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

Hope you all love it :-)

"The #1 INDIE tribute to the retro 8-bit era of the 80's and 90's."

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.

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.
