    I tried their other $2.99 game (Mystery Block) and, while it wasn't horrible, it was not worth the price at all. That, and their support page is in japanese so I have no clue how to contact them >.>

    Point and case, I will pass on this also.

    I was considering this until I saw that purple monkey thing. It just gives me the creeps :) This does actually look kind of amusing, but the price makes it a no-go until I can try a lite version first.

    The only 8 levels is putting me off this for the price, especially relative to some other recent releases that offer much more.

    It's now only $0.99, so I TOFTT.
    It's basically a wizard themed shmup only the wizard moves pretty slowly. Also you die if you move off screen. Definitely not worth it, I'd avoid it.

    Thought so when I saw it. Graphics could use some work, too. Meh...

    I really wish there was another control method. That's the biggest turn off since all you use is a d-pad with super small buttons. Maybe if it had a swiping method and tap to fire it could have been a lot more enjoyable. Especially for a game that has obstacles like rocks and trees pulling you back into a game over because you can't move properly.

    That's too bad. For 99 cents I would have picked it up, but it sounds like the controls break the game in this case.

    Yeah they're pretty frustrating because of their size. Plus it's a bit uncomfortable for me to move and shoot with one hand. If they were spread out a bit more on the bottom then it would be okay.
