Not a bad little platformer. If the screenshots interest you, I'd say just buy it for a buck.

Think its a great retro style platformer. Wish it had some resume points as its tricky when you get so far. But the controls work very well, the SNES style graphics are very good. Well worth a buck for sure

This isnt a bad platformer. If anything, it can be frustratingly hard.

Yeah i can see what theyre trying to do, make it an old skool platformer where in those days you couldnt save your progress (Same for Kale in Dinoland) but in those days i had weeks and weeks to play a game , nowadays i'm older, games are cheaper, if a games that difficult you tend to move onto the next one.

Wish this had a save game point though!

Perfect said here! And for this reason Chillingo wins it all...casual, easy, fast games are the most suitable genre for an idevice imho

How are the controls on the iPad? Can I move the buttons around? That's a deal breaker for me if I can't.
