    How many ppl in here use MFi controllers? What brand / model do you use?

    Would there be any interest in MFi support in Traps?

    Wow, this is so good! I've played for like 30 minutes and I'm at 9% completed. The controls are really good. Game is easy to controls. Nice graphics. Cool puzzle things like switches that swap different blocks, traps, enemies, different gear to find to get to areas you couldn't before

    And the best part! That good ole' Metroidvanias style map where you can see explored areas slowly fill in the map.

    Really fun. Definitely worth the price. Fans of IOS metroidvanias rejoice! Thanks for making such a great game, Donut Games!

    It was supposed to launch at $5 on all platforms (iOS, Android and Win 8 which it's also available at btw), but we made the launch sale decision just the other week when uploading it to Apple. Changing price on iOS is easy with its price tiers, but a little messier on Android (devs prolly know what I'm talking about), but I suppose it would only be fair to mirror the launch sale on Android too.
    Will definitely bring up the discussion tomorrow at the office. Thanks for your feedback! :)

    Also, before I go to bed (almost 2 AM in Sweden), I'd like to thank you all for the encouraging feedback. Very much appreciated. You rock!

    I've been waiting for this to release. Lol, I don't even look at the description anymore with Donut Games. It's just hit the buy button. You know it's going to be quality.

    Doesn't look like there's anything impossible. Just collection stuff.

    Ahhhh!!!

    I had to pick this up right when I saw it. LOVE metroidvania titles. But the controls are good... And once I got comfortable with the movement (just felt a little sliggish at first, but that feeling quickly faded), everything clicked. Collecting relics to open new areas is great, and from the looks of things, it'll take me a while to 100% the game. Scores are handled nicely and the leaderboards, like with all Donut Games titles, should provide plenty of incentive to play even after completion.

    $3?, great price! =oD

    I hate to sound like a McDonalds advertisement, but I'm loving it!

    Another well made game from the Donut, only this time it feels like something more.
    The controls really feel good and everything seems to have an extra layer of polish.

    Smooth gameplay tops it all off!
    We sorely needed more games like this on iOS, thank you!

    Great quality release. Plays rather well and it's fun to explore and find everything, or try to.

    SteelSeries Stratus here.

    I am really enjoying this. It hits all the right notes of exploration with a nice touch of puzzles and arcade action. Donut Games does it again!

    waiting on a CTRLi as well but production problems is what I heard on Afterpad. However, the full size Hori pad hits Aug 31st. Some good news from the quiet controller world anyway.

    And of course I'd love controller support too
