“An iOS platformer that actually works.” ~ Penny Arcade

“One of the best games on the iOS platform, hands-down.” ~ iPhoneAlley
“The graphics are perfectly vibrant, and have just enough of that 16-bit era pixely-ness to them without going overboard. The original soundtrack by Flashygoodness is an excellent pairing, and the controls work great…” ~ TouchArcade
“The graphics are fun, colorful, and a treat to look at.” ~ AppAdvice

Awarded MMGN’s App of the Week.

~~ GORGEOUS ART ~~

Beautiful 16-bit stylised artwork fills every stage with a fluid 60 frames per second. Older hardware is also supported. Shimmering diamonds, sparkling special effects and subtle parallax culminate in a mesmerising view!

~~ PHYSICS MAYHEM ~~

Push blocks, spin seesaws, roll boulders, crush enemies and dodge spike-balls! Classic platforming blended with physics puzzles and adorable creatures.

~~ DIAMONDS FOREVER! ~~

Every stage is jam packed with jewels to collect. A guy’s gotta surprise his girl when he rescues her, right?

~~ RESCUE THOSE AXOLOTLS! ~~

The evil wizard who cursed you also kidnapped your pet axolotls – brutal! There’s one hidden in every stage, track them down if you can!

~~ ACHIEVE PERFECT JUMP! ~~

Every stage has a perfect jump count. Make it to the end fast enough and you’ll earn the perfect jump badge!
