Forgot to mention in the thread title that it is Universal

Edit: Nvm, managed to edit it in the end.

This game is awesome, very nicely polished. Everyone should give it a try while it's free.

If you like Jepack Joyride, Mighty Fin, or Whale Trail make sure to check it out.

It seems like a kid-friendly version of Jetpack joyride. Decent in itself, but definitely a copy.

It really is like they took Mighty Fin and made it into Jetpack Joyride. Frankly I like Jetpack Joyride more but this game is really polished, colorful and fun. For free its an incredibly easy download.

People are gonna disagree with me but, after playing Sea Stars today (I posted this thread last night but hadn't played the game at the time), I personally think it's better than Jetpack Joyride. This game is more polished than JJ and has better graphics and presentation. Overall I find it more varied and enjoyable. It may be a copy of JJ but it's a bloody good copy that does a better job than the game it copies.

I paid for Jetpack Joyride but would have rather paid for this game than JJ.

At least it's gone free whereas Jetpack Joyride, the game it borrows ideas from, probably never will.

And both have iAPs.

Jetpack Joyride effectively went free when Apple did the Facebook promo event where you could generate promo codes.
