    Great stuff.

    Purchased. I owe Donut Games this one due to the sheer amount of joy I received from Action Hero - one of the only iOS games I come back to again and again.

    Played about 15 mins, loving it so far. Bravo!

    This is how the "High Score" element is implemented. I like it too :)

    I do. I've got the Steelseries and I love it so much that I only buy games that support MFI.

    I'll be buying TnG as soon as it supports MFI.

    I've played it for about 30 minutes last night and enjoying it. The only thing I found a little irritating with the controls is that if you're not on a platform, you can't jump. This means that in some jumps you have to be pixel perfect especially in cases where there is a ceiling above your head and you need to jump to a higher area near by, like that spot with the Egyptian flipping a switch that opens and closes a ceiling. Would have been better IMO if you could just jump whenever.
    I'm also no fan of high score games so having the gems and score reset when you die a tiny bit strange.
    But otherwise, yes, I agree with what people are saying here - another quality Donut Games release!

    Is this randomized dungeon or not?

    Brilliant. Just brilliant.

    I love this game. Haven't touched anything else for two days.

    My compulsive exploration itch is being well and truly scratched :)

    Noooo! Andy passed me. I'll make my comeback on the leader boards (at least among friends).

    On a related note: It looks like we may have a cheater too if y'all look at #1 it's over 60k while #2 is just over 5k. Unless that's a score representative of completing the entire game with no deaths?

    I've played 2 hours and 20 minutes now (according to the game) and collected 64%, and I really, really like it. Great work, Donut Games! Everyone should play this. The controls are great, the graphics and the overall charm is great, and pretty good variety in the gameplay. And fun gadgets to use. Just wished that you could change from gun to the rope without being forced to use up all the ammo. Just rated it 4/5 stars on the App Store. Maybe I'll change to 5/5 when I've completed it.

    Maybe I am confused by your comment, but you can jump anywhere at anytime in the game, just press the up button. The room you are talking about I remember, and it took timing to jump above the platform just as the Egyptian is flipping the switch, but that was about timing to solve the puzzle not anything messed up with the controls.

    And to the other question by someone else, no this is not a randomized dungeon, its one pyramid split into different sections similar to Metroid, but you can travel to any section you want, so it isn't exactly linear, however you will need to have certain items to continue in some sections.
