Dang, I speak of perfect controls and then I got some issues this time. On the left side, the steering gets only registered on the upper half of the screen, although it's showing an area down at the bottom at the beginning, but I died trying to touch there because nothing happened. It's on the iPhone... anyone else having that problem?

Besides that, brilliant again. The sound effect alone! "Thank you".

I'm enjoying this game a lot, but find myself wishing that the music in the trailer was part of the game. I think that it is really catchy and that it honestly is a tune that fits perfectly with the game, only adding to the unique atmosphere.

Oh well, this still rocks.

On the Llamasoft forums they actually posted a link to the music from the video. I'll PM the link.

Ok, just redownloaded the app, still got the control bug. Hope that gets fixed since the caves soon get pretty challenging and my thumb covering the screen makes it a bit annoying... I just want to tap the lower corners.

Naturally, being from Llamasoft, I picked this one up tonight. It's as good as Minotaur Rescue and Minotron, and better than Goat Up and Deflex.

I'm just a sixteen bit sprite in an eight bit game.

Meeeeeeeeeeeeh...another Jeff Minter release. Who cares?

Oh who am I kidding? I bought this at 5 a.m. believing it compelled me to wake up and download it. I will blindly throw money at Minter/Llamasoft...I want to make that extremely clear. 5 apps, no price changes, absolutely no in app purchases (a stance I don't see Llamasoft ever changing)...what's not to love about these guys? I first got addicted to the ways of the Llama after I purchased GoatUp, but I'd like to sincerely thank my friend CygnetSeven for persuading me to get their other titles. Haven't regretted it since.

gameplay is quite fun but the controls could be much better. the thrust should be working by taping not only in the top part of the screen or otherwise it just covers a lot of stuff when you go up. also the steering, it would be really nice to have a tilt control option. touch controls are a bit to sensitive for precise movements and also you cover part of the screen. so overall it's ok but it's probably more fun on ipad with current control scheme.

Writing on calendar... someone listened to me today.

I love how Jeff's games come out of the blue and are such awesome treats. I'll spare everyone me Llamasoft fanboyisms and just say I renamed my cat Jeff Minter and leave it at that. *don't think she's all that happy either*
