It amazing how much better the game actually looks. The music pretty in tune to what you are doing. The menus are really slick showing the friends list leaderboard right in the game mode screen. I'm surprised at how much better it is, and 10 dollars I think is worth it, there is quite a bit of stuff in the game.
I wasn't sure how they could improve on the look of the game to make it look even better than the original, but I was wrong, the game looks so much prettier than the original. I like the variety offered by the new modes, I only wish there was some kind of online element to the game.
"Is it worth it though? I played the trial, got my highest score of 4,335,000 and was astounded by how easier this one is when compared to the original.Its no easier, but the score goes up much quicker because multipliers work differently. Each time you collect a green orb your multiplier goes up 1 and each enemy spits out sometimes several green orbs. So its on a whole different playing field when it comes to the score, but the actual game play is just as challenging, if not more.
