TOP 500 REVIEWERon December 30, 2012
I stopped at the end of level 7, and I'll tell you why in a moment. In a nutshell, though, the game has promise and can be made into a decent app with some critical attention by the developer.

The Good:
Great physics engine and beautifully constructed levels using a gorgeous 3D engine with superb lighting effects and awesome textures.

The Bad:
# The aiming is difficult and non-intuitive, partly because the slingshot's placement on the screen isn't put where I'd expect it.
# Ironically, despite using a sophisticated 3D engine, there is a lack of distance perspective in each of the levels, which means that the only way to determine the distance from the slingshot to the target is rough guesstimation.
# Nice sound, but the inclusion of an ambient music track really would have put this app within reach of being considered a good quality, professional app. It is a simple thing to do, and would greatly enhance the experience.

The Really Bad:
I told you above that I stopped playing it after level 7, which is where the troubling network permission reared its ugly head. As soon was the level was finished, a garish full screen ad to "download a free game" assaults the user. There is just one button: a large green "Okay" button that, when pressed, abruptly dumps you out of the game and into the Google App Play store to the screen of some strange game.
The permissions are fairly bad, and here is a good example of why you should question a game's desire for internet access.

In all, it is worth a few download, but the developer has his work cut out for him. It is a beautiful game marred by user interface issues, game play problems, and some customer abuse, all of which should be easily fixed with some diligent work.

The idea is nice, it may get boring after a while. I only played three levels as it was frustrating. It is hard to place your slingshot, hard to aim up and down, hard to judge distance, and pulling back is too sensitive so hard to get it just right. Not to mention you have to get 100% breakage before you can go to the next level. I broke everything but didn't get 100% because part of a glass was left. You only get about five shots to try for what may be five targets, remember I only went to level 3. So too hard too fast. Just not fun. Also the game is slow in calculating your damage, so you have to wait for that.

Just not ready for prime time. Needs a lot more tweaking.

As others said, the aiming in this game is awful. The slingshot appears randomly when you put your finger on the screen. Never know where the ball is going to go. The graphics are pretty subpar, especially for a game they're charging $1.99 normally for. Skip this.

I know its not relevant to app performance but if your going to make money in the android ecosystem you should take the time to make new pics with something other than an Apple product. What that says to us is this " I made this app for iOS and now ported it over to your crappy android OS and its not worth the time to make new pics. They won't notice!"

We are not second class to apple and we are noticing.

Ok 3d graphics, but the slingshot placement is variable, so I couldn't determine the angle or distance to the target. I couldn't get the slingshot to fire the same way twice even when it seems it was placed in the same location as the prior shot. Very frustrating game.

once i figured out aiming this was a decent game for mindless fun. the trick is to try and knock off 2 things with a single stone any time you can.

I don't know what all the fuss over shoddy controls is about because I didn't have a problem at all. Aiming is quite simple. it doesn't need directions because you just break stuff with a sling shot, end of story. Good time waster.

I don't care for a couple of the permissions but that's ok, I can turn my WiFi off. I only give it 4 stars due to the permissions that I'm not convinced are absolutely necessary to enjoy the game.

The 3d is just a gimmick and makes the game hard to play. They probably would be better off going 2d and as a side scroller to destroy stuff like angry birds. The 3d just gets in the way of the gameplay.

Might be better if they had a fixed point for the launcher rather then having you guess where you need to set the launcher and then guessing the angle to hit the target.

This is as challenging and enjoyable as angry birds. I like it best of the 2 games. I recommend this game for anyone who has enjoyed angry birds. Fun for all ages!
