App description: Adventures of Pip is a delightful little platformer full of charm, challenge and impeccable level design.
4/5 Hardcore Gamer

"A retro platformer that sets itself apart with the protagonists transformation from a single pixel into 8- and 16-bit incarnations."
8/10 - EGMNow

The unique gameplay mechanics, including evo- and devolution, further add to the game's appeal, setting it apart from many of the modern platformers available today.
4.5/5 Gizorama

Adventures of Pip revitalizes the classic side-scrolling action platform genre. Pip -- the ultimate digital underdog is a lowly single pixel in a 32-bit world who proves that you cant judge a hero by the fidelity of his shaders. During the game, Pip gains the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing pixels from his fallen foes. Those same pixels can then be used to blast through environment puzzles and enemies, devolving Pip back to a single pixel. Players will explore five stylized worlds and experience up to 10 hours of epic adventure saving Pips village from the evil Queen DeRezzia.

Inspired by classic platformers, Adventures of Pip basks in a world where players can defeat a huge 32-bit boss as a single pixel or even as an 8-bit character.

With three different forms, evolve and devolve Pip to solve puzzles and defeat enemies; each with their own weakness and strength that must be unraveled throughout the campaign.

The game is in fact universal. No idea why the TouchArcade tag and appinfo show it as an iPhone only game.

Looks great but wish I knew what the controls were like. No mention in the app description and you can't tell on those screenshots

First the not so good news about a part of the controls. The fight/jump/d-evolve buttons are small and squeezed in the right corner, so for some of you guys, this could be a serious problem on an iphone. No customization possible.
On the left we have analog or d-pad (no controler option) with an opacity option which is needed, since they didn't shift the game up a bit. The hitbox is big, so you can go all the way down to the screen to control and see everything. Some won't like that either.

Now the very good part about the controls. They work perfect and i get along very well. Only two levels in, but i consider this a platform goddess, already.

Edit: seems i was wrong about extern controlers, though i didn't see the specifically sign for it. You can play with them!

This game was extremely anticipated. It came out on steam and got overwhelming reviews. Had no idea it was coming to iOS! Awesome stuff. I've watched plenty of gameplay. This is an insta buy. How are controls on the iPhone?
