This was an arcade staple in the 90's. I only found video of the original game so far:

Thanks a ton for this thread !

Been expecting this but thought it would be tomorrow. Rod Land is a great old arcade game. Back in the days of Bubble Bobble/Parasol Stars etc this was another 'cute' platformer. Nice little platform game, hopefully the controls are decent.

Had this on my ZX Spectrum in the 80's but it had monochrome graphics then.

This seems to be the arcade original 'wrapped' up in their iOS controls. Just bought and downloading now !

REALLY hope one day we'll get...

Oops apologies ! Wonder what you meant first !

I missed that out as i quickly pressed the screen to get past the intro. Just checked out the original arcade ROM and it has this great piece of english at the beginning ! So i'm glad its the actual original rom itself. But yeah looking at it its a funny mistake

PSJ, any comments on controls? If they're decent, I'll buy.

Only had a quick go. Touch controls. Can be relative. Can edit them and move them around if you want. Not bad at all. Enjoying it a lot
