I had an early copy of this. Its really good, i love platformers, specially with weapons and lots of levels. A lot of content, graphics are great and it plays well.

Totally advise you to get this specially for 99c

Controls work very well, usual positions, bottom left for left/right and attack etc on the right. You can adjust the controls, change the opacity and also move where you want the buttons. You can move the position of the A/B buttons as well so you can have them next to each other, or staggered etc

For 99c its a no brainer. I'm not being super positive as i got an early version of it, if it wasnt any good i would say so. I'm a big fan of platformers specially action ones like this so i'm glad its lived up to my expectations

Flawlessly...and with fully customizable controls.

I wish I could have done a little write-up for this, but between work and getting eye surgery, I've been super busy. Let's just say this is easily one of the best platformers on iOS, complete with some superb exploration, heaps of levels, unlockables and achievements, crisp retina enabled pixels...oh, and boss fights...Yes, delicious boss fights.
