Tweejump submitted to App Store

Jump on platforms, collect coins on the way, and get highest score.

Tweejump is a jumping arcade game inspired by many wonderful games including Icy Tower, Doodle Jump, PapiJump, and others.



Video demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtPiVIlCfMY

Already submitted to the App Store, so hopefully coming soon.

For developers:
I decided to keep game sources open

I don't think it's very beneficial to compare your game to one of the best jumping games on the market (arguably): Doodle Jump. Anyone who has interest in a jumping game will surely look in that direction.

I'm not trying to put you or your game down, but there doesn't seem to be anything original about it. (Not to mention your bird looks strikingly similar to NimbleBits BlueBird character). Doodle Jump has the reviews that will make the sales, are you planning on making sales from association?

Hope, you won't get problems with Twitter
At least animate the bird's wings while jumping,
otherwise you really just move a dead pixel logo of a company

Ah, I didn't even recognize that. No wonder it's called Tweetjump. There has to be some copyright infringement on this. Why not just steal somebody else's logo that millions of people don't see every day. The lengths people go to to make a dollar these days.
