1-bit Ninja is pure run + jump fun unlike anything else on the App Store. The stylized 2D side-scrolling world can be dragged into 3D at any point to reveal hidden paths. Built from the ground up for touch screen control that rivals 'real buttons', 1-bit Ninja sacrifices a back button in the name of precise control you don't ever have to think about.
Need to move in the opposite direction? There's a spring or platform for that!

* stylized 1-bit engine mixes 2D & 3D
* simple 2 touch control for jump-precision
* classic head-bouncing, run + jump gameplay
* hiscores & best times
* save & watch replays of your best runs
* export replays as video for YouTube
* 5 worlds, 25 levels & over 125 challenges
* Custom practice-checkpoints
* Game Center leaderboards & achievements
* secrets & easter eggs
* unlockable camera modes inc. red/cyan 3D
* original chip-tune sound track

FINALLY! congrats kode80, it's been quite a wait (at least it feels like), but I can't wait to play.

also, thanks a lot for including controls for us leftys. Not many devs think of our 10% of the population

This game made me sign up here cuz i was hoping we already have it in the taiwanese appstore. well. seems like we all have to wait a bit longer. but if its only half as good as it looks like in the videos this will be my no1 platformer on the iOS!
