Customer Reviews

Love it!

Let me start off by saying this: This game is astoundingly well presented and executed. The graphics are very nice and well done, giving a sort of throwback feel when your playing. I found the spritework to be very awesome. The controls are very simple and easy to learn. The story, although very limited, sets a nice backdrop to your escapes. The banter before each escape (especially the Minigore temple) brings humorous fun to the game. Overall this is a great game. To anyone who is on the edge about purchasing this or not, I say go ahead and get it.

P.S. to anyone who is wondering there are thirty-six levels each of which have their own secrets to find. Openfeint highscoreboards and times are there (sadly no Gamecenter) to add replay value and motivation to do better. There is a huge multitude of hats and upgrades to buy. The two characters that are blanked out at the bottom (other than Gunny) require an extra $0.99 purchase (each) to unlock.

iOS 11 killed this game

I’m pretty sure there will be no update for this game in the future. And with iOS 11, 32-bit app support is gone, rendering this game unplayable unless you roll back to version 10.3

This is one of the greatest paid mobile games ever. Easy to learn, but hard to master and the final levels require true hooking expertise! But alas, there is no sequel, and there is no equal or greater game of this type. I hope the developers decide upon some miracle to update this amazing game, but I know it’s pretty much gone. This era of games (just before micro-transactions became huge) is gone.

Sad days. Very sad days

Yaaaay, Retina Display support!!

Finally! I love this game but it (previously) looked so blurry that I was reluctant to play it at most times, but now it's perfect!

Oh, and as for the content of the game... that generally tends to be important, right? Yeah. It's amazing. If you're still sitting there thinking about buying this game, just click on the buy button. Just do it.

... Seriously.
