This is lovely. Great Spectrum feel and what is essentially a cross between Jet Set Willy and puzzle pinball.

I've been on this all day. Almost immaculate level design. Game centre, quicker loading and iCade would make it even more perfect. As it is, it even plays brilliantly on my iPad which I did not expect. A little pearler.

I usually can't stand tilt controls on my iPad but this game is a very rare exception.

Yep - I stuck it on my iPod and then when my kids took that I thought I'd try on my iPad. Plays like a charm. Just needs auto-rotate.

I've playing this on Android for the last week and it's definately a gem. I was ecstatic to see it brought up in the GoTW thread because I didn't know it was out on iOS. Great retro game combining rolling and platforming elements. Highly recommended.

Only thing is that it being free now you can't support the dev (unless you rebuy it on a different account). But if you wait until October you've got to wait to play it! This dev deserves support!

Wow, what a beauty! And free without any IAP, that is just criminal.

A strange strategy to say the least. He should add a tip IAP.

Wow, a spectrum homage game. This reminded me right away of Monty Mole, Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy, Dynamite Dan and all other stuff. Glad someone remembers it and made a game.
