roccofriday's comments:
Hey, i just wanted to announce my game which i was working on as a project on faculty and it had the potential to be improved. So i made better graphics and improved the gameplay. The game for now has only one level, but i'm hopping, if i get a good response from you guys, that i'll be expanding it and making more levels. It's a universal build so you will be able to play it on all iOS devices, i should just mention it lags a bit on iPhone4 and below...but it works perfectly on the newer versions, especially on iPads. Great graphics on iPad!

Definitely not a bad little game for free, but I feel as if the jumping is too floaty, and the game just feels slow paced due to how slow the character moves, I also feel the jump and shoot buttons should be switched around...

But not too bad for free.

Thanks, yeah i know...the frame rate drops if on iPhone4 or below, the iPhone4S and the iPads have much better gameplay flow.
Hmm maybe i should think about switching the buttons...
