Jack runs automatically, when he runs against the wall he turns and runs in the opposite direction. Tap the screen and he jumps. The goal is to reach Jill. It seems like the collected coins are your score, there's no shop or something like that. I only played 7 levels but it's a fun game. Seems like all 60 levels are free, there's a permanent add banner on the top of the screen but you won't notice it at all. But there's also a option to remove the ads. Recommended !

So glad you created this thread Sanuku/Sink ! Would have totally missed this otherwise

I'm not normally into one button 'platformers' but this is great. Brilliant old skool original Gameboy graphics, played a few levels, starts off very easy but looking forward to playing many more later.

A great small filesize, free to try and 69p (99c) to get rid of the ad's. Games like this should be supported so dont be cheap and try all the levels with the ad's running at the top !

Great retro chiptune and graphics, no brainer this one. Looking forward to the later levels

Started playing this last night and there really is no reason not to grab this. Awesome fun and for free with a buck to get rid of a tiny little banner that I don't really notice. Starting to get more challenging too. Thanks Sink for the recommendation!

Yes, a very cute and well-done platformer. Played through the first two worlds and I can say it gets harder and harder as you progress. Every few levels new mechanics are introduced, which keep the game fresh and challenging.

Very nice retro game. Gets fairly challenging as you go. Love the old school graphics. Went ahead and paid to remove the ads. Would be nice if they added some achievements via Game Center to go along with the already included leaderboards. Definately easy to recommend this one especially since its free anyway...

Short levels and new features added as you progress, makes this an easy game to keep playing. There's an unobtrusive advert, which is fair enough in a free game, but hardly noticed it. Glad I downloaded.

This is surprisingly good. Controls and response are spot on and the level design is fantastic. Up there with Mikey Shorts/Hooks in terms of glitchy platformers.

Just be prepared to experiment and die...a lot, trying to buzz through the levels

Just hope the dev has more levels in store...even through IAP, whatever it takes!
