I took one for the team

Not too happy when i load the game on the menu theres a bottom banner with links for his other games (you can click on the X to close it) but didnt expect to see ads like this on the menu when i've paid 1.99 for this.

The game itself 'might' be HTML5 or Gamesalad as theres a rotating loading symbol in the bottom right hand corner.

The game itself isnt too bad, controls seem okay. The font used at the end of a level showing the score etc looks cheap and nasty though. It has 'level score' and 'world score' but world you can hardly read as the start and ends of the word seem to be a bit cut off.

I'll probably carry on playing it but once i reach a certain level i can imagine it'll be quite frustrating when it gets super tough as these types of games can be. Graphically its very good, nice retro style graphics and the controls arent bad at all. Just the resume!

Just played again and annoyingly my progress doesnt seem to be saved, if thats the case i'll probably delete this quite soon if theres no 'resume'

Tried again, closed the app (didnt double tap and close it down fully), went back into it and had to start the level again. I'll probably delete it now, oh well

No worries, if there is an update where you can resume your progress etc it would be a decent game, i was going to say at 99c but then again as this is probably an indie title they need a decent bit of money back.

Having ads in a paid game (even if it is the from the same developer/publisher) its just wrong in my opinion, just add a "more games" tab.

I like the video, and if it controls good Ill bite, huge fan of Super Meat Boy... But the ads, oh well...

Also Im inviting the developer to this forum...

Thanks for TTOFTT PSJ3809!!

totally agree... ads in a paid game = completely ignore the title, and probably all future games from the dev.

Bought this to see what psj was talking about...idiotically, I might add...and deleted it within seconds. Hell, that ad banner pops up in the pause menu too. Avoid.

Default Game Impressions

"It says Universal but Im not sure"

-The app is universal and match with iPhone5 screen size.

"Not too happy when i load the game on the menu theres a bottom banner..."

-Yes I know sorry... but to delete this banner Gamesalad ask me 299$...
maybe one day...

"...with links for his other games"

-The games are ones of the gamesalad community...

"Graphically its very good, nice retro style graphics and the controls arent bad at all."

-Thank you!!!

"Just played again and annoyingly my progress doesnt seem to be saved, if thats the case i'll probably delete this quite soon if theres no 'resume'

-Sorry to read that! for now your are the only one that report this bug, but I'm working very hard on an update, I hope to release it in June.
this will add a lot of new features:
-2 players mode
-Boss mode
-1Life mode (only for the true hardcore gamers )
-30 new levels for beginners, casual gamers and for your little sister or your grand mother... (for single and 2P modes)
-New level design for some levels.
-New boss design
-New textures for the first world.
-New design for the start menu. (there is a mini game in the start menu...)
-New game menu (now you can select a world and play each level one by one if you already have unlocked it)
And a new rating system: finish the level: 1 star / finish the level and get ten hearts or 0 death: 2 stars / finish the level without dying and with the ten hearts: 3 stars.

I hope it will fix your issue.


I hope you will enjoy these news.
Sorry for my bad English.

Yeah, I dont have an iPad and don't trust the iTunes requirements section so I dont want my TA friends to buy something they cannot play. Now that I know, I updated my post with this new information.

And welcome to TouchArcade by the way.
