For those of you who have played the Sonic games, how are the controls? Do they work well for a platformer on the iDevices, or would one be better off passing and looking for platformers elsewhere?

Hi there

Newbie, just bought an Ipod Touch a few days ago and i've been addicted to it every since ! Amazing the range of games

Anyway i'm looking for any single screen platform games.

(Eg like Bubble Bobble or Bomb Jack).

Found a 'decent' Bombjack clone with Star Jim Galaxy Hero.

Just want to find more decent single screen platform games, any suggestions?

Cheers

Try the lite version of Qwak: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/qwak-lite/id395571610?mt=8

Not quite bubble bobble but a similar feel, if a bit more hectic.

As a 'newbie' I was looking for some suggestions / recommendations. Thanks.

As a big fan of Tecmo's Bombjack I thought this looked interesting:

Anyone know why it has in-apps?
