    hmmm i can't put a name to it, it does look familiar.

    thanks for the updates, this is probably the #1 puzzle platformer I've ever played

    Nobody? Never mind, the level is a homage to Manic Miner and it's first level Central Cavern...maybe some old school players (like us in Rake in Grass) can remember :)

    Heh, Manic Miner is a Speccy classic, but I don't know how many people over here in America are actually aware of it. I'm a (long-long)long-time gamer, and I didn't know anything about Manic Miner until I started reading the awesome UK magazine Retro Gamer a couple of years ago. :)

    For anyone interested in trying it out, there are a bunch of Windows and Flash remakes and emulations out there. Definitely worth looking into! The sequel, Jet Set Willy, is also very good.

    Have a little error with the update:

    iTunes shows me the update for AA, after downloading it and another search for updates of all apps, I again see a new update for AA. I go to the information dialog in the app section of apps on my computer, and have the 1.7 version number file on my hardrive. Again, when I search for updates, iTunes shows me 1.7 AA available for downloading?!

    I had this problem with Facebook app lately - had to update it from the phone, or delete from iTunes and redownload to stop showing it in the updates...

    iTunes informed me today that Archibald's Adventures is now a free universal upgrade! :)

    http://itunes.apple.com/app/archibalds-adventures/id300194705

    By the way, despite the awesome name, the game is nothing to do with me! :D
    It's from http://www.rakeingrass.com

    Excellent, I have this on the PSP and thought it was brilliant, but on the iPad, I might just have to splash out on it :)

    We hope the 0.99$ sale gets some attention to the iPad version since we didn't choose to release it as separate HD version of the game. Thanksgiving is just a coincidence :) The controls are the same as on iPhone and maybe I will improve them on some update if that would be needed.

    99Ā¢ for an awesome game like this, that is universal and has 191 levels is just insane! :D
    And so is anyone who doesn't pick up this game at this price! :p

    I have always loved this game and it is great that it went universal. It looks and plays well on the iPad.

    However, unless I am missing something, the game only takes up about a forth of the screen now with the rest being blacked out. The level select screen is full screen and looks awesome but when you play a level you get to use only a small portion of the screen.
