This past week I finally picked this up and find it crazy that this thread is only 11 pages long. Then again I am also guilty of passing Kero Blaster up maybe due to the price tag, or the app icon, but I couldn't put my finger on why I was not intrigued enough to pull the trigger on a funny looking pixelated frog. I was also aware that this had been produced by Pixel, the same guy who created Cave Story, however he had released a simple .99 cent title before on iOS that screamed 'meh' to me, so I figured this was in the same vein.
That was until TheVerge recently wrote up an article on the 21 games every person should probably have on their iPhone and surprisingly Kero Blaster was one of them. I decided 'what the heck' and hit the purchase button on that weird looking frog sitting in my iTunes wish list window for months, and I am so glad I did! To put it simply this has been one of the most thoroughly enjoyable gaming experiences on iOS that I have had. The controls, music, sprites, abilities, variation in level/enemy design completely warrant the small price tag. I love it so much in fact that it has easily become my all time favorite iOS title and I am hoping Pixel can either continue this story into new releases, or continue creating charming platformers for iPhone!
