Nice retro-style graphics and music, and a very tough game that calls you on to one more try.
All you do is jump or throw rocks to kill enemies. The game always has you running right. People mention Mario. This game reminds me most of Wonder Boy on Master System - imagine you're Wonder Boy on a skateboard where the game scrolls automatically and you throw your little axes. Even the music is very sega-inspired.
Worth a punt definitely. It gets very tricky, especially if you want to perfect very level, but the game compels you to keep trying.
Good but missing features
Great graphics. nice gameplay and idea. Bad controls. No proper tutorial. Sprint and throw same button!? Need to get all coins for next level... Why? Should let you get to next level if over X coins. Gets frustrating with the controls and which often gets you killed. Little update to sort these and it'll be a 5 star :)
Gorgeous to look at and play
Saw a review on App Spy and bought it straight after.
Tap the left of the screen to jump and the right of the screen to shoot and run(just like in the Mario games).
The graphics and music are lovely and there's lots of variety. It's addictive and replaying when you die is quick and encourages that just-one-more-go feeling.
You don't need all the coins to progress(I rarely get all coins on a stage!).
Give it a go. You'll be glad you did.
