Easily the most complete platformer for IOs

It’s hard to believe I hadn’t heard of this game prior to stumbling upon it. If you want a complete side-scrolling action hame similar to mega-man or Super Mario this game is for you. The graphics are colorful and varied, the levels have differing enemies with different attacking styles to keep things interesting and the game introduces new elements like icy blocks, lava and falling blocks as you progress. I personally also love that there are multiple weapons with varying effects and special attacks, different armor and a really neat buff system which are called relics. Similar to rings in Dark Souls they give you permanent buffs like increased speed, increased magic bar or increased defense as long as you are using the relic with that skill. Many to acquire so the game stays feeling very fresh, which is also due to how much thought went into the level design. If this game had been on the SNES (and if feels like it could have been) it would have been a hit. The controls are very responsive which made navigating the levels so much easier.

This game is a steal at 2 or 3 dollars and I personally can’t recommend it enough. Outstanding retro platformer which is among the best I’ve seen on IOS.

Fantastic game

Great game. My favorite action game/platformer by far on the iPhone.

Whoever said this game is uninspired and depressing must play way too many games or otherwise being approaching this from a "hardcore" or "critic" view that is overly jaded. This game is really fantastic, it actually has amazing gameplay that is balanced. The gear has an impact on your character visually and adds welcome variation to the gameplay without altering the basic challenge of each level. You can't be OP, and the difficulty seems to always be at the right spot. It is great value for what you pay. Its easy to pick up for a quick level or play for hours depending on what you feel like. It has kept me playing until almost 100% completion. The only thing is the story - I was like "what story?" I just played through all the levels and twice the game randomly "ended" after I killed some bosses and I was like wth happened. Who cares though, I didn't even want a story, I like to play this while I listen to podcasts or talk to someone on the phone for a long time. Besides that I agree with all the stuff the other people say about it. Just great!

Nice game, but left wanting more...

I don’t buy a lot of games, but after reading the many positive reviews I thought I would make an exception. The controls are easy to get used to and the game begins with great promise. However, as I got further along I was left wanting more. There is almost no difference between weapons and thus very little incentive to upgrade your character. I played the last 5 chapters with the same sword I bought in the first chapter. I was a little annoyed that there is no perceptible difference in the suits of armor (only there for fashion?) and I still have no idea what purpose the souvenirs play in the game. It would have been nice to be able to trade, sell, or incorporate these souvenirs into the overall story (e.g. quests given by the townsfolk you meet along the way). About the only exciting thing was discovering the different relics. I would have liked a little more character development and more of a story to motive further gameplay. It would have been nice to have a health bar rather than discrete hearts; I think that would have helped fix the issue with the different suits of armor. In the end, it was an entertaining game, but I admit that I only completed the game because I can’t leave a game half done.
