App description: A new year's gift from us !
Giana Sisters for a special price on all Apple platforms until the 23.1. (including that day)

More than 20 years ago Armin Gessert developed with GIANA SISTERS one of the first Jump'n'Run games for the Commodore C64 - the console manufacturers got anxious - one of them tried to stop the sisters and the end seemed close. But you might say when idols die then legends are born ! As in this case. C64, Amiga, Amstrad and Atari ST Gamer honor GIANA SISTERS and an original game with packaging has become a rare collector's item.

The legend is back, better and bigger than ever before. Four years after the successful mobile phone version the GIANA SISTERS celebrate their arrival in the new millenium as an iPad App, without loosing their 80s charm. We have improved the graphics of the levels from the iPhone especially for the iPad, and the game was expanded to accommodate the additional requirements and options of the iPad. Thus, the GIANA SISTERS HD app now features captivating HD graphics, freely movable buttons, and much more.

The newly polished 32 classic levels from the old days should result in hear palpitation and teary-eyes for real enthusiasts. Even though GIANA SISTERS has been polished off from its decade old dust, now it goes strong with the known style, legendary sound and all classic features. Jump deep into the Giana world with 80 new adventures. Choose between classic or touch control as well as several new features.

GIANA SISTERS provides you with fun for your iPad that lasts for hours !

- 80 new levels
- 32 retro levels
- completely new graphic set especially for the iPad
- 2 controls (touch and classic)
- iPod connection - play your own music while you play GIANA SISTERS
- 5 languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Italian
- legendary soundtrack, inspired by Chris Huelsbeck
- Online community tools

Hello everyone,

Giana Sisters HD is now available on the App store. We are sorry about the delay but we had to remove the version last week due to an error.

I hope you all enjoy it and let me know what you think.

I've just bought the game again having enjoyed the iPhone version. Is it me or does the game seem to run at a slower clip, it just feels a tad off on the responsive side when jumping. It feels a tad less manic than the iphone version. Perhaps this is accentuated by the bigger screen but was hoping for smoother gameplay, as it stands I think I prefer playing the iPhone version (which I played on 3rd gen ipod touch) Also, the first time I loaded it up it crashed right after the Jewel drop right at the beginning but no crashing probs since.

just bought it and played the first 4 levels.
for me the control buttons are not in the ideal position for my hands!
can you update the game with a custom button setup so we can move the buttons around to our own preferences?
many games have that option now.

btw great game!


EDIT: just found out that the option is already included!

I loved the iPhone version and I have been waiting for the iPad version.

Overall, I am impressed by the iPad version but so far I have not noticed a huge difference. However, this is easily worth the price IMO.

Couple of points...

The starting controls are horrible and I can't imagine them working for very many people. I would suggest changing the location of the button layout for people that are new to the game. Having played the iPhone version, I knew how to move the controls around but I can assure you some people will miss this. The reason is, when you go into controls, it looks like you can just keep what you have or switch to swipe, a lot of people will miss that you have to hit the other button. Maybe put some wording by that button that states thAt you can customize your controls.

Also, I noticed either a little slow down or maybe it was lower frame rates from time to time. Seems like there were a few times when the gameplay was not as smooth.

Ok, I understand. Your shop did not update yet. Could you put me this on private message as well ?

Hi Nico! Good to see this released. Are there any new material in it? Like new levels, new enemies, new soundtracks etc?
