Just bought it, specially after someone mentioned Swordigo !

So far very impressed, yep the graphics are a bit more 'rough' than some other games but there seems to be a lot of content and its a bargain at 69p. Looking forward to the updates the dev has mentioned.

So far very impressed, again its indie games like this we need to support.

The status of the Mauv 1.1 update is currently waiting for review at the AppStore. We added one more item to the update which is a tutorial hint to ensure the Player knows that they can climb while gliding.

I appreciate all the feedback, especially with the playability - gameplay is very important to me.

@Demod1 there is no plan at this time to add icade support to Mauv.

@Greyskull It runs native resolutions on all devices iPhone and iPad. I own an iPad mini which I use for all iPad testing.

A brilliant game. Simply fantastic. And I actually love the fact that its a little rough around the edges - it allows us to really see the hand of the designer in the different gameplay elements. So often, over produced Gameloft games end up feeling generic, but not Mauv. This is unique! Just left a 5 star review on the App Store and I'm going to recommend it to all my friends.

Peter- Did you design this game as a 1-man show? Or do you have a small studio / team? In any case, I hope you see some commercial success from this gem so you keep up the good work and bring us more in the future

Guys - buy this now. It's a buck well spent.

Man I'm really thinking about buying this, but between Everplay, the dev behind Dangerous, Hothead, Redlynx, Madfinger (even Origin8 for chrissakes), etcetera etcetera; and vanishing games like Alien Menace, Beat It!, the Glyder series...I could go on forever.

Anyway, I've been scarred and even glowing praise leaves me hesitant.
Though some of my favorite posters are in this thread.

Any chance a lite version will be released?

EDIT: has it been tested on an iPad mini?
What ever happened to Glyder anyway??

Glu closed down the studio when the sequel didn't do as well as expected. Eventually the game broke with a new version of iOS, and they removed it from the store rather than update it. Glu moves on to IAP-driven games.

Which is too bad: Glyder 1 and 2 were some of the first iOS "console-style" games that felt unique to the platform (even though they borrowed from other titles). I remember spending quite a bit of time trying to get the high-flyer achievement.

Great game! Really enjoying this so far really loving the soundtrack, some good music in there. The UI and the menus arent the cleanest, and the fonts are basic, but the gameplay more than makes up for it! I highly recommend checking this out! Especially at 99c.

Too much positivity in here to just ignore this thread. Bought Mauv earlier, but I'm just itching to try it out when I get home. This is quite the useless post. >_>

Doubly useless to quote your useless post. However, that is exactly what I'm doing. Now that I've gotten a bit more active around here, I find that half of my posts are of the "useless" variety. Then again, when posting in the thread of a fantastic game, if it drives just 1 single TouchArcader to check it out - is it so useless afterall?

Happy to see that you and I are on board for this game and for Ku Any other hidden gems you've found recently along the same lines?

FYI - for relevance, still loving Mauv.
