App description: "If you are a fan of classic platform games like Donkey Kong, you will really enjoy this updated version of a traditional genre. Instead of going back in time with pixelated graphics, this game has a polished look for todays technology, combined with old-school gameplay." - Lory Gil iDownloadBlog.com

"Exuding plenty of class, Apple Bob has the music and looks of a winner. In each case, its simply yet clearly done, ensuring that the focus still remains on the gameplay. It also echoes the golden days of titles such as Rainbow Islands, a trend that continues the longer that one plays it." - Jennifer Allen 148apps.com

Help Dash!
Save the bees!

Evil Corps gloopers have captured all the bees and its up to Dash to save them!

Enjoy some good old fashioned platforming fun, brought to you by the team of vintage game programmers at Pixel Pyro. With glorious hand drawn high resolution retina artwork and ridiculously easy to learn controls.

Play your way through 100 different levels set across 4 worlds and collect all Dashs strange hats.

See if you can unlock the hidden moon boots and leap around like an astronaut. As tested by NASA (no, really, we actually had someone at NASA testing Apple Bob!).

PixelPyros Jim Bagley and Paul Vera-Broadbent (we just call him Pab ;) ) have been writing great video games since the 8-bit days and Apple Bob is their latest wonderful creation. Grab it now and save the bees!

This is the High Definition version of Apple Bob with much higher resolution, hand drawn, artwork and higher quality audio.

*note to Adan in the UK. Apple Bob already has iCloud support ;) *

I'm having problems with the audio overlapping in the Apple Bob update.

When your playing a level, the menu music and level music play together. I tried turning off the music and sfx in options. It still clashes.
Anyone have this issue?

Yup. Something odd happened with the update we submitted with the name change. There's a new update going through approval at the moment (hopefully in time for the Christmas shutdown ) and then we'll be submitting another update in the new year with support for MFI controllers.

For the moment we're also removing the SD version (99% of players bought the Universal HD version anyway), but if you did buy the SD version it'll still be available via iCloud at any time.
Ahh, so that's why the name change, was wondering.

Wish this would get more love (Wish Touch Arcade would do a review !).

I still play this a lot, great graphics (works with iCade), a great nod to classic 80s/90s platformers (not surprising considering the programmer).

A very underated game
