    Big congrats to anyone that finishes it after that last patch. It was hard enough before.
    Just wondering what did they patch and in what way is it now even harder?
    Honestly I didn't even realize this was on the WP until I saw this article. Sounds fun but I am really not a fan of frustratingly difficult games on the phone. So just wondering if someone might elaborate...
    My understand is before they patch there was a trick to pause your phone and when
    you resumed you'd have full health or life or whatever it is. That's gone now, making
    the later levels a SEVERE BITCH (with a huge part due to the game's dodgy
    controls).
    Oh. And dodgy controls? Hmm thinking I'll steer clear then - there's nothing more frustrating than controls that don't work properly. Thanks for the info. I may trial it but if it's as bad as many people say it is then I won't be bothering. I'd rather pay a little more and get a game that actually works the way it should :)
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    I just bought this eariler today because i noticed it was 99 cents. I buy EVERY game that is 99 cents or free. I only buy games over 99 cents if i really must have it which is rare. I can wait for price drop no prob since i have 30 unplayed games on my phone.

    Its Monkeyball, so its a buy at this low price.
    I have all Monkeyball games on Wii and Gamecube, and those is awesome.

    Games is way smoother on Android, than on WP7.

    The problem with games like Monkeyball, is that its made to run at 60 fps because of the accuracy required. On Wii and Gamecube its instant 60 fps, but also on Android.

    WP7 games is usually only running at only 30 fps MAX.. WP7 phones is underpowered for most 3D games. What did MS think of when they made WP7???

    Hard or not, 79p is a good price. I can't resist the cheap ones =]

    Technically it's $0.99 or 99 cents if you want to be an ass about it :)

    Nothing wrong with the tilt controls on my HTC Pro 7...but ONLY if I flip out the keyboard and then the tilt controls just seem to be spot on.

    Who was owned? Me? If you say something costs .99, you know what that means. It doesn't have to say $0.99.

    Was really happy to see the price drop on this. Played the trial though and the controls were pretty dodgy. Now I'm torn...

    I'll probably impulse buy it at some point, but maybe not just yet!

    Complete & utter shite - whoever did the coding for the control must have been a sadist.

    This is the sort of dumb ass snipe comments that plaque x360, a bunch of adolescent kids fighting over the technicalities of what shade of the blue the sea is, lifes to short for fox sake.

    Back to the subject is Monkey Ball any good? I played it on the gamecube years ago and it was pretty solid back then, im guessing it uses the phones axis function? so if your a little shakey you have got no chance?

    Oh man! We got a cry baby here that wants to ruin 2 guys having fun! It didn't even involve you, so why you crying? Ell and I have probably been around a lot longer then you have, so go tell your mom to wipe your ass and move along.
