Looks good! But I'm worried it plays like Hamster House - which is the worst platformer I've ever played on iPhone.

I agree! Which is a real shame cause graphic is nice and the hamsters are so cute-looking.
Never played any Donuts game so not sure about taking the plunge.

Hey Donkei!

Thanks for the comments on the looks... having our roots in the old NES / Amiga / Arcade machines, we love pixel-art ourselves and try to present a "modernized" old school look with our Donut Games.

Sad to hear you've been disappointed at other platform games at the iPhone.
While I haven't played the game you mentioned, I'm confident platform games can be adapted to keep the original fun of this lovely genre at the iPhone... We've squeezed in our take on the genre in an "iPhone-friendly" way... (instead of using a standard D-Pad which I personally don't think match the feeling of a "real" pad or joystick, so alternative controls felt madatory)

If anyone plays Rat On The Run, please let me know what you think!
The game should run at full frame rate, and we always aim for a silky smooth flow on the scroll, sprites, etc. But hey, it's your comments that matter... not mine.

Welcome to TA. Your game looks good. Will you have a lite version soon?

Thanks Dave!

Yes, we'll most likely release a LITE version of Ratty soon. There are a few new games in pipe line that will make it to the app store first, but in a few months or so...

Since I'm a big fan of free games myself, I expect us to release the majority (if not all) of the Donut Games in LITE versions over time.

Daniel
