I've been waiting for this to arrive on Android for quite some time. It was my favorite game to kill time with on my iPod Touch. I'm not going to go into a huge shpeal about it... I just wanted to announce that it's here :)

By the way, it looks amazing on a Galaxy S screen (ie Samsung Epic).
There's a free version in the market. I tried it out, and can't say that I think its worth paying $3. It only lets you play one mode, so maybe the others are deeper.

$3 is a little steep... it's the same price they charged on the iOS app store. Back when this game first game out, $3 was normal. Should probably be a little cheaper now... but i like it enough to support the developer.

The full version has 3 modes. My favorite is supernova, which allows you to target exactly where you're aiming. It takes 5 hits to destroy a "bubble" and when you do, it sends out an explosion the side of the bubble. Any other bubbles it hits, it takes 1 off of them. This allows you to perform combos which can get you a LOT of points. It is definitely the mode with the most depth. The other 2 don't really have any options other than "try not to die." Supernova's combo system makes for some really cool strategies.
