    This has come a long way since I first saw it, and I remember being none too positive about it at the time.

    By the look of it, you've gotten everything right now - looks very nice and I hope it makes you a pile.

    Ditto to the comments. Very tasty artwork Chris.
    Looks far more "finished/polished" this iteration.
    The world maps & mini games make a huge difference - makes it look/feel much like a complete package.
    Really nice work.

    (Curious to see how well this one does for you guys. iPhone just seems like such a tough nut to crack. Any possibility of this getting ported over to other platforms?)

    thanks, guys... yes... let's keep the fingers crossed... so far iphone has not been to good... but hey... things might change...

    @dadio - we are working on an xbox conversion of the game... and depending on sales on the iphone an ipad version will follow soon... I would like to see it go Wii and PSP... but it will depend on the iphone success in order to fund it...

    Congrats on the release, will give this a go later :)

    Have you considered adding additional levels/mini-games through In App purchases?

    Congrats mate looking awesome

    How much did it take to develop such a game? I`m a die hard for those kind of games ;)

    All involves thinking like Crayon physics type of stuff is awesome.
