I tried this when it was free and it seemed like the timing was off or something. My jumps were not not landing where you would expect them to. I really wanted to like this game but that issue made it unplayable for me.

Hi Repulsa, thanks for the feedback. I want to let you know that this is a new game and includes tons of improvements compared to the old game you've probably played.

The controls got more easy to use and flexible to the user's needs, also the jump responsiveness and the movement buttons got a big update. You can try it and let me what do you think.

Thank you.

Why do you keep re-releasing the same game over and over again?

This was originally Pixel World: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=260779

Then you released it as The Super Bro: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=281463

There was also another one named The Super Bros mixed in there at one time: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=260789


And now we have yet another version of this game, which you are charging people for. You've pulled the previous games, so I guess anyone who has bought those is just screwed and has to buy it again or something?

I know you are attempting to improve the game which each release, but that's why Apple allows you to do UPDATES to your games, not simply pull them from sale and then re-release them for a new price. It's really scummy IMO.

On top of all that, you're very obviously trying to ride on the popularity of Mario, which is almost always a bad sign when it's as blatant as it has been in this series of games.

So tell me why I should buy your game if in all likelihood you're just going to pull this version in a few weeks and release a new one?

I soft clapped at every one of these points.

Well said.

Got to agree. Why aren't you simply updating the game rather than re-releasing it over and over? I've already paid for this once and am stuck with non responsive controls, and a jump/fire button that should be swapped, or at least let the player move the buttons where they feel comfortable. I'm not buying it again hoping the controls are better now...

Yep. Made the mistake of buying the version right before this. The controls were crap. Deleted it. Then saw this. Didn't know about the other versions before the one I bought. Now I know to avoid anything further from this developer.

Yeah I'm just going to ignore any/all posts from him at this point.

Really bothers me that he's even able to still launch all of these "new" games. As a parent, it'd be easy for me to think "hey a Mario game. Only a buck!" Thankfully I'm smarter than that, but I know this gimmick probably works on some (non TA readers, just average App Store searchers).

i'm totally with you!

i remember buying a game by this guy an year ago, more or less, a kind of Pokemon but not completed at all, it was like a demo, so i've emailed him and he told me that in a couple of weeks would be completed and submitted the patch... never happened, so i've ask Apple for a refund and report about this guy behavior.
Now this!
