    Hey there!

    I tried the html5 demo out, and I have this to say:


    It's a very well put together little game. I like how you've really thought about the level design - I think on level 2, with the big ball of death, the way you've placed the coins in a manner that suggests you can find a secret area is indicative about the amount of thought that's gone into it.

    Also, I very much like the graphics - very polished - I liked how the rays of light indicated an exit, and how, once entering a new area, they disappeared on the other side.

    Criticisms would be:

    It's a little slow paced for me. Perhaps it gets more frantic later?

    Levels are made up of several 'screens'. Nothing wrong with that. I did find it frustrating though, that if you're on the 5th screen of a level, die, and then retry, you start at screen 1.

    Overall though a more than competent effort - nice one!

    QS :D

    Noticed a couple complaints in the app store about the tilt control.

    Since the game is new and the app store reviews are key to sales, you might want to hurry and drop in dpad controls really fast!

    A bit slow but very nice overall.
    On the HTML5 version I would love to be able to use space to continu instead of having to pick up my mouse and click on the screen at the beginning of each level.

    Reminds me a little bit of pharao's curse on the cmd64
