Default Steve | Arcade - George Orwell was right about 1984. But how about 1996?

Well, this is a bummer. Bought on sight and put it on my iPod Touch 4, and it's an insta-crash. I have iOS 4.3, nothing says this won't work, but it doesn't. Really unhappy, because I am super-pumped to play this, and it dies before loading.

Just bought and it's like Mario Brothers. The original arcade one. It's a reasonably good version with touch screen controls on phone working very well so far. Screen doesn't flip which is a shame but easily fixed I hope. Stick on iCade too as this sort of game is perfect for it.

Love retro style games but I can't believe devs don't add a screen flip! Plus ive got an iPod touch 4 so I'll stay away sadly

Thanks for the feedback, we'll get to it.

Sorry about the crash on iOS 4, we'll see what we can do, we didn't test on older versions.

Well bought this and i think its a great Mario Bros clone.

Sorry for the confusion about the screen flip, for me its perfect (home button on the right).

Only criticism are the buttons, the left/right buttons seem way too spaced out, 'normally' for a lot of touch screen platformers the left/right buttons are on the left side then the jump on the far right. The right button seems to be in the middle which feels a bit odd

But a nice homage to Mario Bros

Sadly it seems to be a lot of confusion on how the buttons work. The directionals aren't static, to go left you just need to press a bit right, as comfortable as you feel it, it can be close or far to the left. To go left you just have to press on the same place if you already were going left or a bit more to the left for the same results.

Once you get used to it you'll realize the level of precision that can be achieve with this system, check our Alpha Footage in the YouTube channel to get a glimpse of what can be done. You can even play by swiping the screen as if it were a joystick.
