retro goodness

K Greene

It's nice to see a retro game that actually uses iphone controls effectively!

You can get into the game easily and yet still be challenged as you reach higher levels. It's a good mix of old school arcade and modern design. I especially love getting the eating effect and somehow very satisfying!

I also like how you can just pick it up and play when you have a few minutes free...though I often find myself saying "just one more level!" :-)

Cute Penguins


I play very few games, but let's face it, penguins are cute. At first it looked very retro, but I found myself wanting to go to the next level to see what will happen next. Next thing I knew, I had only a few minutes to get to my appointment. A very fun game that grows on you with every level. I am looking forward to new and exciting updates.

challenging game, I will beat it eventually...


Nice one... This game takes me back to hanging out at the arcade and plugging quarters into a machine until I ran out. It's hard at the upper levels, and I look forward to beating the game. It's mean/unfair at times, and games used to be that way. You are supposed to have a love/hate relationship with the game. I WILL beat this game soon, I will !
