    My first impression after 40 mins ish gameplay
    - It doesn't auto-rotate to another side of the screen. As I use a flip case, playing on the other side of the screen would feel better.
    - It would be great if I can resize the buttons and rearrange them as I have small hands.
    - The control works perfectly. I don't think MFI controllers support would be necessary. Yes, it can be an advantage but the game is still enjoyable without that.
    - The gameplay is casual. When I explored the area and could find the gem, it felt very satisfying.

    PS: I also uploaded a video. Hope more people would see your game in Google search result.

    @GFG And I’m done. Took me 2 and a 1/2 hours (according to Screen time) to 100% complete the game which is a fantastic value considering the asking price. And I’m sure I’m gonna do another run. I love the references to other ZX Spectrum classic games in form of statues in each trophy room. I’m wondering if anyone can recognize each one of them. Thank you for this trip down the memory lane to my gaming youth. It was amazing!

    @anthony78 If I get around to building an iPhone version I will tag you in the post :)

    @Makara Nou You make a good point about auto flip I will fix that for the build.
    Also, I will look into what I can do about button size options too.
    Thank you for the gameplay video, it's always fun to see what different approaches people take to each level.

    @macplash That's awesome! I'm really happy someone took the time to complete the game and enjoyed playing it also. It took me a while do whittle it down to the 5 statues I picked for the Relic temples as there are so many games i Loved on the Zx Spectrum haha.

    Looks amazing but it’s very very rare to have an iPad only platformer. Second this is universal I’ll be buying this.

    edit - after reading all the comments I’ll be buying this later 100% to support the dev. Don’t play much on my iPad but this game looks too good !!

    Love the speccy stuff I’ve seen like the loading screen

    edit 2 - played a few levels. Really good. So reminds me of an 8 bit classic. Might be more BBC actually than speccy. Either way we’ll worth picking up

    @psj3809 Thanks for downloading and I'm glad you're enjoying it.

    I can see where you're coming from with the BBC Micro Comparison, I remember having one at school and playing Granny's Garden on it, it was a great little system. :D

    @psj3809 I'm really glad you enjoyed it and thank you for taking the time to complete it.
    I would love to make a sequel one day but first, I'm working on a Mac and Kindle Fire tablet port.

    Also a big thank you to both @psj3809 and @Makara Nou for leaving reviews on the App Store, that's a great help, Cheers :D

    @GFG that is very generous of you! Thank you.

    I suggest everyone with iPad to play this beauty. Although, I encourage everyone to just buy it and support the dev so we can have more games like this in the future.
