This raises the bar for iOS games finally real gameplay and not some modern day tiger handheld crap. Can't stop playing and each play gets better. Bravo. Play it.

Update please

This is a five star game except for the lack of updates

Thrilling gameplay


By far the best controls of any touch device game I've ever played. I have played both the mobile and PC versions of this game, and both just shine. The concept is simple, the controls feel tight, and the experience overall is just fantastic. It might look simplistic at first, but I really can't recommend it more.



This game is honestly one of the best I phone games that I've played in a long time.



Iv had this app for a long time now, never ceases to amaze me

A Gem.

Simply put, this ode to classic gaming has it all. The introduction leaves an enticing feeling as you decide to leave the comfort of your bed for an adventure down a challenging and exciting well hole. As far as iPhone controls go, this game has a smooth feel with a three button layout. The animations of the sprites are cute and well thought out giving way to the simple color palette. Overall a complete experience for handheld gaming and worth your cash. I look to developers to take something from this game in terms of style and simplicity.

Cool and Yes

This game is awesome! Every so often, Devolver publishes real gems. The low price justifies the fact that a touch screen is not optimal for this game.

Fantastic Gameplay, Occasional Performance Drops

Pros: Addictive gameplay Clean retro aesthetic Cons: Occasional performance bugs on up to date iOS



All told, I think this is the best mobile game I've played. It's definitely a twitchy action title, but it has a load of depth that reveals itself to you as you play and study it. Graphics and sound are perfect, lovely music, unbelievably good controls for mobile, very challenging but ultimately conquerable. Reminds me a bit of Spelunky, though it is not as involved as that, and definitely more arcadey. Strongest recommendation.
