Wow - so excited for this as I played Montezuma's Revenge on the Colecovision - one of my favorite platformers of all time. Is there an iPad/Universal version planned?

If you played the original game (atari 5200 version), you will like it. The gameplay is nearly the same, with both updated and retro graphics skins.
