I see why this game is popular, it's fast, responsive and addictive, but somehow I can't seem to get into it.
Maybe I'm bad at it or I just dislike the simple looking graphics, or maybe because the screen scrolling is too fast to accurately control where the ball lands.
I think there are better polished ball platform games around, although the actual gameplay is rather good and compelling, but maybe I'm just a bad player.
