Comments & Reviews:
"Tap-Fu is done in the way I think all Platformers should follow. The lack of clunky onscreen buttons make this game really interactive and pleasurable. The artwork, storyline and effort are simply stunning." - Flickitty game developer
"A highly entertaining and addictive classic beat-em-up with a humorous twist, with cheery colorful graphics and some fancy kung-fu moves thrown in." - review by enuhski (http://enuhskigamesiphone.blogspot.com/)

Santa Hop - how high can Santa go?
What's New in Version 1.0.1
Added Minigames section featuring new Cloud Hop mode and 90 Second Survival
Added 2 new levels to Story mode
Added obstacles such as spiked gates, logs, shurikens, etc throughout Story levels and Arenas
Added difficulty mode (Easy, Medium, Hard)
Watch out! Ninjas now throw shurikens (which you can deflect)
Fixed minor bugs
What the game lacks in depth it makes up in style and fun
Every element of Tap-Fu has been lovingly polished: from the loading and save screens to the player death animations. The selection of brawlers in the App Store is very thin, but even if it weren't, this game would still stand out because of it's innovative swipe controls (buttons and dpad area also availablel but nowhere near as fun), rib-tickling storyline, and playful, well-executed graphics. The story mode is short, but a couple of survival modes keep you occupied till the developer releases already-promised new levels. Once these arrive I will be comfortable giving the game 5 stars.
It would have been a five but...
This game is great. Reminds me of one of my favorite fighting games, street fighter. But...one feature that should be added in an update is when you die and you have no more lives, the next time you play, you at least have full health. I just died and I now have to either start over or just keep dying over and over again. And I don't want to start over since I have gotten very far in the game. Please have an update with this suggestion soon so I can start playing this app again. Thanks if you take this review in consideration. :]
Best fighting app
Great game with action from the start and great sound effects. I love the slide to kick and tap to punch - much better than any virtual controls i have ever seen. Devs, please get rid of the cloud level from the main game, its good enough as a mini game separately. Other than that absolutely worth the price! Thanks :)
