I'm not a big fan of the everyone writing reviews thing. I think a game will speak for itself, and the fans will let you know they like it or not by how much they talk about it with friends. So I only write reviews if a game is really good, or conversely, really bad. I'm sad to say, in this instance, it's the later of the two. Don't get me wrong, there are some really good qualities to the game. The graphics are great, and some time went in to prettying it up, no doubt. The problem is, the actual mechanics are lousy. Why would you put out a game where the collision detection is so bad you fall through every rock you run in to? You can't tell me that no one testing this game thought to run into things...well, you can, but I wouldn't believe it. Also, the controls, half the time, the game can't seem to differentiate between a press, a swipe up while jumping, or a swipe up on the ground to boost. The game is a challenge, and I think that's great. There was some good level design, and a decent amount of character development for the type of game it is, but now matter how pretty you make it, it falls apart if the main backbone is broken, and in this case, well, maybe it needs some traction. I'm just glad I came across Galaxy On Fire 2 before I stumbled on this one. Now that was a good game!

They have several great concepts. But when things go bad. They go BAD. Don't expect to hear from them if you submit a ticket. I have emailed them every other day for 3 months and haven't even been granted the courtesy of a reply.
Take a chance. It's up to you. But beware, if you spend money with them on upgrades you are wasting your time and money.
Nice and simple game with a bunch of unlockables. The tricks feel a little unresponsive sometimes but the game is always fun with gorgeous backdrops and easy controls.
