I dont know if I should love you or hate you for adding those dam collapsing blocks I hate them so much in platformers but they are so much fun at the same time I just have a bad habit for standing to long on them!

The game is alot of fun well worth the .99 for anyone who is interested. I did find a bug, the screen orientation does not seem to be working. Also do you plan on adding any more levels to the game?

I love this game. Actually I have been looking for a game like this. Great retro-visuals and sounds. I hooe that the Devs would make more games of this kind.
