    Quite surprised no-one has created a thread for this yet, especially seeing as its one of the highest rated games for the Vita!

    It controls perfectly, graphically its gorgeous and its just loads of fun!.

    Considering its only 5 too, this stands alongside Motorstorm RC for me as a great game at a great price - hopefully more people will start downloading it!

    I've been tempted, too much other stuff to play at the moment. Strange to see Ubisoft with the two highest rated games. Rayman is brilliant though.

    If there's no PS1 games next couple of weeks I'll pick it up.

    Hmm never heard of it, has it been released in Europe?

    Looks interesting, a bit like World of Goo and some other games I've seen on mobile devices.

    It's available to buy on PSN in Europe. Sony kinda shot themselves in the foot with the memory sticks. I like to use the PSP/now Vita as a media player, so haven't gotten that much downloadable material. I got the the 16gig one, if there was a 32 available I would have bought that one and ended up buying a lot more online.

    It's really good fun, I bought it at launch but only got round to trying it last night.

    It's certainly got a charm to it.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Althought I haven't played a lot of the game (damn you Motorstorm), it is a fun game and at the price of just over 5 I cannot fault it.

    I am sure later levels will pose more of a challenge too.

    FLOPS! RAM!

    Grr I still can't install this.

    Rang up Customer Support and I was asked to call up my network provider to open up a port for it as well.

    Still nothing.

    Im quite surprised that, out of all the Metacritic reviews, its the one by IGN that is probably the most accurate IMO.

    I think this is a great little game, absolute steal for the price. Love the bonus tilt-table levels.
  • Deleted user 1 March 2012 12:00:27
    It really is an awesome game. I hammered through it shortly after buying it and loved every minute.

    What's its file size? Don't have a lot of free space on me memory stick, but tempted to pick it up anyway.

    It's good but I'm not quite seeing why this game has a metacritic average of 96 or whatever it is.

    Just downloading it now.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I did earlier, lovely little game. Nice touches like the marks on the edge of the screen to give it an antique tv look really made me smile :-)

    Reading the positive comments, I think I'll give this a try - looking for something else to play, seeing as WipEout 2048 is doing my head in. :)

    Yay! I got it and played it on the train to work this morning. I'm only three levels in, but its' such a lovely, charming wee game. Really nicely paced so far, too - really liking the game mechanics.

    If I had one complaint it's that I can't move the camera around as I'd like with the right analogue stick. Fallen to my death a couple of times because I had no idea what was below me.

    Still - I can't wait to play more of it and I think my daughter will love it, too. Thanks for the recommendation, guys! :)

    I bought and finished this last weekend. It's short but very fun with great music and humour. I'd recommend it to any vita owner. I don't normally replay games but I'll probably go back to it for more trophies eventually.

    I just completed this. Really good fun and am sure i'll go back to it. For the price it's great.

    Its not a bad game but its not excellent, especially the levels where you have to tilt which are just annoying. Worth a fiver though

    Whys that? Does it not work well or you're not a fan of tilt in general? I admit it... I love motion controls so bought this because I heard it uses some. Haven't tried it yet though

    I enjoyed the tilt levels they never felt forced and because there's only five and they're all short i liked them.

    I only played the first two tilt levels and just skipped the rest - I'm really glad they're not a barrier to progression as find them a bit annoying and an unwelcome change of pace when I want to get on and see the next story mission.

    Treating them as a skippable bonus is quite the smart game design decision, really. :)

    In fact, the game design is so smart that almost every time I've been stuck for a couple of minutes a tip has popped up or it's dawned on me that I've been going about something the wrong way.

    As frustrating as the latter can be, I have to say the smile I have when I suss out a game mechanic or puzzle far outweighs the bits that have stumped me. Sure there are a couple of levels I'd not play again more than once, but more often than not this game is doing something right.

    Okay, I bought this in the current Vita sale. Very good first 4 levels and then I hit the first tilt level. How does this thing work, granted playing it while horizontal in bed may not of been the best way, but I couldn't get past the very first hole.

    Glad this is getting some more love, really enjoyed it once it got going and enjoyed finding all of the blobs and getting golds.
    Would love a sequel or some dlc at some point.
