For people that bought it does it live up to how people here talk about it?

Since you asked, I gave the first level a play through and have to say: wow. Rarely do I play platformers which have this level of polish on my iPad. I really haven't given it a fair shake, but first impressions, erm, impress!

I would recommend it!

I remember playing this on a C64 emulator (back when emulators were almost unheard of!) and thinking how similar it is to Super Mario Bros 1.

Never been a big fan of SMB1 (SMB3 and onwards for me) but I purchased since when it comes to platformers I pretty much get anything Syntheticvoid recommends lol.

A bit annoyed it isn't universal though.

Didn't quite agree at first, but now that I have been playing a big yesterday night, it is funner than it looks on first sight. Starting to really dig this game now, can see why you say it now. This game grows on you for sure.

Bought it when it was $.99 in 2011 for some days. Okay: Recommended.

But: No Game Center, no Lite versions (any more), and:

Doesn't work here on iPad 4 and I can't stand the original music.
