A thank you to this developer

I’m fast approaching my 40’s. I grew up during the golden eras of gaming. Lived, owned, and played though all the “retro” console generations. I adore gaming from that time, and games like this remind me of simpler times when you were home from school on a winter day with all your homework done playing through classic NES adventures. This little gem is a more forgiving version of Ghosts and Goblins. It’s very accessible and the controls are extremely tight. If you are afraid of touch controls for platformers, fear not! Very precise and accurate!
The pixel art is done extremely well. All the little monsters are nicely designed and unique. The levels feature the same love and attention to detail. The music is cheery and well done. The overall level design is simple but thought out. I feel like the developer pour his/her heart and soul into this game.
I wish iOS App Store was similar to the pre 64 bit upgrade where you could click on an game category and it shows ALL titles under the genre instead of the first 200 or so. Games like this sometimes get lost in the mix. I only noticed this SoX because it was recommended underneath a newer title. I had no idea this game existed.
No IAP. One time purchase. No scams or artificial difficulties to hamper a player. Good wholesome retro fun. Thank you!!

Buy this now. You won’t regret the purchase!

One of the best iOS games available!

I’ve been heavily playing iOS games for a decade, and this has to be one of my top 5 games so far.

If you enjoy platformers, nostalgic graphics, and a fun challenge then this game will be perfect for you. There’s plenty of difficult levels and plenty of rewards to be had. Do yourself a favor and spend the money. You won’t be disappointed.

Also... no IAP. No freemium. You have to beat this game the old fashioned way, by grinding it out and dying a bunch along the way :-)

Truly a hidden gem

Very polished, clever platformer with flavor (I like the voiceovers and character names, as well as the appearance of the enemies in particular). I opted to use an MFi controller, so I can attest that it is very well implemented and makes the game a delight to play. I am also playing on an iPad Pro, so I can attest to the fact that the game looks and sounds good on a larger screen.

I can't recall how I came across it, but am glad I did. It's a steal at a dollar with no ads or IAPs. Blessings to the developer for a delightful little adventure.
