Fantastic arcade platformer. Controls are great, gameplay is fun and challenging, and it hasn't left my device since it first came out. A must-have for platformer fans.

Social Games: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle, PAD

Hadn't gotten around to getting this one yet, and I'm happy to get the chance to pick it up for free.

highly recommended.

strangely enough, i actually like donut games' superstar chefs better. but both games are excellent.

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

I remember this one very well on the Amiga. This is a great game, works very well on iOS, the ipad version is iCade compatible as well.

An excellent game, well worth picking up

Excellent arcade-platformer. I restrict myself to one folder of games on my iPad (20 games) and Quak has survived several clean outs since I got it.

Note that such a retro game doesn't work for retro players.
It is sold as compatible, but it is NOT.
