Just as wonderfully worth owning as it has ever been.

One of the best iOS platformers IMHO. Fantastic graphics and music, super smooth animations, nearly perfect controls. Graphics style is a bit similar to Metal Slug series, the same pixel art beauty. Skills and upgrades to unlock, lots of great looking stages to explore, many enemies to beat, and a couple of boss fights to spice things up.

My only complaints after beating the game – 1. It is a bit short, took me around 6-7 hours to beat (including secrets, unlocking skills etc.), 2. The game was too easy for me. But that could be me, a 28 year old guy that played so many platform games in his life that only a few games can surprise him (Super Meat Boy, I’m talking to you… )

So for $1.99 this is a fantastic deal for any fan of the genre.

Favorites: The Quest Gold + expansions, Mission Europa Collectors Edition, Ascension, Jet Car Stunts 2, Junk Jack X, King of Dragon Pass, Kingturn series, Mecho Wars HD, Mini Dash, Mos Speedrun, Ravenmark, Sonic series, Fall of Angels, Highborn, Solomon’s Keep / Boneyard, pixel art games, remakes and ports of classic games.

Also one of my favorites, though, it looks pretty repulsive on the iPad.
I originally downloaded it for my iPad and was mortified.
I downloaded it on my iPhone at a later date after the traumatization had settled and really enjoyed every moment! Despite usually despising iPhone games.

Shantae:Risky's Revenge 1.99 for a limited time!

60% off! This game is truly excellent! It was originally DSiWare and is the sequel to the incredibly rare Shantae for Gameboy Color. If you can't drop 200 for the original, 2.00 is pretty cheap for this game!
