Customer Reviews

Okay its been a while now...

This game deserves a 5 out of 5, and probably one of the best games of 2013. But this game has not received a real update yet, and there are no new tracks. Starts to be a bit concerning after I have already paid two dollars for this. I really hope a big update is coming soon or I will just keep bringing the stars down
UPDATE: It has almost been another month now, and still no sign of an update. Its really frustrating because a $2 dollar game should not have only 6 runs. I mean cmon. PLEASE, release a second part with at least another 4 runs. Or at least give us a sign that an update is coming. 3/5 for now, bummer is this deserves a 5/5 :/
SECOND UPDATE: it's march 9th and still nothing. Not a single sign of an update.

Man, I love this game.

It's just so mindless! That's a compliment. I can just occupy my hands with it and let my mind wander. I've played the last level over 2500 times, it's really nice. The controls work great and when it comes down to it the game never ends, so long as you don't focus on just getting 100% on everything, but just keep going higher. I'm only on about 300% on the last level, and I intend to do much better. I don't honestly see any way to improve the game.

Great game but...

Could you create a new conrol option? Like press in the middle of the screen to jump straight? Because i dont process it fast enough, in the later maps, to press both sides to go i always hit one side when there are no plancks to land on. Please and thank you(: really fantastic game! I recommend it to anyone who doesn't know if they want to buy it or not.
