What's New in Version 1.0.4
When resuming your game, you will restart from the last checkpoint instead of restarting at the beginning of the level.
Fun game but awful controls and too expensive
This is an awesome game whose concept is just like that of Super Mario but in 3D and with a magician instead. The gameplay is fun, but the CONTROLS ARE HORRIBLE!!! WORST CONTROLS EVER!!! They worked fine in the free version, so I bought it obviously assuming it would be the same without a problem, not even thinking about it. But no??? What the heck??? Whenever you try to jump, you always fall down. You can still move, but with unease because controls are jerky and hard. Please make an update and fix the controls. I paid 5 bucks for this game, when it should have stayed at 99 cents after hearing from other people that they bought it two years ago at that price!!!
If controls were bad at 99 cents, I'd still be mad but not as much as I am right now. If you are going to have bad controls, the least you could do is not raise the price to 5 bucks and make the controls bad in the free version so we know not to buy the full version until you fix them, or just fix the controls and maybe keep it at 5. That would be SOMEWHAT understandable. But regardless of controls, the price should stay at 99 cents and never move up higher than that. Not worth complaining about now since I already bought it, but just thought I'd point that out. But still fix controls please, in an update, and make it fast!!! I swear, this is ridiculous and unacceptable.
Great great platformer! It was sort of like a mix between Mario and Rayman. Graphics were good, the amount of enemies was good, the platforming elements were great, especially the gravity shifting portions. The controlls were nice and responsive, and there was no lag at all. No frame skips. And the story line isn't that bad... Most are pretty cheesy... But at least there were no grammar problems.=oP
I got this when it was on sale, so thank you!!!! I'm still not finished with the game... I just made it into the inner castle... Wooo! I really don't know if I'd pay for this app at full price... Other reviewers have been saying they can't get to the last boss... And have collected all stars... It'd be a shame to get to the end and never finish... If I make it through the entire game I'll take this out of my review... But as it stands now... It's a 5 star app, and in the top five platformers out of some 50 or so I've got on my device.
---here's hoping I get the chance to update this review with some good news!
Like others have said...
The game is a lot of fun and definately worth a few $$. The's a lot of variety with the different worlds and power ups. Most of the levels aren't very difficult, but the controls can be very frustrating. Judging by the other reviews, I'm not the only one having these problems. The d-pad is finicky, and the character ends up doing a ground pound when you don't want it. Also some issues with jumping and lag. The appearence of the controls is also very obtrusive, taking up much of the small screen. They could have at least made them semi transparent, and maybe eliminated at least one ( like tapping on a door to go through it instead of having another button for it). I certainly hope we see an update in the near future that addresses these issues.
