I forgot to mention that whilst in the menu area, you have some nice playful/cheerful music playing in the background. Aww! Then, choose your difficulty. If this is the first time playing, only EASY difficulty is available. We're now loading into the game. The load literally only takes about 3 seconds, and then you can tap to begin playing.

They're pretty much like the Nintendo DS' graphics, to be honest. Pretty cool though for a music device (iPod Touch) -- something to impress your friends with!

You are them taken up into the skies when the level is complete! The lives are shown in the top right underneith the picture of your character. The bottom right of the screen displays the amount of bannana's you have collected out of the possible amount for that particular level. The bottom left of the screen shows your current travelling speed. The top centre of the screen shows how much time is remaining for that particular level. You can tap the timer to pause the level at any time. Overall, the game is good, but there is a major flaw control-wise It takes a LOT of getting use to and the slightest movement can cause you to go off-course, especially when you get to levels with no walls around the "walkways" you are rolling on. The graphics are sturdy and DS-like, therefore earning a respectable 4/5. Controls, as stated above aren't great therefore earning a 3/5. Fun factor earns a easy 4.5/5. Value for money 4/5. Overall: 4/5. I'm pretty pleased with this game, although not my all time favourite of the AppStore game collection. It's well worth getting.
