I've literally been playing this non-stop for the last 4 hours (after I accidentally clicked New Game and had to restart when I died on 5-1 >_>), but I just finished the game. Give me a few minutes to rest and I'll have some some impressions.

Spoilers: It's really good.

I hope that you don't consider it a clone, you should play the game, it's got a lot more in common with classic platformers in general than just Super Mario. The sprite sort of pays homage to his stance and moustache but otherwise you'll find more Mega Man and CastleVania references in here really.
Actually, what I saw on the video struck me as having some personality of its own. I think the $1.99 price point will be more palatable to folks -- I would just stick to that for a while.

I've tried it on a 3GS and a 4. It's a tad slow at times on a 3GS but nothing thats a deal breaker in any way. I'm up to level 2-2 and enjoying it a lot. The boss fight at the end of World 1 was an unexpected surprise. The controls are tight and responsive. The music is fun, not chip tunes but an edgy biker tune that goes with the story line. So far the difficulty is enough to make it fun, nothing too extreme (yet). :roll eyes:
I'd love to see achievements or stars at the end of each level. There are hidden lives to find. Also if we could replay a level. Other than that or a scoring mechanism, I find no fault. Great game and a nice flashback feeling!

Multiple save games in an update perhaps?

Always willing to listen to customers/players. I did some market research asking a few gamers if the $2.99 price tag was fair and a lot of them called it a bargain for 20 levels, but possibly this should have been asked more to touch gamers as opposed to general gamers. Thanks for your feedback everybody!

Already working on an update to improve performance on newer devices, it should be a drastic improvement

We have retro-themed achievements along with bonus levels in a future update! Want to make sure people get plenty of bang for their buck!

You think this would add to it? I can put this feature in in an update if a lot of people think it'd enhance the game.

If you're planning on leaving the game as it is now, I don't think that's entirely necessary. Just have a "Are you sure you want to start a new game? Doing so will erase your progress." kind of warning.

The lower price tag is now permanent until further notice. Let's see how it goes.
