Solid platformer marred by controls
It's so rare to get a solid platformer on iOS, that it's too bad this one was bungled with terrible controls. There are some good graphics and really classic gameplay, and definitely good level design. Too much is done with too few buttons, so that in the middle of a battle you end up spazzing out tons of moves without trying to, and it's far too easy to hit the wrong button constantly, but that's a problem with all touchpad games. The hitbox needs to be larger, so at least you press SOMETHING, though.
The basic movements, layouts, and enemies feel like an old-school NES game; you can abort a jump or change direction in midair at any time, dash like sonic or mega man x, and there are tons of secret areas you can jump to. Once you get a fairy, the challenge mostly evaporates though.
I also deeply dislike the fact that the game doesn't tell you that if you leave from the right side of the level, you advance without any score recorded. It should at least ask if you want to forfeit.
Very great game!
I think this game is fantastic. Lots of levels that are so action packed. I love it. Although a D-pad would be a nice toggleable feature.
