FULL CHARACTER CONTROL

CLASSIC SIDESCROLLING ACTION
Take a walk down memory lane to your favorite platformers of the 80's and 90's (if you're old enough) ^=^
Stomp on enemies, collect coins, find hidden power ups, shoot everything even battle giant endbosses!

HD GRAPHICS AND CINEMATICS
Cinematic cut scenes set the stage. Top notch, high res textures throughout the game. No pixelated blurryness here!

AWESOME CHARACTER UPGRADES
Earn new weapons and armor upgrades to aid in your epic quest to ask out the robo girl of your dreams.

Looks good, but it will live or die on its control scheme. Any first impressions from yourselves way down there would be marvelous.

Games that will never leave my iPad : Great Big Wargame, Battle Academy, Battle of the Bulge, Ravenmark and Hunters 2.

Of the games releasing tonight, I'm most interested in this. I'll need to wait for a video displaying the controls though.

Me too, but I don't care about vids etc, this is must-have iOS gaming at it's very best. I'll also be picking up Gesundheit, Mad Wheels and Marbians tonight.

By the way, the utterly fabulous Cordy released this morning (bought 2.99 IAP to get full game).
