do you still recommend it for us or not? I know initially it looks awesome but as you finished 6-7 stages it becomes freaking hard .... but my question is at that point is it still interesting to play or you just feel like shutting it off?

I would highly recommend it.

At first its a little tougher, but as soon as you get used to the controls, it becomes really fun and is easy.

On a scale of 1-10 I would give it an 11.

It stays interesting to play.

I mean i saw people reporting that it becomes unplayable after 7-8 stages..
Do you feel confident to finish off all the stages .. i guess it has 105 stages or so... and would not it suck if you have to leave the app while playing.. say you get a call. then you have to start again from level 1... ?

Its definitely playable after stages 7 and 8. I know since Ive passed those but yeah...

You just cant move the phone a lot. You have to do very slight movements and slow movements too.

So its not possible to use the screen as in touching it to move the ball?
-Like you "must" be moving the phone in some way, correct:eek:
Yep! You only tilt the phone side-to-side to turn and forward/backward to speed up/slow down. It takes quite a bit to get used to. It is hard but that's a good thing; makes it challenging. :laugh2:

If you've used Labyrinth on a jailbroken iPhone, you probably have a feeling of what it's like. Same kind of concept, same controls.

I was not expecting it to be as difficult as it is. HOWEVER that is a good thing. Usually by now I would have never looked at a cell phone game again. This keeps me coming back.
I'm going the get all the bananas route, and it adds difficulty to the game.
I would def recommend but I would let you know that there is in fact a learning curve.
I think the monkey you choose also effects it, BIG monkey is easier to control because he is slower.

Unless that is all in my head.

I was about to ask the same question. I cant figure out how to resume from a previously played game! Anyone out there know how?

The game saves automatically after you beat the tenth level in "easy" then saves again after the next ten in "Hard." So every ten levels.

I beat Monkey Island's first 10 "Easy" levels then the next 10 "Hard" levels. I also beat the first 9 levels in Smooth Sherbet. The next time i play I will pass the first 10 "easy" levels. Its such a hard game, I got so mad after a while.
