Ah, I used to love this game on the C64. Hope the controls are OK on the Iphone!

I used to have another Lamasoft game by jeff minter for my zx spectrum- I think it was called psycadelia. Whenever I loaded it up I would try and work out what I was supposed to do and always give up after about 10 minutes of watching coloured squares changing their colours. I don't think there were any instructions inside the box.

This game seems a little bit more understandable. Shoot things and don't get shot!

Easily my favorite iOS Minter game, well translated to touch screen, proper iCade support AND if you tilt the device left/right you get the VIC20 and C64 versions as a total bonus!

Please download it and give it a shot.

Maybe if we can send enough warm fuzzies Jeff's way he might come back to iOS...

Using this moment to reiterate my desire to see Space Giraffes or TxK brought to iOS. Hello? Are you listening Jeff? (please)

Jeff Minter hopefully should return to iOS. He obviously is a brilliant game designer who knows how to create awesome games. Hopefully he will see this thread.

The problem is this thread is about his game being free ! Why didnt people buy this game previously ?

I spoke to him at a show in England and he said he just didnt make enough money on his iOS games, thats why he moved to the Vita.

If more people had bought his games we would have had more great Minter games. Usual story, dev puts a lot of work in, doesnt get the sales back to make it worthwhile.

Thats why i find these 'this games now free, lets all get it' (vulture) threads depressing. A few quid for some of Jeffs games and we might be sat here talking about his new game
