    With a title like that, I thought this game was in Japanese.

    From that clip, it looks like potentially the most tedious game ever created. I'll give it a try anyway.

    Just beaten the first 2 areas and I have to say that it's a really good game... Not much of a platformer really, it's more like a puzzle game... Anyway it's really nice, try it out!

    Yeah, that's kinda the impression I got from the video. I immediately thought of March of the Minis.

    Looks like this would wear down the 'ol stylus tip in a hurry.

    So does anybody know what blowing into the mic does after a mushroom has "fainted," other than just making them float around?

    I think the tutorial said something about reviving the Boingz by blowing into the mic.

    Anyway, glad I gave this game a try. It is really, really cool. There are some issues with touch detection, and the little dudes often end up in their rolly polly form when I don't mean them to. But the game has a lot of really cool stuff going on based on the fairly simple but innovative idea of using the smaller Boingz. It's a shame this game will likely get overlooked by most.

    Reminds me of Toki Toki and March of the Mini rolled up into one game.

    Yes, but they do nothing but floating thru the air. They don't revive. There must be something tricky to do that maybe. But how?

    I remember the Japanese version being pretty good fun.

    I knew this was coming but still puzzled to why its keeping its Japanese title.
