Definitely a must buy game

Awesome rogue like game. Remind me of a rouge Zelda. You can tell hard work was put into the game. Very happy with purchase. Thanks to the Developers for this. Super fun game. I highly recommend anyone to buy it. If you haven’t better do it on sale to get it at a nice price. Even without a discount the game is worth a easy $7-$8. If you don’t own it in your game library on IOS you will definitely be happy. Thanks again to the developers.

Birk's Adventure

Yay!!!! Another Metroidvania title from Donut Games!!! However, this one seems quite a bit different than Traps N Gemstones.
The controls and physics/handling is spot on, as we've all come to expect from DG. The developers have also made it so that quickly tapping the jump button will let you micro-jump and holding down the jump button will allow you to jump higher, and it's been done PERFECTLY.
The game is fairly big (once you take into consideration all of the doors/'levels' you'll be making your way through). There's one large over-world type area that loops around (once you make it all the way to the right side of the map, you'll eventually wind up on the left side that's furthest away from your starting point) that contains a couple of castles and some underwater areas.
Throughout this large over-world, you'll be able to collect items, visit shops, upgrade your character and search for keys. These keys can be used to open the locked doors that you'll find scattered all over the place. Inside of each door is a smaller area (level) that you'll be able to explore and find even more items!
It's one great big exploration + platforming adventure! And yes, there's TONS of platforming to experience!
You're able to dispatch enemies by slashing them with your sword or - for most of them: the ones that don't have spikes or spiky helmets anyway - by jumping on them. They've also added the well-known boost that a lot of other platform games use where you can hold down the jump button while landing on an enemy and jump even higher than usual!
At the beginning of the game, it is one-hit=death, but it's fairly forgiving. You'll be tossed back to where you first entered the screen/segment (as the over-world and levels are all artificially broken up into different segments that you'll 'slide' into) and loose a few of your coins. But it's almost always no worse than loosing out on maybe 15-20 seconds of progress, AND, all of the items you grabbed and enemies you sent packing will reset as well, so you'll be able to grab that bomb you needed or use enemies to boost-jump and reach higher up areas again without any issue.

I'm not too far into the game yet (it keeps track of the percentage you've completed and right now I'm only at 27%, and that took me about 60 minutes, so a rough estimate from a 'typical' gamer would be about 4:30-5 hours of gameplay, so long as things don't get TOO difficult moving forward), but this is yet another HUGE winner from Donut Games! Actually, there's a pretty big chance that it'll end up in my top 5, if not 3, favorite games from DG! It's THAT good! So, if you're a platforming/Metroidvania/puzzle-platformer fanatic; don't skip out on this one!
