Doves have taken roost in your prison and though you don’t know it they are the key to your survival.

Customer Reviews


Never felt the need to review a game until I found this one. Tight as can be controls, amazing 8 bit music and graphics that are very nostalgic of my Gameboy days. It makes you want to get better and beat due to its addicting yet fair game design. Bought this game on a wing and a prayer (no pun intended) and its easily the best phone game I've ever played, far superior to Flappy Bird. 5/5 would definitely recommend to any fan of old school video games.

Play Till Your Thumb Hurts

Really fun, hard, engaging game. True to what I would expect from Nitrome 4 years ago,(which in my opinion was a better time for them in terms of the games they were producing) with simple yet perfect control system. Great job, guys and gals!

Addictive, annoying, yet somehow very fun.

This game is like Nguyens' Flappy Bird, but on acid. I can't believe how addicting and fun this game is, I was stuck on level 5 and almost threw my iPad out my window. But I beat 5, and I literally had to force my self to stop playing and give a review.
