Used to be great
I've played this game on every platform since its release. The game itself, the design, the game play, the music, graphics and puzzles are great! However, I have found that this port to iOS does NOT do the game justice. I have been experiencing a bug where goo balls suddenly become un-selectable during game play. This usually happens into game play and quickly becomes extremely frustrating when forced to relaunch the level/game in order to continue. In fact, restarting the level/game doesn't always solve the issue, and I'm often left not only unable to complete a level, but completely unwilling to continue when faced with this issue. The game itself deserves 5 stars, but it's current functionality on iOS deserves far less as it is currently unplayable for me.
Not that impressive
I play a lot of casual games and this one was not that great. It did not live up to all the hype I've read in the reviews IMO. I didn't care to finish it as it became increasingly less intuitive and difficult beyond reason. It came to the point where I could not figure out a level without 'cheating' and finding a walk through video. I consider myself a pretty competent game enthusiast but this was just too frustrating. And one of the songs was just so depressing I had to turn down the volume completely (no sound off option in settings). It was like a funeral dirge that made me want to jump off of a bridge. Deleted this app.
Probably the best iOS game ever.
I mean that sincerely. I read a review where the person said "not that impressed". That's insane. It's incredibly unique and fun. Graphics are amazing, everything about this is amazing.
I am often annoyed with overhyped games. This one deserves all the attention it receives.
I wish this developer would come out with more games. I actually am writing this review a year after I finished the game. I came back to check out any new games by the makers.
