App description: Platforms Unlimited is a procedural, minimalistic, zen, madly hard one-button endless platformer! An arcade game like in the old times when simplicity, fun and challenge ruled.


--- Comments by the Press----

- (4/5) Cult of Mac What [Platforms Unlimited] is is addictive.
- (4/5) Touch Arcade An endless supply of constantly evolving environments, coupled with finely tuned jumping, will keep you coming back for a long time
- (4.5/5) 148Apps Platforms Unlimited takes the formula of The Impossible Game and similar titles: geometric shapes thrust into platforming environments filled with adversity. This games twist? Procedurally-generated levels. This immense variety serves as the core of an incredibly well-made game.
- (4/5) Pocket Gamer Deft controls and smart random level generation lead to one of the freshest endless-runners in some time
- (4/5) Appguiden
- iPlayApps.de This challenging arcade platformer pulled us into its spell ...
- Covered at the 148Apps Live Show
-----------

The Rules:
- Minimalistic: Touch the screen to jump, touch longer to jump farther.
- Avoid red enemies.
- The score increases by 1 every second.
- Collect coins for a bonus of 4 score points. Also used for rewards.
- Collect power-ups for gameplay bonuses.

The Challenge:
- The difficulty lies in the required jumping precision and the analysis of procedural levels to find a way through.
- The sound effects on landing, which are characterized by the level, help with timing.

Main Features:
- Procedural endless levels: every game feels different.
- Missions system: complete up to 3 missions in a game for coins rewards.
- Power-ups and trails upgrades: use your rewards to unlock and upgrade power-ups or to change the look of your trail.
- Dailies: beat 3 new 'fixed' levels every day.
- Armageddon Mode: totally unfair and fun (no power-up, coins give no score)
- Game Center leaderboard and achievements
- Video replay and share options

It's out! Beta tested this (well, the Android version) and it's a great minimalist, twitch style runner. Glad it's out for the rest of the world to enjoy!

Beta Impressions:

"You know you're playing a good game when you scare the bejeezus out of your cat by screaming "No!" when you die in the middle of a good run! That and I apparently pulled the face of a grinning psychopath when I tripled my best score in one very lucky run!

I'm by no means good at this game, especially seeing some others astronomical scores, but it says a lot when you just don't care. It's incredibly addictive, it looks undistractingly minimal but still with character and it handles perfectly. It takes a bit of getting used to, granted, but I only ever die because I've misjudged how far I can jump or I've put myself into a near impossible situation.

I love the rhythmic repetition of certain platform formations, you disappear into "The Zone" and play by pure instinct. The biggest testament of how much I love this game is that I've had eight goes in the course of writing this and it's somehow 6 in the morning. I'm going to be seeing rainbows in my sleep but it's so worth it!"

I still stand by that as well, great great game!

Beta tested as well!

It's basically like they took a minimalist twitch game, then gave it depth. It's really quite good (and difficult!)

Beta tested this one aswell and it's a great game. I'm not good at it but it's still fun to play.

Also I'd like to point out that there are coins and upgrades but NO IAP ! This alone is the best reason to buy Platforms Unlimited!

It's already out in germany.. Downloading now
