***Reviews***
"Overall, Ready Action is a great platform game, and offers many exciting levels. You are sure to enjoy jumping and attacking your way past enemies for hours. For $1.99 it is great game to add to your iPhone." - AppAdvice.com

"Vibrant cartoonish parodies / The cartoonish designs are fantastic and the animations remain smooth throughout." - AppSpy.com

"Imagine my surprise while I was playing Ready Action! ($1.99) and found myself enjoying myself thoroughly and reminiscing about my childhood playing Mega-Man, Little Nemo, and a slew of other 8-bit platformers. This really is a very well-executed design with pleasantly nostalgic gameplay." - Qwertyhub.com

'Ready Action' is a legitimacy Platformer game.
Game starts with hero 'Jimmy', who wants to be an actor, joining a poor studio.
Poor studio has not enough money for film, so Jimmy need to shoot many scene in 30sec!
And Jimmy has to play a multiple role, shooting while changing various costumes.
Now, we have 3 parody themes, 65 stages.
Plz help our poor Jimmy to become an actor!:)

2) Game Object

Corrected that for you . I personally think it looks awesome, and the mashing up of Viewtiful Joe and Half-Minute hero is pretty brilliant. But yeah, I hope the gameplay's good, too.

Looks like 2 hours worth of shovelware. Oh well, I work on Bay Street and make $400 an hour. No problem here.

Game Impressions

The biggest thing this game has going for it is the somewhat unique concept. Yes, in a way it's still a mish-mash of well-worn ideas, but the whole manages to feel more unique than the sum of its parts, and that's an achievement.

There is a definite, pervasive sense of fun about the whole thing. (In a very Japanese way.) Which is also a good thing. The game manages to feel like an experience you want to see to its conclusion at least once.

Technically though, is where for me things feel a bit flat. Not to any game-breaking point by any means; not even close; it's just with the creative side setting the bar so high I can't help wishing it were matched technically as well. Make this game run at 60 FPS and it would truly be a joy to play. As it is though, the frame rate and scrolling are just jerky enough to be noticeable and get in the way of a great experience.
