Review of LunarTilt v0.9 by Pocketmax

PocketMax has just released a version 0.9 beta of their accelerometer-based game LunarTilt for the HTC Touch Diamond. New addition are 4 skill levels, a landing pad and easier installation.

As promised, installation was simply a matter of copying the cab to my Diamond and executing it. The video below gives an idea of the game play.

As watchers of the video would appreciate, controls are overly sensitive, the angle (nearly flat) needed to play is inconvenient, and the game much too difficult, even on the easy level. Further criticisms are that the game starts as soon as the application is started, there is not much reward for actually landing the lander (a ticker tape parade would be appreciated actually) and the application does not place its shortcut in the Games folder, but rather in the general folder.

On the positive side, the sound of the explosion is quite good, and the graphics also look pretty polished.

In conclusion, while PocketMax believes the game is nearing release, I would suggest a lot more work is needed.
