    Nope...it's basically a block slider puzzle game. If you're not into those games, there's absolutely no changing that, but what you have here is really well put together, with a great soundtrack. I personally don't really care for these kinds of games, but I've been enjoying this quite a bit. I guess it's the optional speed running aspect which has me hooked. Having to douse flames at the same time as moving bits and pieces around, in order to hit an initially impossible 10 second par time is really fun.

    Oh, and I decided to take one for the team and find out how many extra puzzles you get for an extra dollar. Another 25. For $2.99 youre getting 50 handcrafted puzzles. Of course since this is TouchArcade, people will find that a massive reason to complain, but I think it's a fair price.

    EDIT: 125 MB installed, for those who want to know.

    Why this game is not on "Out Now" post?

    The trailer looks great! This might be the best puzzler of the year so far.

    EDIT: Tried to buy and got the message: "The item you tried to buy is no longer available". Pulled?

    Not really sure what happened here. While trying to buy the extra levels, the pop-up would come and go quite a few times. Even though I never actually hit the buy button for them, they unlocked and I assumed I may have hit the purchase button at some point without noticing. After closing the app a few times, I found that I didn't actually buy them and the restore button doesn't do anything. Oh well, at least we know how many extras there are.

    Word of advice: It looks like Pocket Gamer have a review coming out soon and they say you should probably wait for it. Like I said, if you like block sliding puzzles, you'll dig this. If you don't...you won't.

    Was able to buy it in the UK. Had no idea this game was even a thing, never mind that it was coming soon. Now WayForward, let's talk about Mighty Flip Champs...

    The puzzles it comes with take all of 20 minutes to finish. Kinda lighter than I was expecting.

    This game looks great, and done by another team with similar graphics, it might have been okay. But having been done by a team that's put together much better games on a similar platform, I would've hoped for something even better... not a step backwards. But for what it is, it is done well. I'm just not sure if it's worth my time compared to so many other games.

    I really enjoy this game. One of the better puzzle games released in awhile. My only complaint is the length of the game but I enjoyed it enough to rate it high.
