App description: Experience a fast-paced, procedural ultra-retro skill game that could just as well date back to 1977!
Not only was that the birth year of the creator of this app, but also the iconic Atari VCS (Atari 2600) was born back then. Let this game take you back to the golden age of video games, combining 1-bit sprites, scanline graphics and oscillator sounds with an addictive Game Center challenge.

Legions of monsters have conquered the island of Harry Helix! Use his spring legs and his propeller backpack to escape from the strange villains.

- Easy One-Touch-Action: Simply touch the screen to accelerate. Go fast for higher scores, but beware of dangerous obstacles!

- Procedural landscapes: The vast game world is generated procedurally and not randomly - so you can memorize tricky passages and where to speed up carelessly!

- Unlock persistent bonus rockets: Use them to skip landscapes - or save them to break away from dangerous situations.

Jump in and relive those fond childhood memories!

Supports Game Center and Retina Display Resolution.

*** Featured as "NEW AND NOTEWORTHY" in the games category in over 80 stores around the world! ***

- Rated 4.5 out of 5 by Gamezebo:
"Panic Springs is an intense, fast-paced side-scroller that would easily fit in with the leisure suits and feathered hairdos of yesteryear. But with its timelessly addictive gameplay and in-demand retro presentation, it fits in just fine in the twenty-first century, too"
