I dare you... revised
I dare you to put level 9 in the demo and see how many games you sell... It is ridiculous. To suddenly make the game about precision controls when it's on an iPhone is just a poor design choice. Sorry. There is other ways to make it challenging which was done pretty well in the first 8 levels. 9 kills it for me. 1star. Also add level 14 to this... Holy f! Are you kidding!? Impossible unless you get lucky. Zero stars if I could.
The above was corrected and now deserves 5 stars. A developer who listens! It now has replay value!!!
This is a great app and now one of my favorite games on my ipod... One suggestion that would make this game even better is a customizable arrow guide. What i mean is that you can make the arrows as big as you want or small as you want and be able to move them to whichever part of the screen is most comfortable for you...and maybe having the option of not seperating the d-pad,,but other than that great app i love it
Rick Rocketson Pro
First, you will see ads that this costs only .99, then others at $1.99. The actual cost is $2.99, so use your judgement as to whether this game is worth the developer-inflated price. I did, under the promise that there were more online levels available.
These online levels, while retrievable, are unplayable, causing the game to crash every time. Hence, the game's value drops considerably, imho. So, what to do to see if you can get them going? Well, there is NO tech support, again, NO tech support, as the developer obviously does not care about helping you out. Repeated queries will go unanswered. The unmonitored forum is also pretty dead end, so..
