It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of the Mikey games around here, and for me personally being a massive platforming game nut, they’re easily amongst my very favorite games on the entire iOS platform. So you could imagine the sadness I felt as the original 3 games in the Mikey Shorts trilogy sat in my “Dead Apps Walking" 32-bit folder, waiting to die with the arrival of iOS 11. But wait! Developer BeaverTap Games has stayed their execution with some slightly delayed but totally welcome 64-bit updates for the Mikey trilogy. Mikey Shorts ($1.99), Mikey Hooks ($1.99), and Mikey Boots ($1.99) are all updated and in good working order now on iOS 11 and are just as fun as ever.
To celebrate these latest updates, each game is also on sale for just 99¢ each, which is half off their normal prices of $1.99. If you’re new to the Mikey series and need a little guidance, well, we’ve given all 3 of these games 5 stars in our reviews over the years. You can find our original Mikey Shorts review here, our Mikey Hooks review here, and our Mikey Boots review here. Last year’s Mikey Jumps (Free) is like an auto-runner amalgamation of all the elements in the 3 original games, and is also well worth your time and free to download and try.
While I love Mikey Jumps to pieces I also love it in a different way than the original games, which are just about flawless in my opinion, and are responsible for some of my fondest iOS gaming memories. I’m so, so hapy to see them saved. So if you own the Mikey games and were sad like me about their incompatibility with iOS 11, it’s time go get happy and smash those update buttons! And if you’ve missed out on the Mikey games previously, grabbing them during this 99¢ sale promotion would be a pretty smart thing to do if you enjoy platformers.
