OPEN FEINT NOW AVAILABLE!!! Thanks for your comments! We are working to make Omino way better!

Anyone who enjoys old-school platformer action should give this one a try

Games like Omino are a rarity on the iPhone, and I can't understand why
There's plenty of action, plenty of powerups...

It has bright artwork, great and responsive controls

Really nice looking game and features bright, pixelated environments and characters that really do take you back to old-school 16-bit platform games

IMPORTANT: For those that are having difficulty figuring out how to pass the "big jump" in the second level, please check out our gameplay on the website or on youtube at the link below.
Hint: It requires a Blu Drop. Check out all the blu/red boxes before the jump.

Ok so downloaded it cause I liked the retro look and so far I really like it. It's a little hard to get used to the movements of your character, he moves really fast.

You stated that this is a classic, but I can't find any info on the web about the game. What system was it on that makes it a classic?

The power ups may need a little explanation. It took me a while to figure out when I'm blue I can walk on water.

Otherwise great game. Thanks!

*I am assuming you are the developer as I have addressed the questions as such.

It's not a classic. It's retro inspired, goimot must have misread the first sentence in the mad dash to create a thread for it

Grongrats to the front site article.
Here are my two cents.

Tried the 2 test levels, immediately purchased the full game. It gets challenging quickly. What I really LOVE: the ultra-tight controls – to me the best controls of any platformer on the idevices. Just quick and spot-on. It's always your fault, if you die.

But I would love to see a bit more polish. The music is a bit too basic for my retro taste. And the style could get some changes here and there. I don't like the style of all these 2-colored boxed. Isn't that beautiful. Besides that, it's really fun to play.

Bought the DLC before Apple removes it... I think the game could use bigger buttons and a better looking control pad, something like this.

Why exactly should Apple remove this? This is stupid.

Bought it. very crisp controls make this a great game, and of course the occasional similarities to a certain SNES game don't hurt either

I also fell in love with the game the moment I saw it. Bought, I'm currently on level 3-2. I agree with the robot - a little more polish here and there wouldn't hurt.

A little trivia: "omino" in italian means "small man", and it's a way many people here generically refer to videogames characters, especially if they are small cute characters like this one.
