    Has anyone taken the plunge with this one yet? Is it worth it? It received some airtime on TouchArcade a few days ago, and looked interesting ...

    playing it now. I really liking it.

    It's hard to tell how much gameplay is in it. But the game itself is very fun.

    It's a platform physics puzzler. you have a grappling hook and magnetic shoes. You use those to get past obstacles/ puzzles.

    TA Review?

    Thanks Arn. Will TouchArcade be running a full-blown review on this one?

    Thanks Again

    Thanks for posting a review so quickly, Arn. Trying the game now. Couldn't agree with you more -- it's very, very polished.

    I've made it a fair way through, but not really being careful about picking up all the data pads, but am really stuck now somewhere in level 3.

    Thanks for the review. I remember seeing a preview of it on Toucharcade.

    That game looks awesome, I love platform physics puzzlers.

    There goes another $3.99...... :D:cool:

    This looks like a great addition to the appstore, thanks for the quick review Arn. If anyone does finish this "episode" could they post their game length estimate? 4 Levels sounds like it could be really small or long depending on the game.

    Much appreciated.

    I brought it when a friend recommended it this morning. Seems like a darn long 4 levels to me (1+ hr and still at lvl3...) and its only 3.99. I'm really enjoying it. I think even after i complete it, i probably will play it again since i'm missing quite a lot of these collectible chips in the levels i'd cleared... You need to collect all the chips to see all the comic...

    I read at QB that this is episodic. So entry 1 means episode 1 i guess. Not sure how many episodes there will be, but if the subsequent episodes are 3.99 with this quality, i'll buy them all!

    So I've played this game during lunch today and a little after dinner tonight.

    Very cool game- So far it's not extremely hard, but it's challenging enough to keep me playing. I can see that it's getting harder as I play. And it's fun :)

    I most definitely recommend it. :D

    Its a little short for the price.

    I admit it is a well polished title but it is relatively short. There are really only 3 levels plus one boss level. After that you're done. It is fun though and I look forward to the next episodes. Hopefully they will bundle all them together for a more reasonable price.

    Fantastic game, but way too short. I feel a bit ripped-off, as there's little replay value.

    Hoping "Entry 2" will be either a free upgrade, or discounted for past purchasers...
