I'm going to keep this review short in order to not waste anyone's time. I would have passed reviewing this app if I didn't find a strong urge in myself to prevent people from wasting their hard-earned 99 cents (yes, it's that bad).

First of all, pictures - I try to fill my reviews with as many pictures as possible but I had a hard time coming up with more than three because it would be the same thing on each picture. This game consists of shooting colored balls ("antidotes") at other colored balls in order to cause them to blow up. If the balls get behind your ship, the evil, cow-looking creature gets some life taken off of its health bar. That's it, I've given a complete description of the game. The story mode offers the same thing every level, except for the addition of more and more colors (I think it's one more per level, but it may be two). The challenge mode is just an endless bore of shooting balls at other colored balls, FOREVER or until you lose (which is highly unlikely).

The graphics are slightly pleasing, which is why I allowed myself to give that part of the game three stars. As for controls, you pull back the ship and let go - it fires the ball. The ball rarely ever seems to go where you want it (according to simple angles, if I pull exactly southwest, the ball should go exactly northeast - not here...) - one star was generous for controls.

I forced myself to play this game for a least a half hour in order to give it a fair review and spare our readers the pain of playing it themselves. Don't let my half hour go to waste, don't buy this game.
