Amazon Hall of Fame and Top Ten reviewer jjceo says:
Beautiful graphics and good sound but the game is extremely challenging! The graphics and sound are very good and the concept is designed nicely. When you are killed you start again at the point you were killed and you do not have to start over.
Overall this is a fun game but game play is very difficult for me. I wish there was a little more training to get used to the controls and challenges. I like the game but in level two it is already quite difficult for me and if I progress I will have been killed a lot…
I rate this game as a 4 star game for the quality of graphics and the action of the game. I will continue to play the game to see if I can get better at it because I like it. I will delete it if my skill does not get good enough to play deep into the game as it uses a lot of memory space.
Note that this reviewer also states there are multiple levels to the game, but only level 1 is unlocked – this is not because the game is free today, it’s because you must beat the first level to advance to the others.
Polara – get it today, while it’s free!
