Thought I was bad complaining when apps were ios8 only!

Had a go. Plays well but the constant unlock this for 30 gems is tiresome. Shame there isn't a retro pack. There is one set of levels based on the 1984 game though. Of course you can pay to unlock it early

Much better than the last Boulderdash game which had those 'cute' graphics but was slow as anything.

Plays really well and you can use an Mfi controller if you like.The iaps unlock levels ahead of time but the old fashioned way of unlocking by playing is easily the best way.

I tried it and it seems to be a great version of the classic game. I just wish it was a straight premium title, which I would have gladly bought. Admittedly, I am not very tolerant of the freemium trappings, so deleted.
