    Bought! Its 183mb, 473 once installed, universal, has screen rotation, can turn off sounds and or music.
    No GameCenter: it has achievements but inside the app only, not any social integration at all
    IAP: There is a Survival chapter for another dollar
    Had to restart my iPhone before being able to play... iOS6 NOT jailbroken

    And then it begin... first a video, then the first level, and its awesome... its very polished, you tap anyhere to make a tentacle move to the desired location to stick to, then the other legs, and its really fluid and fast to move actually, at the end of each level you are awarded a star for each objective completed (Collect all, dont die and no harm taken, speed or others), music and sounds are nice, has a techno beat? (not really an auditive person), looks like retina resolution, there are video scenes, graphics are gorgeous on a iPhone 4, it loads pretty fast too...

    This game is amazing

    agree, this took me by surprise, extremly polished and well done.
    for one dollar..its a sure thing.
    on vita/dedicted gaming consol this would cost at least 7 dollar.

    based on the graphics and gameplay so far, i think a 3gs could run it, but not well.

    So are their IAPs? I read the original had 40 levels but then additional levels were released as DLC as a separate purchase.

    Opps...sorry missed this...

    Just out of curiousity, how many levels/chapters are in the initial game?

    Still surprised at Microsoft doing iOS game releases, but it definitely looks like the one game I'll be buying for sure tonight. :)

    Well, they have non-game apps (OneNote, Bing, etc). Apple and Microsoft aren't hostile entities, after all, Microsoft makes Office for te Mac, and they aren't hostile to the idea of Bootcamp (which allows a Mac to run Windows) I don't think.

    I just wish it was easier to run OSX, in whatever flavor, on a PC. And it would be nice to have a halfway decent iTunes client.

    I would. WP8 is not WP7 and the older model has been ignored by MS for months. They didn't get any traction and set it adrift.
     
  18. No fing way!!! Wow! Saw the Zaxxon thread and was so disappointed, now this one looks like it has potential! I used to be Mr. Microsoft, so actually I am glad they have Microsoft on Apple. Even though I'm sure some Apple fanboys will sneer at it.

    Gotta do some quick research, and break my non early adopter oath. This game actually makes me excited, give us some feedback guys and gals!

    Loving this game so far. It's cool how yow you control the movement of the creatures legs with each touch, it feels very new but very familiar at the same time. Finally a game to be excited about this week, and it feels like a steal for a buck

    Played the first few levels, it runs lightning fast on the iPhone5.
    Fantastic gameplay and controls = a much welcome addition to my phone.
