This is a classic platformer on iOS, looking forward to trying this out

Yeah sorry was meant to put that.

I dont mind the lack of widescreen support, just played a few levels and i'll be playing this much more later (moved it from my Platform games folder to 'Best'), great little retro platformer

If anyone is jailbroken, you can actually install a tweak which basically stretched the screen of the app to accommodate the black borders of iPhone 5. it does a good job, doesn't make the game look out of proportion. But i forgot the name of the tweak.

I'm pretty sure they added widescreen support but it's bugged on the iPod Touch 5th Gen and treats it as a 4th gen screen size. I remember the same bug affected that He-Man platformer game for about a year before they fixed it for iPod users.

Annoying. Anyone want to contact the developer to let them know?

EDIT: I sent them a quick e-mail to alert them to the issue. Hopefully it'll lead to a simple update, but I dunno.

I heard back from them. Guess I was wrong, the developer must not have added any widescreen modes even though their app screenshots are in 16:9.

They just responded with a question asking if I wanted a stretched visuals mode. A bit of a shame.
