Just bought the game yesterday and beat the game today. Even at $0.99, I don't think it's worth it. Sword of Xolan is the same price, and definitely worth it's weight in gold. It's an OK game for someone looking for a little time to kill, but if you want to be immersed in an adventure, this is not it.

-cool retro background music
-controls not cluttered on the screen
-various levels of difficulties
-Game Center achievements
-time trial for the brave and quick
-hidden pathways for finding fruit treasures

-frame lags, crashes, and freezes, especially in the level before the boss (running from 6+)
-short (one of those quick games to pass by time)
-boss level too easy
-getting hit makes character jump 3 feet back (this is especially hard if you get hit near the lava by bats when getting the key for the boss door)
-momentum causes landing (from jumping) to not be accurate so you must control the character if jumping between ledges
-a bug where if a character goes near the furthest corner of the ledge, he is stuck there and can't move

I only got 2 of the 4 fruits. I didn't bother trying to find the rest because the game kept crashing/freezing when I died.

I had better expectations for this game. I hope they fixed the freezing/lags.

Awesome Game! Please Support This!


I'm always looking for games that remind me of Zelda, as I am a huge LoZ fan, but rarely do I see anything as close to home as Tiny DD was! Although it was short, it was also cheap. So that makes me think of how awesome it would be is Adventure Islands took a bit more time and make a larger sequel to this game! That would be AWESOME!!! I would totally buy a game like that for a higher price; even pay in-app purchases to go to new dungeons! (I've never payed in-app purchases so far) So please but this cheap game and enjoy the crap out of it like I did!! ^_^



Ok everything was working great: BEAUTIFUL GAME, until I was killed by an arrow midair (like game over killed) THEN everything went down hill! Whenever I reached game over it would freeze (music still playing) and I would have to reset the game. Also, the framerate became terrible and the music is all choppy. I have no idea how to fix this or if it's just my phone (btw got this phone a week ago so probably not) fix this asap!!!!!
