    Why you pay for it? Is totally free on Android, thats why im hating this developers... They just come to PlayBook to take advantage of apps hungry people like us, but I won't fall for it, I get them free on my Samsung tablet, I would like we get the same treatment on playbook, but they just come here to rip off people!

    I guess they don't leave us any choice, but the fact is that Union is the only game developer who releases decent new games on a regular basis and I like their games.

    BTW I purchased the game, I'll post a video review of the game by tomorrow.

    It cost money to write for a new platform. Once BlackBerry10 takes off and more people have you can expect to see more free apps/cheaper apps.

    I personally would pay for apps that are "free" on other platforms, especially if different OSes are using different monetizing strategies. Yes, it is free on the Android platform, but for them to put up a free app, they have the option to use Google Ad placement to help pay for development cost and hopefully make money. The Sushi Chop on my Galaxy Nexus have annoying ads, I am willing to pay not to see these ads and help support the developers. On a side note, the ipad/tablet version in itunes is $0.99 https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/sush...0l3Vy&ct=vb_cb

    Just my two cents.

    Well I loved it, better than Fruit Ninja, much more options and challenging (also much better performance). By the way the game is now gone from App World, wonder why?

    This is what union had to say about the disappearance of Sushi Chop. Thought you guys would like to know.

    Sushi Chop was not 100% ready for release and will be re-released in the coming weeks!

    Does the Android version have ads? I don't particularly mind paying $1 for a game that's otherwise free, but $2 does seem a bit much.

    GOF2 on iOS was briefly on sale for $1, but otherwise it costs $5, and the iOS version doesn't include the Valkyrie expansion (also $5 on iOS) that's included in the PlayBook version.

    The PlayBook version already includes the Valkryrie expansion?

    Yes, that's why it's $10. You're getting what you'd get if you paid $5 for GoF2 HD and $5 for GoF2 Valkyrie on iOS.

    Well, seen as no real review is up yet, I'll post mine for those who are thinking of picking this one up. As mentioned, it's very much like the Fruit Ninja Slash/Slice or whatever variation you've played. Despite what's been said, I actually don't find this game as responsive or precise as the fruit version. You get used to it, but there seems to be a slight delay in when you touch the screen, and when the slice is registered. This can be a little problematic, especially where the smaller items are concerned.

    Fortunately, this is one of the more forgiving games of the genre. To begin with, you can slice a fish 3 or 4 times, each slice yielding another piece that will fall onto an order of beds of rice. So rather than encouraging precise swipes, the game rewards the "swipe mash", the frantic and fast scribble swipe that can fill an order with just one fish, resulting in a cumulative price multiplier. Also, you don't lose a life if a fish is missed. The main game works with an order timer, which refreshes every time you fill an order of 4 pieces, which as mentioned, can be filled with a single fish if you can swipe mash quick enough.

    The game works in rounds, with a bonus round between each. You'll accumulate coins for each order, which can be spent on power-ups, like new blades (some of which are tap instead of swipe based, like ninja stars), more potent in-game power-ups (timer freeze, more coins per fish etc.), and one time use items, like starting you at a higher round. The bonus rounds choose a single fish, and ask you to slice a certain number of them, throwing hazardous stinky fish into the mix which when accidentally sliced, end the bonus round. The goal of the bonus rounds is to achieve three stars of competence with each type of fish, increasing the value of the fish in the regular rounds, and allowing you to achieve higher scores and more money.

    The second mode of play calls on you to fill specific orders. The game tends to be quicker, and the goal is simply to achieve a high score.

    The graphics and sound in the game are top notch. The gameplay, while feeling slightly delayed, is what you'd want (though you may get a blister), and the unlockables and buyables are a welcome addition, giving you more to play for than mere score.

    No, Valkyrie is not included. I remember some statement before the PlayBook release that made it seem to be the case (that's what got me to buy it) but it is not present in the PlayBook version nor can it be purchased in app. The PlayBook version has all the main game updates, though. So the last update is also in, which was giving iOS and Android users a taste of Valkyrie (like Kaamo station or mentioning auto turrets which can only actually be bought with Valkyrie - same with mines and guided missiles) around that addons release date for these platforms.
    When the PlayBook version came out the regular price of the HD iOS version was about 10$, too, but it was lowered since then.
    Here's a promo video for Valkyrie (SD):
