Thought this was about Mr. Bean. Disappointed.

Sucker for platformer, therefore I had to download this immediately.
AND after level 1 I quickly have to jump in to say: WOAH!!

Music, graphics = fantastic, full of love and detail!!

And the controls are pretty original and perfect for the idevices.
Your bean character is jumping all the time, so you just have to control the movement to the sides. Works great!

Will have to play more. But the first level was already brilliant. The graphics! You have to see them in motion. Lovely pixel heaven... together with the music. I'm smiling. Could become my new favorite platformer...

But that's just after level 1... so, playing more now

Looks like a great game, still stuck on 1bit Ninja but this one will be mine soon IMHO

EDIT : Hmmm, only 8 stages ? 24 on the next update, for 2.99 ? Maybe a lil bit expensive for this content nah ?

your personal robot's comments are spot-on. I am so glad I forked over those 3 dollars...this game's amazing. Not sure why some of the game isn't retina considering how small it is, but the graphics are gorgeous. Much like Mos Speedrun, To-Fu and 1-bit Ninja, the game makes sure you play each level more than once....once to get the perfect jump count, once to collect all diamonds and once to find your pet. I'm genuinely impressed here. As syntheticvoid would say...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Aaaaaaaaah!!! So far, only one world with 8 levels! Devs clearly wanted the game to be out and add more content in the future... but I think, with platformers it's the wrong way to go. Content is king. And I love these 8 levels, introducing a lot of elements. Vertical levels, switches, physics stuff with balls and stones, secret paths.... everything is really absolutely top-notch. Also high replay value for different goals (finish the level using as few jumps as possible, collecting your buddy Axolotl (lol), collecting all diamonds).

Devs, please bring more worlds, this could be one of the best (if not the best platformer in the store).

And a little story would be lovely too. The characters are fantastic. Why not giving us kind of an intro.

This game rules. So polished its crazy it hasnt been promoted and highly anticipated. At least I havent seen anything about it before today. Normally I never buy games the day they come out unless they're 99 cents, I knew from the screens and description I'd love this one though and I gotta say after just 3 levels this is absolutely worth 2.99. There looks to be a decent amount of content and there's plenty of replayability with the diamond collecting, axolotl finding and perfect jump awards for each level. Graphics are wonderful and nicely animated. Levels are well designed. The Checkpoint system is great - you can restart a level from the last checkpoint at any time. This helps avoid having to replay an entire level to collect everything. Can't say anything about the music as I'm playing in bed next to my sleeping girlfriend. But I'm sure its just as quality as the rest of the game.

The only thing I would change would be to lessen the inertia/momentum effect when moving and speed up the jumping just a little. I was hoping for something that controlled like Super Spike Dislike.

I take back what I said. :/ I just can't recommend this in it's current state for $2.99. Yes, more levels are coming, but 8 levels for 3 dollars is a tough sale.
