Sweet game.
It's one of the get-as-high-as-you can platformers of the Doodle Jump family.
The style reminds me of Polar Peril. But the controls are far better. I really love the sounds and music (like a dream). Animation is also nice. You jump higher by toughing different obstacles, some of them give you boost which you can activate later to prevent you of falling down.

The only critic I would have. The game is way too easy, or in other words, one gaming session takes way too long, since there are too many "platforms" on the screen, so it's really hard to miss... But I guess, it's also a game for children, so I could understand why you chose this level of difficulty.

But style-wise, it's 100% Matmi quality!

The return of 'addictive' word.

'Simple yet addictive gameplay'
and
'Simple to learn yet hard to master'
were two of the most commonly used phrased several months ago.

The game has a global high score and also a facebook high score.

The game increases in difficulty the higher you get. Our top score is 170,000 but that was really hard as it became so difficult.

We say th egame is addictive because all our testers could not stop playing. My girlfriend constantly takes my phone and plays it.

Enjoy

Damn, I'm hooked!!
Now this title adds a lot of strategy, since you can boost your scores with bonus candy for which you must collect other objects of the same colour. And it's really important to collect as many boosts as possible. They will help you later on. I'm nr. 3 right now and I guess, the other 2 are beta testers

Bye the way, since one session can take REALLY long, you should be able to resume after getting a call.

But congrats. A fantastic season game without being seasonal

EDIT: currently nr. 2

Thanks for your kind words. After making pinball we wanted to make something with a wider appeal. I am really pleased with the game

I would also like a resume funtion, we may put that in a update as we did not have time before submission.

Enjoy. Looking forwward to seeing some good scores

I am just in the process of making a video. Should be up tomorrow.

Apple approved the app in record time so we were not ready!

Have fun.
