Customer Reviews

New control method = great game. Thanks.

The inclusion of a proper default control method -[ virtual pad + buttons ]- has made a massive improvement to this game.
It's still hard, an old Amiga platformer was never going to be an easy game, was it? However, it is now FUN with a good control method.
Thanks to Mobile Amusements for listening and improving this game!

WOW Retro heaven! :)

Really well made and takes me right back to the Amiga version. A+++++


Reminded me of the classic sega games. Good fun:)
