App description: MicroQuest has you take the role of a computer nerd, aptly named Curtis Nerdly. While Curtis was away doing what ever computer nerds do, the dastardly pirate menace Capt. Nick De Code made off with all your program code and scattered it all over place. Now you must search each level and retrieve the code before your game is hacked and everyone can get it for free. Imagine that!

spinal's comments:
MicroQuest is a 2D puzzle game similar to Chips Challenge and Sokoban.
Controls = swipe / iCade (& compatible)

While Curtis Nerdly was away from his computer, a nasty pirate came and stole his program code. Control Curtis and navigate a range of challenges to retrieve all of the program code and prevent it's spread via piracy.


Any feedback welcome.

A lovely oldskool puzzle game, in the sokoban mould, but with extra collectibility!
Nice, classic gameplay, and free too!!

Creator of many many games. (Seriously, LOADS!)
I'm currently working on building a new iOS collection after Apple decided to delete all my old games. My Daily Blog will be helping to track my progress.

I've played some of the game, beautiful old-school graphics and music, fun puzzles, this game has charm. However, the control scheme is not the best. Is there anyway you can change it to a virtual d-pad control or tap control? This would really improve the game.

I'll certainly consider it, I need to look at the controls a little anyway. What do you mean by 'Tap control'?
