Hey everyone! I'm Ethan Benanav, the developer of Super Happy Fun Block

The game just officially launched iOS! Super Happy Fun Block was made as a way to bring great console/Steam style gameplay to the iPhone - so if you are looking for a deeper mobile game experience, you should definitely check it out! It's very polished over 3 years of work went into it!

It also has controller support, though there's no tutorial for how to use the controller so I recommend playing it with the touch controls for a few levels before switching.

I'd love it if you guys all let me know what you think of the game!

Instabuy. Love it. Great writing, art, music, and definitely puzzles.

Great puzzle platformer. And personally, I love the controller support and found it intuitive. Although I did play two levels before I used a controller so I can't really say anything about JUST using a controller. Great touch controls too. But I do love my little mifi controller for platformy games.

I PMed you a hint Feel free to move on without the star - you can use the map from the pause menu to return to the level later. You may pick up some tricks if you keep playing that could help you out on that puzzle.

Damn this looks great! Only saved $2 credit though. So it will surely go on my back burner for next week! Congrats to the Dev.

This is an absolutely phenomenal release. How this thread hasn't been getting more attention is absolutely criminal. There's such obvious love poured into this game, from the animations right down to the flawless controls. Check this out if you're into puzzle-platformers. It's right up there with the best and most charming of all of them.

The lack of attention, maybe and only imho, might come from a super lame and too long name, saying "SuperHap..." under the icon that implied to me everything else, but definitely not being such a great and charming puzzler.
People (as i did) might judge only from the not very appealing screenshots at first sight and easily pass over. The obvious love in this work is only to be seen in a video, unfortunately.

If you like a unique puzzler, and as it seems a brainstorming one rather soon too, get this one.

PS: the swiping to jump is something you have to get used to. After the tutorial, it became naturally to me.
