Excellent game

Bought this game years ago and still play it. Also I tend to pass it to youngsters and challenge them with the levels. It’s really an excellent game and worth every penny.

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

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.
