App description: Le Parker: Sous Chef Extraordinaire is a tough-as-nails platformer with tight touch controls crafted in the spirit of the classics we loved as kids. You play as Le Parker [Sous Chef Extraordinaire] who makes a meringue so perfect, so impossibly light, it literally floats. The lightest dessert, however, is the heaviest burden. Only Parkers true love has the secret recipe the Princess! But the King has his men raid her chambers! They steal Parkers secret, harness the meringues immense power for evil and banish Parker from the Kingdom! Guide our hero on an epic culinary quest to rescue the princess, assemble a kitchen of secret utensils, and give the King his just desserts. Bon Voyage, Parker!

Reviews and Write-Ups:

"One of the most fun titles of 2016."
Cult of Mac

"Head and shoulders above other App Store platformers."
MacStories

"Le Parker: Sous Chef Extraordinaire is one of the best retro-style platformers on the App Store"
Chris Carter, Touch Arcade

"Le Parker is one of the ones that gets just about everything right, and all the little things come together to form one amazing package."
Jared Nelson, Touch Arcade

"If you enjoy tough-as-nails games and love a test of your platforming skills, then Le Parker is one that you must check out. If you liked games like VVVVVV and RunGunJumpGun, then you will love what Le Parker: Sous Chef Extraordinaire brings to the genre. Ive played a ton of platformers on iOS during my time here at AppAdvice, but Le Parker: Sous Chef Extraordinaire is one of the better ones Ive found. The game is absolutely gorgeous with dreamy landscapes and endearing character models, plus the music and sounds are fun to listen to. The controls work well enough, and the game is fairly challenging, even for seasoned platformer veterans. Le Parker: Sous Chef Extraordinaire is definitely one of the better games Ive picked up on iOS this year."

I'm trying to preserve my precious space but I decided to buy this anyway despite the file size. The game looks beautiful on my device. The screenshots don't do it justice

Sacre bleu! It requires iOS 10? Ah, that is very disappointing. I've had my eye on this for ages.

Are there any plans to lower the iOS requirement? Just asking... I'd miss Game Center if I had to update.

iOS 10...really? 🙄 Not interested currently unless the requirement is iOS 9. What a shame for such a beautiful platformer
