3.0 out of 5 stars great game, annoying problem December 27, 2012
By Siobhan
Verified Purchase
i was really enjoying this game until i got to chapt 2 when it stopped orienting correctly. i'm not having this issue with any other apps. wi tried uninstalling & reinstalling and the game is still "upside down". : (

i agree with the description of this game as a cross between world of goo and cut the rope. its a very relaxing visually and aurally pleasing game to play. i would love to continue playing if the developers could resolve my issue. then i would update my review to 5 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only one downside December 29, 2012
By Airmid
Verified Purchase
**Edit 3/21/2013 - I've changed this review from 4 to 5 stars since the screen issues have been fixed on my Kindle Fire HD and hopefully work right for all Kindle owners. I still love the game and the fact it uses very simple mechanics to make some challenging physics based puzzles.

There is also a lot of replay. The different worlds unlock based not on all the completed levels but by the number of lights you've collected up to that time. Which does free you up to skip a level that you're having problems with at the time and still be able to progress.

The other thing I'd like to add after almost finishing the game is that it is very relaxing. There are no timers, when you accidentally roll or fling (ack) Petite off the world there's only a small sound and he respawns instantly. There are no penalties for death and you are free to return to any level to finish getting all the lights at your leisure. Everything is seamless and it's nice to have a game that's challenging but not full of high intensity flashing lights screaming 'Gogogogogo, oops you failed!"

And now back to your original review**

I have zero clue how to describe this game beyond beautiful, peaceful, challenging and fun.

The downside? For kindle fire HD owners it orientates wrong in landscape view. I just hold the kindle in portrait and play. While slightly annoying I personally don't find it game breaking. This is the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars and I hope the problem is fixed soon.

I wanted to add to make sure there is no confusion - I hold the Kindle upright but the game displays in landscape. You're basically playing it sideways and for this kind of game it is not horrible and definitely still playable and enjoyable. I did send in a report to Amazon since the app is not operating the way it should and I really do hope that it has a fix soon for us since it is an awesome game. Even sideways. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy game December 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Very whimsical and absorbing game. Perfectly relaxing music that blends well with the unique animation. Realistic physics that compliment the sometimes challenging stages. A really fun and beautiful game and it costs as much as one McDouble cheeseburger that would likely contain onions despite multiple adamant requests for an onionless burger. In summation, avoid the frustrations and disposability of a fast food burger and buy this game for the same price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Update Fixed Orientation Issues! January 17, 2013
By Sam
Verified Purchase
(If your a Kindle Fire HD owner you can buy this game because a recent update fixed the upside-down orientation issue with the fire HD.)

This is my absolute favorite game on my kindle right now. The game's graphics are beautiful and smooth. The music is just amazing and the levels are well designed. There are 5 levels and each level has 20 sub-levels. absolutely amazing game, best 99˘ you'll ever spend.

Music is some of the best I've heard in an appstore game. Levels are quick and a lot of fun. I can't wait to play the rest.

Freaky cool game for the Kindle. Impressed with the graphics and different concept. Unimpressed with unintuitive game play. Maybe I'm too old.
