App description: Now with all new unlockable characters and updated game play!

********************************************************************************************************
Kara-Tap is a casual game inspired by some of the famous old-school karate arcade games. The game is very easy to play with its simple controls, and yet very difficult to master.

1. tap the up/down button to kick high or low. Time your kicks to break the boxes and bricks being thrown at you.
2. use the same buttons to duck and jump over the ninja weapons aimed at you.
3. "ki-ai"! Try to hit the color-changing bonus box that flies by at 100 miles per hour. This will get you into fever mode, where you can break everything and anything.

Are you up to the task of becoming a Kara-Tap master?? "KiAi"!!

You guys did such a good job with this game.
For all of my high score chasing, simple arcade twitchy game loving, Game Center leaderboard addicts, this one is definitely worth a download.

The retro graphics are nice, and it has a real fun sense of humor. Th controls are perfect. The sounds are nice. The one more try replay value is perfect.

4/5

Hi Lazer Kat,

Thank you so much for your kind words You have no idea what this means to us. As a couple of indie developers, this is our first title ever, and you are the very first person to leave us a review in any of the posts we put up on gaming sites. And we are so very thrilled to see such positive review!
I really hope that many more users/players who feel the same way as you can find and enjoy our game

Please look us up once in a while, as our next update and a whole new game is in the works.

Thanks!

Hi

I just download this and gave it a few tries before posting I love it's art style and music but the controls need an option to move them to the other side of the screen as I'm having a hard time with them on the right must be because I'm left handed! Also I keep catch the banner ad with it being at the bottom close to the control, must be my fat fingers lol.

Still enjoying it and look forward to an update and other games from you

Hi mj132,

I'm really glad that you're enjoying our game As for adding an option to move the control to either side, I think it's a great idea! I'll make sure I put that in my next update (although it will be a next-next since I put in an update for review already).

Along with your suggestion, we are going to add a number of unlockable characters, so please be on the lookout for this major update lol

Thanks so much for leaving us a review

oh and...

I forgot to mentioned this, but since this isn't regarding our update, it worked out well I guess

I just wanted to let you know that Android version of Kara-Tap! is on its way to Google Play We're looking at about a week, so please spread the word to your Android/Nexus/Lollipop friends!

Thanks!
