10 word review: Walks the thin line between frustration and fun. Very addictive.

The good news: Polished, pretty, good control method, loads of levels, no IAPs.

The bad news: Occasionally frustrating. Gold levels are for masochistic nutters.

Arcadelife verdict: Bought it, liked it. Due to other commitments, I don’t have time to say much more. It’s a fun game, very slick. You should get it.
