App description: Don't Look Back is a short game I made in 2009.

Some reviews of the original version:

"A perfect example of doing more with less" - The Escapist

"Every game with a lead character necessarily has a moral. Every single one. It's just rare that the moral is so uplifting." - Jayisgames

"It may be a pop song, but its like a Smashing Pumpkins single or something, from a concept album." - PlayThisThing

Is that really the app description? Oh well, it's free. I've got nothing to lose.

Christ, it's brilliant. It really is. Small but beautifully formed.

Meh. The second half is more interesting than the first, because I kept wanting to look back I also felt like the controls didn't always register properly. There's a reason this is free. Oh well, back to Super Hexagon.

Universal, brilliant retro graphics, on screen buttons suggesting a platformer, sepia/noir-ish mood, 11mb download, free.

With this and Super Hexagon out and VVVVVV coming soon, it's awesome to see Terry Cavanagh embracing iOS. Just the mere thought of not just being able to play the game, but hear VVVVVV's soundtrack in my pants (teehee) all the time is...well...yeah.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.
