What's New in Version 1.2
Fixes the "no run" bug on certain devices
This game really gave me that SNES vibe with a hint of modern doujin soft. Haruneko has a good understanding of how Japanese platformer physics work. From the way Akane clings to walls, to the timing and weight of her jumps, is dead on. She even builds up inertia when she runs. Everything is responsive and instant. It just feels right.
I felt that the life bar is a bit too long and scrolls and power up items were placed a bit randomly in some levels. But none of this took away from the fun I was having.
This is just a really solid platformer with good controls, with or without the iCade. I really hope to see another game starring Akane in the future.
They must have old-school fighter/platformer
This game looks excellent, plays excellent and with the Icade mobile controls excellent! This game really really is a lot of fun. It was well worth the couple of dollars I spent and right now being that it is free, I wouldn't even consider missing out on the opportunity to play this game again. If you are an Icade mobile controller owner, it enhances the gameplay tenfold And this is one of the top five best games compatible with it! Download this game right now and enjoy one of the best platform is on the iOS market!
Awful onscreen D-pad
Am I doing something wrong here?
Sexed-up icon aside, the game has a nice retro style to it, and looked like it was going to be fun, but I found it unplayable with the onscreen D-pad on a 5th gen iPod Touch. It was unresponsive and nearly impossible to get her to do what I wanted with the thing, and if there's anything you need in an old-school platformer, it's good control.
But there area lot of 5-star reviews here. Are people using sticks to play, or are my thumbs just fat or something?
