Quick imps:

It's a runner with interesting mechanics. Tapping on the left side of the screen flips you (similar to Gravity Guy 1 and VVVVVV) and tapping and holding on the right side puts up a sort of shield barrier in front of you.

Tapping and holding the right side makes you go forward at the same speed, but using it mid-air will make you stay in that height. You can also put this barrier up to protect yourself from enemies and break some wooden obstacles.

There are 40 stages in mission mode, and there is an endless mode.

The visuals are pretty nice, reminds me heavily of Everplay's pixel art style.

Cant say much about the sounds since im playing on low volume as my son's sleeping beside me right now.

Overall it's pretty interesting so far, and im liking it a bit.

Yep, it definitely has its charm, but against the app store's description, this is not optimized for iphone 5, at all. Two black bars left/right without recognition of your input. Huge fail my dear Dev. (Same with your other game)

This is really fun, especially the endless mode. The suspension-of-gravity shield definitely makes for an interesting mechanic.

Could use a pause button, though.
