2.2.1 so I'll give it a try and report back. Looks like a good quality game for free!

    That sucks. I've been avoiding that update so it doesn't screw up my phone like it did so many people.

    This looks like a good game though. I can always revert back to 2.2, I guess.

    Amazing

    I love this game it's freaking perfect. It's pretty challenging and it has a develepor time that makes u keep wonting to beat it. I've played for almost a hour and still haven't beat it so it's pretty long

    If i was on 2.2.1 i wuld try it...
    Can someone tell me if, when you update, it saves all your apps, music,...
    (I mean: After the restore, are the apps and the music still on the iPod?)
    I am on 2.2 (If that helps)

    The developer should put the above statement on their game's App Store page.

    I dunno why I laughed at it...it was so...proper. Great review. I'm not kidding. This, IMHO, is how all reviews should be.

    "Was it fun"

    "I can confirm it was, yes"

    Yeah, all your stuff stays on it :)
     
  10. haven't played it yet but the concept reminds me of toy bot diaries, especially since they say that there's going to be a 2nd and 3rd installation


    i can't wait to bust this out

    Sounds good--I'm downloading now. I'm a sucker for new (and simple) interaction styles.

    (Why does the App Store show only 3 stars, when the text below says "4+ stars" and all 3 reviews are 5 stars?)

    I like it--the graphics are a little retro and the UI is odd (two buttons for Replay Level?) but it passes the "fun" test!

    The play mechanism is fun, and I like the simple "1 or 2 star" scoring mechanism. Earning that second star will add replay value.

    4+ is the age rating, not the star rating, plus users can submit ratings without leaving reviews.

    True. That explains it. It must be getting a lot of low reviews without comments? I guess that makes sense--people who delete an app don't like it, and the offer to review when you delete has no place to include comments.

    (Yet another reason why rate-on-delete is silly.)
