Experience a fast-paced, procedural ultra-retro skill game that could just as well date back to 1977!
Not only was that the birth year of the creator of this app, but also the iconic Atari VCS (Atari 2600) was born back then. Let this game take you back to the golden age of video games, combining 1-bit sprites, scanline graphics and oscillator sounds with an addictive Game Center challenge.

Legions of monsters have conquered the island of Harry Helix! Use his spring legs and his propeller backpack to escape from the strange villains.

- Easy One-Touch-Action: Simply touch the screen to accelerate. Go fast for higher scores, but beware of dangerous obstacles!

- Procedural landscapes: The vast game world is generated procedurally and not randomly - so you can memorize tricky passages and where to speed up carelessly!

- Unlock persistent bonus rockets: Use them to skip landscapes - or save them to break away from dangerous situations.

Jump in and relive those fond childhood memories!

Supports Game Center and Retina Display Resolution.

- Rated 4.5 out of 5 by Gamezebo:
"Panic Springs is an intense, fast-paced side-scroller that would easily fit in with the leisure suits and feathered hairdos of yesteryear. But with its timelessly addictive gameplay and in-demand retro presentation, it fits in just fine in the twenty-first century, too"

Great homage to Atari 2600 games

Super fun game.

Great game

Lots of games aim for a retro feel, but this game has it. Reminds me of "Spike Dislike", but I like this more. I wish Atari games had controlled this smooth.

Oh yeah, and my 4-year-old likes this too. "I want to play my springy game!"

Oh yeahX2: the music is great!

Update: the game keeps asking me to rate it 5 stars, even though I already have. I've pushed all 3 buttons numerous times.

And one small suggestion--change the scoring so each enemy you bounce off the head of/coin you collect without touching the ground gives you incremental points--kill 1 enemy, get 100 points->land on another one, get 200 points->hit a 3rd one, get 300 points->miss the next one and touch the ground, the counter starts over

Update: thanks for the great update! Blue coins work great! And thanks for fixing the '2nd rocket' problem (no, I wasn't tapping twice...it happened every single time )

Next glitch to fix: every now and then I start a game and after a while the trampolines stop working (just bounce as normal) and I just fall through enemies without bouncing up (although they do die and I do get the points). This glitch has been happening much more often since the blue coins (which are awesome, by the way)

Thanks for continuing to develop this great game!

Almost like a lost atari game

This game is great, and I really hope they make more games in this style. the graphics really feel like an old atari game (besides the gradients, which actually look pretty good regardless of historical accuracy).

Its similar to other jumping games, but the style makes it more fun to play. The only problem i have is... The physics of the game aren't a perfect match with the pixel graphics. The character doesn't really feel like he's sticking to the ground when he lands... Or something. Uh... But its still worth a download, I think.
