If you come across any bugs, please consider reporting them to bugs@eiswuxe.de before giving the game a low ranking. Thank you!

*** STORY ***
Help Bloo Kid to rescue his girlfriend from the hands of the evil Wizard in this fancy retro-style "one-screen" platformer. Jump and run your way through 84 action-packed levels spread across five unique worlds.

*** GAMEPLAY ***
- use the on-screen touch-controls to jump and run
- jump on enemies to defeat them
- defeat all enemies to clear a level
- clear a level without getting hit to receive the "flawless" star
- grab the star at the end of a level to receive the "special" star
- receive enough stars to unlock more worlds

*** WARNING ***
This game can be extremely difficult and frustrating :)

Looks promising.

You can move forward AND backward... come on, how "retro" is that?!?

Tried the lite. Not really a platformer like you may think. I thought it was a sidescroller (I should have read the description better), but each level is just the one screen and you just jump on the spawning blobs until they are all gone, then grab a star, end of level. Got bored a few levels into the lite. Definately not my cup of tea...

The game is such a waste of potential that it almost makes you cry. The graphics are good, the controls are pretty much spot on, the jumping feels good, and the framerate is excellent. Unfortunately, the gameplay is so hobbled that it't pretty much pointless. The levels are tiny -- the size of a single screenful of a standard scrolling platformer -- and seemingly randomly designed. Your only objective is to kill a set number of enemies by bouncing in their heads; when you are done, a single star drops somewhere on the level. You pick it up and move the next randomly designed level. Rinse and repeat.

Stay well away from this one.

yeah I ended up trying the lite as well... and you pretty much nailed it on the head.


got bored VERY quickly... there's nothing really new in it... the movement is kinda slow...

The controls are responsive, the jump is alright... the physics could use a little work, but they aren't bad enough to be deal-breaking...

It's just boring...


Needs some power-ups...

If it was a side-scroller, it would be a LOT better...

movement and physics could be worked on a bit...

it's by no means bad... but I'm still gonna skip buying it.

Yup, got the lite after seeing it and thought it would be something actually like a platformer. Instead, it's some game that involves jumping on enemies in different environments - would be lucky to be called a platformer. Sorry for posting about this one, skip it. Like now...

Waiting for: Airborne Troopers, Mini Motor Racing. Minisquadron 2, Tweetland, Car Jack Streets 2, Drive Forever, Turf Geography Club, Junk Jack!!
