    Totally looks like Alex Kidd in Miracle World :D I wonder if it has the Rock Paper Scissors battles too?

    How I hated those rock paper scissors battles when I was a kid...

    I wonder how controls are. I don’t usually like platforming on touch screen.

    Hi I'm the developer. I posted this earlier today in a new thread, didn't realise this was here, so thanks PeteOzzy for sharing.

    No Janken matches in mine i'm afraid (good thing?).

    The controls take some getting used to, but I think some of the handling is better. The physics is slightly less "floaty".

    I must apologise to iOS7 users, who are experiencing crashes on launch. Update will be out in a few days to address this! Or you can update to iOS8, that'l fix the issue.

    V1.1 is now out people. This has a few bug fixes, but most importantly works on iOS7!!

    I have had a day playing this now after the code from the Dev, thanks man, and I can say the controls are spot on! The d pad is even the same shape as it was on the old master system controller!! It's just as hard as I remember though! If you liked the original I highly recommend this, I will be buying after my code runs out!!

    Thanks for the kind words DarkScience. Here are some screenshots taken during development, showing me using the custom built editor ect... Thought some people might be interested in the development side:)

    Looks lovely, so nostalgic! Is there a free demo version to try out? I looked and cannot find. Also, will you be bringing this to Android?

    I'm not ruling Android out but it would be a fair bit of work since it's all been written in Objective-C (Apple land). I'll see how demand goes on iOS and weigh up the decision in a few weeks. I'm thinking about making a free ad-supported demo version too, I'll keep you guys posted for when it arrives :)

    I'm currently working on the v1.2 update, which I think is going to include some new original level designs. If anybody has any feedback, I'd love to hear it and it could make it into v1.2 :)
