Doom's comments:
I am proud to announce that Pixeleap Studios has just finished their newest game, Up To The Top and it has just been released for IPhone and IPod!
Up To The Top is a beautiful side scrolling platformer that kids and adults alike will love to play, taking control of a cute little dinosaur to make that difficult climb to the top. Each level you tackle will have several ways to get to the top, and the path you choose will determine if you make it to the finish line before the clock runs out.. Pick the wrong path and you will have to start again, while keeping in mind that the more perilous route sometimes yeilds some super items to collect!
Up To The Top runs like a dream on older devices like iPhone 3G, looks great on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and screams on iPad. Peter with Pixeleap is dedicated to bringing you the best iOS games..please use this space to let them know how you like their efforts..Thanks

Adjustable D-Pad position on the iPad listed as a feature yet the app isn't universal?

Hi Gabrien,

The game is not in a hd version, but we adjusted The joypad position for those of you who prefer to play on your iPad. It does upscale fine, but is not hd

Not bad

Not too shabby for an iOS platformer. Better-than-average level design, decent graphics, good sound, good control. I do wish there was more to to it than collect and avoid, but the levels are fun to play.

BTW, I'm playing on iPad and 2x still looks good.

Wow! So far I am pretty impressed!

The controls are good, physics are good, gameplay is pretty good, and challenging. I like how you loose time when you hit an enemy. The animations are alright... The first thing I noticed is that you don't turn around when you change directions in the air, you move backwards... Doesn't effect gameplay, but it looks a little funny...

You run around the levels, collecting gold, looking for, so far, 4 bigger clumps of gold, and one golden ice pick, in each level. You are timed, and loose time when you run into or touch an enemy, but there are clock pickups throughout the levels. So far, I'm liking it! In the trailer, it looks like collecting gold slows you down a tad, but that's not the case in the game, at least I didn't notice it while playing... Recommend it if you want another speedrun platformer! =oD


**edit**

I take it back, now I am noticing some slight slowdown when collecting coins in the air...

It doesn't hurt gameplay or your time... Just weird... When walking and collecting coins, you go right through em, but in the air it's like you're hitting the coins... =o/


There's also only 16 levels, and 3 challenge levels, are you guys planning on adding more in the future?
