About this game

Boasting beautiful, hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack, the cult classic returns with a unique blend of exploration, action, and adventure!

Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, you are in search for a cure! The only way you can return to human form is to find the Salamander Cross, a magical item with the power to remove curses...

With each dragon slain, the curse intensifies, transforming you into different animals! Explore large, interconnected locations populated with grumpy monsters and exotic dragons!

Play as the game’s classic character, Hu-Man, or in support of War Child UK’s Day of the Girl campaign you can now play as Hu-Girl and support girls around the world. You can also inhabit Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man, and Hawk-Man, and use their unique abilities to uncover the land’s deepest secrets.

Enjoy 3 difficulty levels catering to players of all types, and switch from modern graphics and sound to 8-bit graphics/audio at any time - even during gameplay!

I really enjoyed playing this game through. I played the original as a kid and got a lot of pleasure out of seeing the beautifully drawn artwork. I don't play games often, so thought the controls would be problematic for me, but I managed to get through and play the whole game. I would have given it 5 stars, because I actually did love playing through the game, but the game did crash pretty often. It didn't happen every time I played, but if a game session lasted longer than a half hour, it probably crashed once on me in there. I just had to close the app and restart back at the home town. I rarely lost any real progress in the game, though it would have been frustrating if it happened during a boss battle. (It didn't.)

Very amazing and classic game but not ported with very many options. For instance, my phone has the ratio set up so the icons on the top of the screen are basically missing, which is very annoying. I wanted to adjust the resolution or side bars, but there's no options for that. Otherwise it would be a fine port. I refunded it :(

The graphics are great. You can resize the control pad and action buttons, in addition to repositioning them, but somehow this does not fix the issues with slow response. I wasn't able to jump and hit the first level boss even on the easy level. My character couldn't jump high enough at the right moment to do any damage. No matter what I did, it's health stayed at 100%
