Difficult but awesome!
Like others on this forum, I sure would like the option of "easy, medium and hard. I love ole school platform games like this... but with this particular one you had better prepare yourself for a little frustration because if your timing is off you are going to lose quite often. At first I thought this game was too difficult to be enjoyable but now I just try and think of each level as a challenge to be taken one level at a time. Does anyone have suggestion for other good platformers for the iPhone? It dosn't necessarily have to be a Mario style game, suggestions for ANY good platform games would be greatly appreciated.
To the Dev(s): it's not often that I read in these reviews where ppl are giving thanks and praise because you truly listened/heard their suggestions. That alone deserves a 5 star rating... along with developing an awesome game of course! Thank U ;-) ~Shine~ Portland, OR
Fun but difficult: Updated
I've played some challenging platformers on my phone but this game is by the hardest. There's no option for easy, med or hard as it seems the very first level is brutal. I suggest adjusting the level of difficulty, having a guide to show a short tap means low jump and long tap means jumping higher. Also, please give the option of switching sides (jump on the right/shoot on the left). Overall, I like the game but I hope it can be adjusted
Update: Big thanks to the developer for listening. Before the update, I was able to finally beat the game and it was difficult but still very fun. Right now, I appreciate the mini directions in the beginning and the option to switch sides for jumping and shooting. Ill still keep replaying the game over and over to beat my best score. Thanks again
Excellent game, top notch controls, probably the most I've ever played an IOS game in one week! My only complaint is that someone has already hacked the 'times completed' leaderboard (which is lame for those of us who would be number 1 otherwise), and could you also add more leaderboards? It would be neat to have one for 'Least Rocks Thrown' or 'Least Enemies Killed'. Hopefully there will be no more hacks, it's pretty incredible to be number 1 on all the leaderboards (just got 0 deaths today!!!!!) except of course the 'times completed' board :(
Great game, definitely worth the dollar! Hope the sequel comes soon!!!
