Nice retro graphics and sound. You can go left so its not a runner. Presume the controls are decent. Surprised the filesize seems quite large but i'll buy this one for sure

It's fantastic on PC; great visuals, soundtrack and difficulty. Can't comment on the iOS version but both ESJ games on steam are must buys, can't see this being any different!

Wow, such awesome dialog, "the wizard was a penis-face", "butts are a sensitive subject". LOVE IT. So far the controls, seem good. They are using virtual button areas but the areas for movement are diagonal corner buttons. They are weird but they seem to work. This game also gives you a steam key.

I wonder if the original game is on iOS too, or coming to iOS! Nonetheless, this looks awesome! The soundtrack is amazing too

No. Let's pretend that I put a / in the bottom left corner.and boxed it off. The left and right buttons are like two triangles stacked into a square. Jump is just a normal button tap.

It's not on there yet, trust me, I checked a few times as I'd happily buy both haha. But I'm keeping an eye out - the first would certainly be preferable as it's longer, but I'm not complaining

Dang semi opaque controls take up over half the screen and turn almost completely opaque when you press them. I can't see and it's very distracting
