Retro-style game with golds, bricks and stickmen.

99 game levels and 99 user levels with Level Editor.

Three Game Modes: Time Mode, Hi-Score Mode and Time Mode for User Levels.

Adjusting game speed.

Five types of controller:

ACCELEROMETER. Tilt iPhone to run and use bottom keys to dig. You can calibrate accelerometer and adjust accelerometer sensitivity.

ON-SCREEN HIDDEN KEYS. Tap near edges of screen to run and use bottom keys to dig.

SWIPE CONTROLLER. Make directed swipes on screen to run and use bottom keys to dig. SWIPE PRO is the same.

KEYBOARD. Tap keys to run and dig. Tap UP/DOWN key to go down, to go up you must tap above it. Controller Smart Mode is enabled when ALWAYS RUN is ON.

KEYBOARD PRO. Tap keys to run and dig. Controller Smart Mode is enabled when ALWAYS RUN is ON.

To PAUSE tap top right corner of the screen.

Controller Smart Mode corrects wrong taps. It's switched on when KEYBOARD or KEYBOARD PRO and ALWAYS RUN is ON. For example when you play the game using KEYBOARD PRO if you try to dig when it's impossible, DIG command will be corrected to DOWN because DOWN button is between DIG buttons. if you press LEFT near ladder it will be corrected to UP because UP button is near LEFT button.

Gameplay:

You are a yellow player and must collect all the gold in a level while avoiding green guards who try to catch you. After collecting all the gold, you must travel to the top of the screen to reach the next level. You can dig holes into floors near your location to temporarily trap green guards and may safely walk atop them. Over time, floors dug into will regenerate, filling in these holes. A trapped guard who cannot escape a hole before it fills is consumed, immediately respawning in a random location at the top of the level. Floors may also contain tarp doors, through which you and green guards will fall, and solid blocks, through which you cannot dig.

There are 99 levels in the game which progressively challenge players' problem-solving abilities or reaction times. Levels feature a multi-floor, brick platform motif, with ladders and suspended hand-to-hand bars that offer multiple ways to travel throughout.

Looks perfect for this kind of game. Always loved the Lode-Runner games, so I may end up getting this.
