I played a lot of games from Donut Games when I was a little kid, I repurchased 5 of their games including this one. The games are good, thank you for the experience.

Get this game!

Gold Miner Joe for the iPhone and iPod Touch was ported from the PC. In this game, you are Joe and your  job is to get the gold from the mines and fighting your way through the obstacles in your path (including an angry gorilla).

There are signposts with the "?" sign that guide you through the game, offering tips and advice so you won't get lost.

Game controls consist of swipe, flick and tap. Swiping generally gets you where you want to go, while flicking upwards helps you jump up easily. Tapping repeatedly releases stones that wipe out your enemies.

The absence of a d-pad maybe a problem to some as the reviews on the App Store have pointed out, but the game controls just need a bit of getting used to. And who doesn't want their platform game to be a bit more challenging?

Get it now! :-)
