Looking for a game.

It was some simple 2D game. I forgot everything about it (name, icon, etc.). I think the art style was pixel art though, but I'm not sure. Anyway... It was a sidescroller, with like buttons on the floor. You could move only left and right and had an action button, and if you triggered a specific button on the floor another ability would replace the old one.
Example: you had a jump ability, then you triggered a button which gave you a fight ability etc.

Help appreciated

If you downloaded it previously you can look under your purchases game history and might be able to find it that way.

Do you remember anything more about the art style other than it was pixel art? Was this a traditional platformer, endless runner, or timed/puzzle?

I think it was a traditional platformer.

I'm confident that there were no puzzles (or anything alike, but can't say for sure, since I didn't play the game to the end).

Spellsword is a platformer with pixel graphics and spells you aquire that change abilities but I do not think that is it.

Yeah that's the vaguest description ever, I'd be amazed if you found any help with that description. Just check your purchase history and find it there

It wasn't on my device...

Yes, I know it's a really vague description, but not many games use such mechanics. So if you played the game I'm pretty sure you'd remember it.

I've played many games with a single multi-contextual button, but I've got thousands and thousands of apps, it's difficult to narrow it down with that description. You can go onto your computer and look at your itunes purchase history though, if you have ever owned the game, it'll be on there in chronological order. I know that's likely not much help, but it's a good place to start. Good luck, if anything springs to mind, I'll report back here.

Do you remember an approximate release timeframe?

Also, consider searching Touch Arcade for elements in your description. For example, maybe there is a list of "platformer" recommendations that will jog your memory.

What did the icon look like?
