Put off getting this because of my huge backlog. Saw the drop this morning and got it without thinking twice. Had really positive comments in the main thread also. Recommended to anyone who loves a good platformer. This looks like it will be one of those hidden App Store gems.

Yeah, this is a super game. In some ways it's the complete opposite end of the platform spectrum to something like Lost Socks. Very friendly platformer which gives you time to make decisions. Yet still very smart and well designed, with a nice look, sound and feel. And it is so so so much like a Mario game. Love it.

This is a (classic) platformer lover's dream! So many great moments in this game, with it's super fun levels. A steal at 0.99 cents. Go!

Loving this one, a buck is a steal. The difficulty comes not in the platforming but in finding all the hidden nooks and crannies. Anyone wanting a Metroidvania game... this is it!

Hi, what kind of error is that?
Can't purchase the game or can't open the game?

Definitely enjoyed this, but Metroidvania it is not. Discrete levels, which can be completed in their entirety the first time you play them. There's no permanent upgrade system and no areas that are locked off until you find the right upgrade later in the game.

"Metroidvania" is a term used to describe a sort of exploratory 2D platforming game. It comes from the original games of the Metroid series and some of the middle-era of Castlevania games (most notably "Symphony of the Night", which is what primarily gave birth to the term).

Thats what I meant, sorry if I misled.
