    No borders but it defiantly is somewhat blurry since its scaled to the bigger screen

    Loving this ! Took a while to get used to the slightly different way it plays, eg just left/right buttons, guys always moving you cant stop.

    But played a fair few levels now and its great. It really is a brilliant homage to those classic 80's games. Graphics are great, small filesize as well. Game of the week for me

    It probably is as it fills my iPad Air 2 screen with no borders or anything.

    So far it's ok maybe not my kind of thing but I'll give it a bit more of a chance to see if it opens up a bit.

    Loving this game a bunch! Anyone here old enough to have played Neo Geo? This is like "Nightmare in the Dark" on Mushrooms! Love the nonstop action and need for quick thinking. Art style is a lot of fun too. Easily worth the entry fee!

    Well, I just finished it (ish—I haven't seen the 'proper' ending yet), and it's absolutely glorious all the way through. If you're a fan of classic single-screen platform games that move at pace, you HAVE to buy this game. To my mind, it feels like a classic arcade title—a Bubble Bobble or Snow Bros.—that's been teleported into the iPad and given perfect touch controls. Loads of smart design throughout, visually and also in the way it gradually adds to its arsenal of foes to lob at you. Great stuff.

    Downloading! Haven't even read any impressions. I loved Lost Yeti sooooo much, I just had to get their next game.

    Works great on my iPad mini but just hangs on my iPhone 6 8.1.2 uninstalling and reinstalling and rebooting does nothing to help :(

    Been waiting on this one for a while, great to see it released. I was expecting a $2.99 price tag, a buck is a steal for this. Downloading now. Can't wait to sink some time into it!

    Spot on review, really. Drop Wizard is a joy to play and like Cyg mentioned 0.99p/$ is a steal, as is the norm with these types of quality games with no IAP.

    There are 5 chapters, each chapter has 2 Acts. Each Act has 5 normal stages plus a boss stage. Also, the app description mentions 'secret game modes' which I haven't discovered yet.

    I don't really have much more to add to what's already been said. I'll try to let my videos do the talking for me.


    Edit: Forgot to congratulate Neutronized for the excellent review... Congrats! Well done and best of luck. Thanks for the game. :)

    Thanks for your reply. I emailed you and you replied very fast. It turned out I had some big games auto update from the App store leaving me only 12mb free space. Cleared a GB and its Loading fine now.

    Your games are great and support fantastic also. Thanks also TA for always showcasing great games.

    So, what's the point in collecting the coins or fruit? There's not even a counter that show points or number of coins collected.

    Thanks for the great feedback, guys! :)

    The iPhone version has the the score counter inside the pause menu while in the iPad version it's displayed on top of the screen. iPhone has smaller screen and we wanted to keep HUD as clean as possible.

    Scored points are submitted to GameCenter leaderboards.
