Thanks for posting this. We are pleased to announce the availability of Babylonian Twins HD. The iPhone version will be available on the app store anytime.

We love platform games, especially puzzle platformers of the old days. Games that inspired the creation of the Amiga version of this game include: Superfrog and Lost Vikings on the Amiga and Konami's Maze of Galious on the MSX. This game combines fast action and puzzle solving in a unique two character gameplay.

We look at this release as the foundataion of the best puzzle platformer on the iDevices. Please feel free to post your feedback on this forum or directly to us at www.babyloniantwins.com/contact, your voice and support will help us shape future updates of the game.

Just got it a little while ago due to the price. Pretty good. Only complaint so far is that I wish on the iPad there was a button, maybe below the d-pad, that switches between the twins...I'm sure it's fine on the iPhone, but on the iPad it's a little bit more of a stretch. Would just be much easier if there was a button to switch characters closer to one of the thumbs, also for entering doors wouldn't be too bad either.

Thanks for your feedback.

You don't need to press all the way up on the corner to switch characters, just press anywhere above the dpad, that is basically all the upper left corner of the screen.
Same for the doors, you can press anywhere in the middle of the screen to enter doors. But you might be right that it is bit far from the finger.

I think in general having too many buttons will clutter the screen. I will wait for more feedback from users and then decide what is the best way to go.

Thanks again.

Hi,

Sales happen, just the nature of business in the appstore.

If the game was worth the price you paid, then why complain, you got your value.
