I like this app a lot... But it lacks follow up things and prequel things, like having something appear and interact with it AND ONLY THEN do we merge it with the explosion or the slaughter. Its a gimmick app that could do much more if it had alternate clips in the same genre so you could make more than a 5 to 10 second video with more going on. Its all hi then bye. Could of been EPIC, rather than just GOOD


Best app of its kind .

This app is brilliant! I have almost all of the scenes and will definitely be purchasing any new ones that are released. Don't waste your cash on any of the similar apps ..this is the one .



I love this app so much but it needs a big update tomorrow! This is the update: Bug fixes and improvements. Buy the effects that are locked, and add new ones! This will be a great update!
