Good but not too hard

I love the game. Really smooths, really creative, really fun. I absolutely love it. But the reason I gave it 4 stars was because its not too hard and there is not enough levels. I have already beat it 10 times and I would like more levels. I would also like to recommend to be able to unlock new characters or what ever u call them.

Incomprehensibly bad on the Apple TV

due to the unmitigated awfulness of the Apple TV remote. I’ve played games all my life, and never could I remember, nay conceive of, something so pointlessly frustrating. I’m no idiot, and yet I played for 5 minutes, couldn’t get past even the 2nd “L” in HELLO, and my only reaction is “$#%$ this $#*!”
And I haven’t yet played it on my phone, but other people like it, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and give this 3 stars even though I have never had such a preposterously bad experience playing a video game ever. (Could E.T. for the Atari 2600 have been this bad? It could not have been.)
Ok, I just played it on my phone. This controls are marginally better*, but I still hate it. I just totally hate it. But again, I don’t want to sandbag 1* review this one, because maybe I just don’t “get” it, and it seems like a fine programming effort and all, and other reviewers seem to “get” it. But man, I’d rather be cleaning the sink that playing this game (quite literally). At least that doesn’t make we want to throw things.

*Note: Why does the Apple TV version have a “boost” button/function (which just as might well be a “siri” function for the amount to times you’ll accidentally press that button - shame Siri couldn’t answer my question “Siri, what the $*^@ is wrong with this game?”), but the iPhone version does *not*? Is it not supposed to be the same game?

Great on iPhone, better on iPad, terrible on Apple TV

It's a simple game to figure out but it is devilishly tricky. Everything feels smooth and well executed, except on the Apple TV. On there it feels like a crappy port. I hope it gets better on there!

I'd also like to see more levels for it.
