I snagged it. The controls are pretty intuitive but took me a minute or two to get the hang of (sort of). Anyone with more skill than me with games on the iPhone, which I'm sure is most of you, should have no problem.

Very nice retro look/feel and worth checking out... though the price might put off some people.

Hmmm, looks interesting... but what the video doesn't show is how the controls actually work, in terms of finger input...
Where do you touch? How do you touch? etc.
I'm not a fan of seeing demo videos on emulators, and I'd much rather see a recording of someone actually playing it on an iPad so I can see how the player actually interacts with the screen.
As Vic and Bob would say, we really wanna see those fingers!

This looks like it would frustrate the hell out of me, in a good way. Considering.

How do you touch?
When in flight, a tap anywhere on the screen will reverse your direction. If you're suspended in air by a fan, you'll swipe in whatever direction you'd like to go. When standing, you press and hold on the screen to "duck", and you fly up when you release your hold. You can "step" left and right by using a gesture in the direction of where you'd like to move.


This game is great. It's challenging in the later levels, but never frustrating, and there are lots of hidden secrets to discover. The touch controls are not a problem. Having said that, I'd love to see support added for the iCade. With the nice retro vibe that this game has, I'm guessing that this would play great on there.

Yeah 1.99 is a bit higher than usual but having played it, it's a lovely little slice of retro goodness. Nice style to the graphics, full of character. Chip tunes are very NES inspired... nice.

Seems to be quite a bit of hidden stuff too.
