    But, every time you start the game you have to start at level 1, right?

    99 cents doesn't equal free!

    It did a couple days ago when I posted that.

    With no save feature, it's probably not worth a dollar. Great free game though.:p

    It uses a strange control them, where you have to tap the block next to your figure in the direction where you wanna go. This seems even worse than the control method of Mouse House. There you can touch anywhere relative to your mouse, here you have to touch the block next to you. Don't touch a block three blocks away in the same direction - this won't work... :(

    Every dev should use a control scheme like in Mouse About or Bomberman, when creating such a puzzler.

    Needs save feature

    I tried both methods of control. The tilt works well and I found it less frustrating than the tap method.

    Main problem is lack of save feature. It definately needs a save feature. I got as far as level 12 but was then interupted. By that stage I had already been interupted a few times and couldn't be bothered playing through all those levels yet again.

    Update - now saves

    I saw in appshopper.com that Space Trap has been updated. The game now saves the last level you were up to. If you exit the game the next time you start the game you select "Load" and the last level you were on loads. I've tested it and it loads to the start of the level you were up to, not exactly where you were in the "maze" for that level. A definate improvement that makes the game much more playable for me.
