Customer Reviews

Very fun

This is a wonderfully fun platformer. The virtual button controls work very well, and control feels very precise and fast paced. The levels are so fun that I often like repeating them a bunch of times just for fun, which I rarely want to do with other platformer games. Great visuals and sound too.

The only flaw is the sound stops working once in a while. Also, not a bug, but I wish it kept track of your best time for each level. It shows your time at the end of a level, and the game really seems to encourage seeing how fast you can go, so it's strange that it doesn't keep a record.

Just WOW

I love platformers ( I can't spell). They are great from Mario to rayman to vector to supermeat boy( I actually haven't played supermeatboy yet) anyways this game has me amazed at 1 thing: fluidness. Now how does that apply to a platformer? Glad you asked fluidness is how silky smooth a game connects and flows, and this game is on top of my fluidness meter 10 out of 10. I have never felt so in control and at the same time out of control as I just miss a collectable or get behind the time to beat. If you read all that good job. Get this game now! Good work crescent moon!

Way too short

It's really fun and I'm glad I bought it but I beat it in a matter of hours. The PC version is getting way more in the game which makes me mad when this is the first version and it's not really complete. It needs the level editor that the PC is getting and maybe an endless survival mode? The pvp would be awesome too I'm disappointed I had to pay though for something that took me a few hours. If you don't mind shelling out a couple of bucks though for something quick and fun then this game is for you. It left me wanting more though which is good.
