Customer Reviews

Ads are gone, great customer service

I loved this game on my nexus 7 and wanted to buy it again for ios. Reading the reviews I was saddened to hear they had added ads to a paid app. I emailed Chillingo to ask why they did this and received a response saying they had removed this feature that advertised their other games. I purchased immediately.

This game is beautiful. It's fun, challenging and has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard. I especially love the ability to skip any level I just can't seem to beat. There are in-app purchases but these are unnecessary to buy. You can unlock every level the old fashioned way.

Awesome game, but now has ads

When I saw pictures of this game, I was reminded of world of goo which is one of my favorite indie games. After playing this game for a few hours I can say it does share some gameplay with world of goo, but is a fine game in its own right.

The game looks beautiful on a retina enabled iPad and the game has beautiful music.

Now for the bad part... One of the later updates added ads for other games to the main menu, pause screen, and level selection screen. Normally I am not too bothered by ads, but this is a paid app, and it really breaks the mood the rest of the game creates.

Similar gameplay but frustrating controls

This title is similar to CTR (my favorite!) but I found the controls too frustrating to continue past the first "world" before I deleted the app. With this developer's other titles, the controls are very straightforward and easy to understand & implement. For some reason I just had trouble getting the hang of manipulating the blob-earth...sometimes I would move it and it would do what I wanted, other times I would do the same action and it wouldn't budge, or move the blob in a different, unintended way. Looking forward to other titles from this developer, though! :)
