The Story of Major Magnet

With an insanely funny set of characters, including loyal sidekick Gus the Guinea Pig, Major Magnet's off to save the world from Colonel Lastin, without even realizing it. Sometimes a hero can come from anyone, especially if they have a magnet to help them out. All he wants is his yellow cape back!

Gone are the days of playing a game where you just run around, stomping on mushrooms this is magnetic gameplay! Tap a magnet, swing and shoot the Major to race through each level. It's as innovative as it sounds and incredibly fun to master.

Could you remove the [Universal] from the Thread Title. I was a bit to fast with adding it because the current Build isn`t yet it. Thanks.

Fixed.

Well, I can only hope this does indeed go universal. Really been looking forward to this and I must say I'm quite shocked that it ended up being iPhone-only. Anyways, bought. *crosses fingers for a universal build*

Yeah, odd. Don't let that stop you from checking it out though. The game's awesome, it's not that bad in 2X and due to the nature of the controls, works perfectly fine.

No evident IAPs, by the way.

Both are solid so I guess you should choose whichever you want to play. Since both are different Genres you really can`t go wrong with any of those.

This looks so good I may break my personal rule of no iPhone specific games on my iPad for it! I saw mention of a universal build perhaps in the works... How soon would that land if so? I made this exception to my rule for Vergence as it has a universal update coming in a few weeks and would be willing to do the same for this potential gem if a universal build is around the corner!
