Early last month we took a hands-on look at BeaverTap Games' upcoming retro-inspired platforming game Mikey Shorts, which is actually the product of two TouchArcade forum members, and have been eagerly anticipating the final release ever since. Mikey Shorts keeps things pretty simple: running, jumping and sliding is the order of the day. There aren't even enemies to worry about, just coins to collect and a par time to complete the level by.

That's not actually a bad thing, either. In fact it's what I like most about Mikey Shorts. It has solid controls and gives you the tools you need to find the optimum route through any given level. It's just you against the level designs, and it's incredibly fun. Today we learned thanks to the BeaverTap Games Twitter account that Mikey Shorts has been sent off to receive Apple's blessing. We're excited to finally see it release, and so are the folks in our forums.

Hopefully the approval process doesn't take too long and we'll be seeing Mikey Shorts in a couple of weeks or so.

      I'd tap it.

      In other news, looks neat. Hopefully a free offer though. Believe me, I'm willing to pay $.99 for a game, but this doesn't look like one of those.

        It's doubtful this will be free, but who knows. I'm willing to toss a buck at it if it's any good in the end.

    Mikey Shorts will release as a $0.99 Universal app. We're creating a release trailer and we'll post some screenshots in the forum thread.

    We've been working on Mikey Shorts for a long time and we really hope you guys like it!

    I've been on the Beta team for the last month or two... and OMG!! This is easily my MOST FAVORITE PLATFORMER FOR THE IOS!! I love it! More than Mos Speedrun, more than LoE, more than Miss Claire Garden, more than Terra Noctis, more than ANY OTHER PLATFORMER for the iOS. It's FANTASTIC! I've been totally blown away throughout the whole beta process... and can not wait for this to hit the AppStore, so I can FINALLY talk about it with other members here on TA! =oD

      Wow if synthetic is glowing over this then I'm really excited now!
