Punch Kidd lets you re-live your favourite game as a kid, complete with frantic air punches, ghostly enemies and miracle puzzles. Master a world of 16 epic, challenging and diverse levels. Blocky pixel-art and chirpy chiptune soundtracks of 80's consoles will bring this world to life - in your hand, all running natively and fullscreen on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch!

Punch Kidd respects your time and will never interrupt you with annoying notifications asking you to play it.

Punch Kidd contains absolutely NO ADS or popups - just pure fun on your terms.

Hope you all love it :-)

How I hated those rock paper scissors battles when I was a kid...

I wonder how controls are. I don’t usually like platforming on touch screen.

Lol I had that game on the Sega Master System and the controls were always getting busted, buttons would get stuck

Hi I'm the developer. I posted this earlier today in a new thread, didn't realise this was here, so thanks PeteOzzy for sharing.

No Janken matches in mine i'm afraid (good thing?).

The controls take some getting used to, but I think some of the handling is better. The physics is slightly less "floaty".

I must apologise to iOS7 users, who are experiencing crashes on launch. Update will be out in a few days to address this! Or you can update to iOS8, that'l fix the issue.
