A new twist on classic boardwalk games. Ramp Champ will delight and challenge players young and old. Four levels, or "ramps," are included by default: Clown Town, Breakwater Bay, Icon Garden & Space Swarm. Flick your finger to roll balls down each of the themed ramps to earn virtual tickets which can be redeemed for prizes and digital loot. Ramp Champ is great for players wanting to play for 5 minutes collecting tickets or several hours working to solve the unique puzzles hidden inside each level. When you've completed the default ramps, more adventures await you via Ramp Champ's in-app purchase option. Each add-on pack offers new challenges, original music and collectible knickknacks.

Perhaps Change Is Not Always Good
Ramp Champ, in its former iteration, was one of my absolute favorite games. The artwork was beautiful, the achievements were fun, and most of all, the gameplay was smooth!
Since it’s been taken over by this new company, though, it seems the mechanics, or physics, of the gameplay have changed, and all of a sudden, something that was so dear to me has become very foreign and strange. I feel like I have no longer have control over the ball’s speed or direction like I used to, meaning that most of the time, I’m just sort of flicking and hoping it goes where it’s supposed to. Even worse, sometimes when the ball hits the target DIRECTLY, it doesn’t register as a hit, meaning I lose out on tons of points. Also, many times, the game doesn’t even register my finger, which means that I’m swiping and swiping with no action.
I used to really love this game, and seeing and hearing the sights and sounds again of this game - now in Retina! - is great. But given the new physics of the game, it’s pretty disappointing. I really hope they get the game engine back from the Iconfactory, or do something fix this game. Until then, it’s back to two stars. :(
Tons o' Fun now v1.2
Update: just upgraded to the new version which adds retina 4" support!!! It looks awesome! Great job to the development team! This game is still one of a kind in the App Store so keep it up and produce new tables!
How about support for iCloud to backup scores, prizes, etc...?
Just as Megamander said, definitely for those who love the classic ramp games. Obviously those who gave low ratings are not fans of the real game. This game adds the realistic experience along with the classic look and feel which is right up my alley. The graphics are amazing and the simulation mimics the real ramps at best. I like the fact the game is not easy to "win" as this is attributed to its realism. If it was easy to accomplish the goals, we would just see a large number of low ratings because it was too "easy to win" and that they would just stop playing it. I only wish for the following:
1) multiplayer profiles. Sometimes I would like my kids to play so they can keep track of their own score.
2) some way to reset your score/prizes
Other than that I look forward to playing more and downloading more add-ons. Enjoy!
Once beautiful and fun, now ruined.
The new update is terrible!! The ball is now almost impossible to aim, has a totally unrealistic feel, and is no fun to play anymore! My purchases were restored, but not my trophies or loot! It looks nice, but the physics are terrible. Polar opposite experience from my first review of the original version below. This app has been gutted, and so am I.
Previous version: This app is so addictive, and also fun to look at. The detailed art work, the challenging play with the promise of tricks to discover within each level, as well as the loot and trophy features make this a keeper on my iPhone. The ball feels almost real as it is launched toards the targets.
