The good: Really retro graphics and a moderately interesting platform premise.

The bad: The similarity of its name to another, better, much more well known game from back in the day. Imagine, I come into this thread thinking it was that game and then seeing this? I don't think so.

Bleh. The title had me thinking about the C64 game I played years ago by a very similar name, and this one got my hopes up. Ah well...

The name fooled me, too. But that does look pretty cool - I love how you can see future levels in the background.

Name threw me off, however this does look interesting.

I wonder if you create levels on the iPhone/touch or if you do it on a computer.

Everything is done on the iPhone! Creating, sharing, etc.

Really great game. Can't wait to see what kind of crazy level packs people make when this picks up some more interest.

Cool. Maybe I will grab this. I have few games that offer level creation/sharing but you have to create the levels on the computer.
