The Last Rocket conjures the Game Boy Colors pixilation and cartoonish charms with the skill of a practiced understudy. Edge Magazine

Its almost worth it for the art style alone, but fortunately theres a smart, well-designed puzzle game coated in that sharp aesthetic. Kotaku

Retro visuals have become such a staple they're beginning to feel like they're modern again, but Shaun Inman's The Last Rocket proves it's not just about the look, it's about the entire aesthetic of the game, from the simple and easy to pick up gameplay to the sounds coming out it retro is a design principle, not just a pair of pixilated pants. Touch Arcade

The Last Rocket is a charming distraction with a wonderful retro-chic art style. Pocket Gamer

The game really shines in its later stages, when players must combine both brains and fast fingers. IGN

Its like a Game Boy Advance gem you just discovered. Adam Atomic Saltsman, Creator of Canabalt

It only took me 3 and a half years or so but I've finally completed the game with all gears. Speed run is down to 14:47. The Last Rocket remains one of my all time top 10 games on iOS.

Speed run completed, I beat the game in 00:11.45. I should have had the 'beat the game without blowing up challenge' too but for a couple of silly mistakes. That's my next aim.

Thanks guys.

I'm sorry about the little blip of a few seconds in the final level.

Nice work Andy. I love this game. Still one of the best games on the platform IMO, and I'm pretty sure you were the one who put me onto it.

The <25% achievement took me days.

Don't think I'll ever manage it without dying though.

Cheers Bez. I haven't attempted the <25% achievement yet but I can see that it will be a tricksy one.

I thought that beating the game without dying would be too difficult aswell, but having played quite a bit over the past few days doing speed runs I now know it's possible.
