Meh ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's how this game makes me feel. It feels like it could be a very fun game, but never being able to pick up your finger is super obnoxious. No pause. I got to the second boss and was staying far away from him until I saw what he was going to do. Apparently something popped up in the corner under my finger where I couldn't see and killed me. After that I was done.

This game basically takes the limited depth of play of a casual game and mixes it with the inconvenience of a full game. I'm honestly only giving it a second star because of its potential.

Very fun and addicting game! But...

The fact that you cant pause it is kind of annoying and odd, but it gives a weird appeal to it that other games don't have. Also this game is pretty laggy, whenever I move my finger to dodge a rocket or something the diamond just sits there and once the game catches up to itself it says I dropped it. But when this problem doesn't occur it is an freaking awesome game!

Pretty Good So Far

At first this game was very frustrating but the new update fixed a ton, so great job on that, the one thing is always having to hold the diamond, maybe you could have a break at the end of each boss battle? Like you'd have to re-tap the diamond and move it to the center or something I don't know, but it'd be great.
