Great game

Just bought this game on sale, and all I can say is wow. This is the first 2d platformer that gives me hope that platformers can be played on the new ipad. Kind of gave Me hope on these kind of games on ios because of poor controls, but this one plays good. I like the joypad control over the stand left right controls.

The graphics look great on the new ipad. I love the cartoony computer comic look to the game. The games plays really fast too which I like, and some of the bosses I saw in review videos look great.

Highly recommended on new ipad. On my iphone 4, my thumbs seem to take most of the screen space, so it's harder to see and there is some framerate issues. Still recommended, especially now on sale for one dollar.

But if you have the new ipad, buy it! I had given up hope for 2d platformers until this game, but now I sure hope Nintendo would make a Super Mario game for the Ios.

Frame rate is pretty low on iPhone 4. Low enough to make the game unemployable. If you have a newer generation iPad, consider getting it, but if you have an iPhone 4 or anything older, I suggest staying clear of this one.

That's strange. I've had it on my iPod touch 4 since it came out, and I've never had speed issues with it at all. Great game!
