If I could just find more apps like this I love these kind of games. The cute little stories, the smooth gameplay, excellent graphics all just tied it together into a neat little package. The jumping is what really surprised me. The jumps were so smooth I felt like my character would slide off the platform. Being able to walk in water was cool too (while it lasted that is). The story was small, but heartwarming and although this game was less than a good 20 minutes in total gameplay, I really enjoyed it in the end. Definite recommend.
Amazing experience This short game was very enjoyable to play. There were a few minor bugs like being stuck going left when holding a button after you died or not having immersive mode, but I didn't mind. Even though it was short, it was very well-done. The retro graphics were gorgeous, the controls were smooth and easy and the level design was excellent. Best 20 minutes I've had in a while.
Tease Third Adventure Islands game I've played and third time I've felt happy, but jipped. Only jipped by the length though. I understand this particular game is meant to be a short story and by that standard, I truly enjoyed it. But I always feel teased. Always such solid controls and fun gameplay only to finish it in one sitting. Been searching for good platformers so it sucks to be done in an instant and be back searching for another. Time to try Adventure Islands' fourth game. Fingers crossed.
A display of excellence in game design This game has everything a great game needs: a good concept, tight controls and gameplay, great music, and a likeable main character. My only criticism is that it could do with about 1/3 as much dialog...that part felt a bit cheesy/ham-handed. Still, this game stands out as one of the best I've played. 5/5.
Nice story and adventure shadowed by a few bugs This game is a great app for the minimalistic theme. It has a nice story of the ultimate redemption, and a fair amount of levels for a game that can't save your progress. But it does have a few bugs: player keeps going left if he/she dies, and the next cutscene not coming up after finishing 3 levels or so. But either way, it's a great game.
Great stuff. The game hits home with its platforming and story. I encountered a bug where our character runs to the left automatically ,but it's easy to break if you die. Also a few of my jumps didn't register ,but the game is perfectly playable. It's a short, but sweet game and I highly recommend it to anyone really.
1.4 - Changed scale mode, the previous one was not working properly on some devices, leaving the movement buttons partially off screen.
1.3 - Wide screen support and better performance.
1.2 - Huge performance fix. The game should play much smoother now on all platforms.
1.1 - Fixed scaling bug that caused weird lines appear next to certain tiles.
1.0 - Release.
