Damn, i can see me spending a lot of time with this intriguing and holy challenging platformer...or is it only because i still fight these "super-difficult-to-get-used-to-wrap-my-brain-around-these-super-difficult-but-otherwise-good-working-controls"? *phew*

Just saying, i bought out quickly the ads for $1 and the ONE continue for another $3. Now i'm also able to take the chopper for free which takes me to the last level i was in. Otherwise you pay some coins you'll earn.

After each landing of our hero, he'll make an additional little step which leads quite often (yet) to an unwanted and a little bit cheap feeling death. One could say it's on the realistic side like that, but personaly i don't like it at all.
Another misscoding was, imho, to level up while playing with an animated screen blingbling, just to die the very next second due to that. Maybe this will get better because i'll get better with these controls...hmmmm

Pro: good one-handed controls, challenging, lots of different characters to unlock, each character seems to have a different level lay-out and difficulty, cute graphics and music.
Edit: not perfect but fast enough replay time

Contra: bad controls, the above mentioned landing/moving forward step, level up while e.g. in mid air

In any case, i'd say check it out if you like a real challenge. Do i scream for an another optional controls scheme...NO, but others will do. No doubt. And the rating will suffer because of that. No doubt. Pity.

Yeah i must admit i'm one of those people. Not keen on portrait platformers and i love on screen buttons (left/right/jump). Did give this a go but not for me sadly. Just didnt enjoy the way the controls worked. On screen controls work fine, dont know why we have to try and revolutionize them, if it ain't broke dont fix it!

Very polished, nice graphics/tune/sound effects. Just not keen on the controls - sorry !

I like it a lot. Bought the $3 remove-ads, free continues, all heroes pop-up pack. I'd have rather not unlocked all the heroes, but it was cheaper than piecemeal for the other two. Sort of devalues currency, but having challenges for each character helps a lot.
