What's up with this? I know I've seen this icon and this game (or at least a different version of it) before. It got a lot of attention here on TA, at least pre-release.

I checked " other apps by this developer" on the TA iphone app, and this was the only version.

Is this stolen? A different game entirely? Wha...I got my confused face on right now.

There's also a separate HD version out. Also free. I never got it the first time around (if this is a different version)...oooooh! This game is so adorable! I'm going back to play it more.

Oh wow. The name, the icon, the concept is fantastic.

Maybe it's because I have 2 super young children but I want to support this app in the name of childhood imaginations.

Yeah I remember this game, from earlier this year. I think I tried to search for it some time after it was released, and it was gone from the app store. Not sure what the story is there, but looks like it's been re-released with added stuff. And it's free.

I don't know...I rember some people were bothered by the controls, but it seems fine to me. I have a feeling the price will jump soon.

Superb cutscenes, simple, yet fun zelda style controls, great music, a kid wielding a cardboard sword, wearing a cardboad hat...out to rescue his stolen toys by travelling through the portal in his closet...

Simple graphics, but with a charming design...ZERO iapps. ZERO advertisements.

What we have here is a free lunch. Eat it before they realize they forgot to charge you .
