3/5 stars

Great, but flawed...

While this game is incredibly faithful to the original (which is one of the most clever games out there), this version is flawed by painfully slow game play at the higher levels, such as 11-5 and 12-5. As more "bugs" are loaded on the screen, the response time slows down and the game becomes unresponsive. It can take 2 or 3 taps to fire a shot. By that time, your target has moved and the shot is worthless. In a game where you're playing against time, this is deadly. It's frustrating, to say the least. Fix this, and it becomes a 5-star game.
Also, showing the E-X-T-R-A letters under Tumble also blocks your line of sight when you're aiming toward the bottom of the screen. This, however, is a minor quibble.
The game is still very enjoyable, but that slow response at the higher levels really needs to be looked at.

4/5 stars

It will keep you busy for hours

I enjoyed playing the game on my PC few years ago. I thought it was easier to defeat than Luxor and Zuma but nonetheless it was still entertaining. When I saw the iPhone version I knew that I have to have it! I love it!
The only complain that I have is that the E-X-T-R-A display under the tumblebug blocks my sight and I lose precious moments trying to figure out what color the ball is. I don't think that it will be a big loss of you remove it completely or place it somewhere else.
Change this and I will give the game 5 stars.

Love it, but....

The game display covers up part of the bugs. Unable to see entire picture while shooting. Too big for the screen. Please fix.
