Ugh I misspelled it in the title. If any kind moderator wouldn't mind taking the time to change the title to Qwak, I'd appreciate it.

I just bought it. Thanks Royce. Kinda a quirky platformer. Lots of control settings on the ipad, so that is way cool. Highly recommended!

Gotta check if one can play this single player with the joypad app, so then I can play easily on hdmi tv with my iphone.

Looks cool. Wish it was optimized for the iPhone 5 though. Platformers are a bit of a pain with the dead space black bars on each side of the screen. May get it anyway. Are there any achievements via GC?

This is the iPad version. The iPhone version is also $0.99 though (regular price). It does have achievements I believe.

Hmm although quite different games the monsters and the umbrellas remind me of bubble bobble and rainbow island. For 99 cents worth a try I think.

Never realized that this had icade support, but thought I would just try and see what happens! And lo and behold it works! The only problem is the developer must have had an icade 8 bitty joypad, cause the button mapping is a little messed up. It uses the white start and select buttons, which are not really optimal for the core or original icades.

But not too bad. Too bad the developer didn't map more buttons to do the same functions, can't understand why developers just don't use all the buttons so players can choose which butttons to use.

Works well with icade and hdmi. As pictured.



Joypad works, but not so well. It does not load a custom template, so it uses a default template, which isn't that great. The buttons and pad are spaced at odd intervals making it hard to play for me. Prefer the regular touch controls over the joypad controls. Icade though is probably the best.

Joypad app works great in games like Infinity Field hd where it loads up a template, and dual stick works great on the joypad app, too bad more dual stick games don't use it.

Cool game, highly recommended!

I love this game. Great retro platforming but with a pretty retina skin. I found it can be a little difficult though, or maybe I've just gotten lazy.
