An excellent app that could be so much better
This is one of my go-to games on my phone, as it's excellent gameplay, unique music, and addictive nature really makes it a long-time favorite. However, I feel like there's room for more levels. The lack of any real replay value once you beat all of the levels is a bit disappointing, but besides that, an excellent app that is great, but could be so much better. 8/10
Needs iCloud Save!
Great game, so much fun and extremely challenging. Just needs cloud save so our progress isn't for nothing. If there are no more levels to be added in the future then an update to save our progress in the cloud is the least to add. That would be really helpful and make this perfect. Thanks!
Not worth it
While this game may seem cool at first, that's really all it has going for it. As you sink your teeth into the later levels, it relies on tactics to make the game more difficult that end up being very frustrating instead of fun. For example, one of the levels changes the texture of the platforms so you can barley differentiate one from the other, that being the main difficult part of the level.
