Love retro style platformers and its great the way this makes your ipod look like a gameboy, video below....

Only 69p, just had a quick go, its actually made by Gamesalad but looks and plays very well. Great attention to detail to make it look like an old Gameboy classic.

Speed Run Time Challenge.

Who can beat the time of 22 mins 44 secs on the Game Center leaderboard?

Thanks for making it free! I'll admit I was probably never going to take the plunge with it since it was made with GameSalad.

Buuut I have some good news. This game is actually pretty fun! Very cool homage to the original Game Boy. The graphics are great, the music is great, and the controls are surprisingly great. One thing a lot of GameSalad games do is that the buttons don't appear like you've pressed them. Like if I press right on the d-pad, it wouldn't change the image of the d-pad. It's one of the many things on the laundry list of why I hate GameSalad games.

But surprisingly, your game escapes most of these downfalls! So very good job on this game. It still has that nasty little loading circle on a certain part of the screen, but I suppose you can't do anything about that, so I don't blame you

Good job on making only the second GameSalad game I've actually enjoyed.

It was a 2D Space shooter with a retro art style. No, not very unique, but it was still fun. That's more than I can say for any other GameSalad game out there (except for this one now )

I love the game, game salad or not. Like others have said, that 1" screen is a bit rough to play on, so I use 2x my ipad and it's not awful. Thanks or the freebie. Woot!

The screen size is small as it was to be near as possible to scale. Originally the app was just for fun and was not going to be playable.

@MasterChief3624 Yeh, between Apple's rule on must have loading icons and GameSalad not allowing custom icons/bars - there's nothing that can be done.

Got a lot of requests for a Level Select option. Added the info to the app description.

****** Level Select ******
At the Title screen hold SELECT and press Left/Right to select a level.
Selecting Level 22 will start the game in Hard mode (no collectibles).
