What's New in Version 1.60
-Added retina screen support for compatible devices! View the ruins in crystal clarity!
-Added a Flip Screen button to the settings menu.
-Game should now run in the background properly on applicable devices.
-Updated in-game OpenFeint version.
-Updated in-game news catalog.
Let me start off by saying this: This game is astoundingly well presented and executed. The graphics are very nice and well done, giving a sort of throwback feel when your playing. I found the spritework to be very awesome. The controls are very simple and easy to learn. The story, although very limited, sets a nice backdrop to your escapes. The banter before each escape (especially the Minigore temple) brings humorous fun to the game. Overall this is a great game. To anyone who is on the edge about purchasing this or not, I say go ahead and get it.
P.S. to anyone who is wondering there are thirty-six levels each of which have their own secrets to find. Openfeint highscoreboards and times are there (sadly no Gamecenter) to add replay value and motivation to do better. There is a huge multitude of hats and upgrades to buy. The two characters that are blanked out at the bottom (other than Gunny) require an extra $0.99 purchase (each) to unlock.
Yaaaay, Retina Display support!!
Finally! I love this game but it (previously) looked so blurry that I was reluctant to play it at most times, but now it's perfect!
Oh, and as for the content of the game... that generally tends to be important, right? Yeah. It's amazing. If you're still sitting there thinking about buying this game, just click on the buy button. Just do it.
Fun fun fun
-Retro style graphics
-Simple and addicting gameplay
-Lots of humorous text, both during levels and at the shop(item descriptions)
-Can be annoyingly challenging at times
-Some may consider $3 a little steep compared to the other simple/addictive games(angry birds, fruit ninja, etc) that only cost a third of the price in the app store
Very addicting and humorous, worth $3 in my opinion and as long as you aren't stingy with your gold and buy all the upgrades available, levels shouldn't be overly difficult.
