    Game plays great @Kevin W, great work indeed. Really tricky though and very little margin for error. Trying to get past Triton 1:3, I think a lot of folks might ditch it at this point. Too hard, too soon in my opinion.

    Thanks @Phill Mason, great feedback dude - yeah it is kinda tricky that one and it's something we'll look at tweaking for sure - our testers didn't really pick up on this but duly noted :)

    Looks great @Kevin W agree with @Phill Mason though the long platform is too hard to get over on that level.
    Great concept and graphics :)

    'Gameplay Difficulty' is always a tough call for sure and not that you need anyone here to tell you how to make great games, as you've nailed that everytime you launch :) but I guess the only real test is user feedback/comments. My difficult is another mans easy, you know that well-known phrase :)

    thanks @dtanner2000 - we'll surely look at changing it a bit, but as I mentioned, it never really came up through our testing process - although you guys need to up your skills haha - thanks guys for the comments

    Very cool game, @Kevin W
    And to the others that say its to hard its not,
    To get over the long one on 1.3 you just need to hold your touch a bit longer. Time your jumps and its pretty easy.
    Must be a young persons thing LOL.
    Its actually a really clever and cool game. Well done and good luck with it.

    thanks @playsgames6666 :) Pretty sure we could've done a better job of explaining the multiple tap combo's and making it slightly easier early on, but there's much to be said about letting the player figure stuff out - It's a real fine balance that we're constantly striving to get better at - in the age of small attention spans it's a valid observation for sure - all good feedback folks - super appreciated!

    He he - thought so. Did notice that the music didn't play when I first booted up the app (sound FX fine) - had to mute and un-mute to get music. But to be fair I thinks that's a BB thing!

    iPhone 6 mate. I've noticed this before (mostly on Android) and pretty sure the bug has been noted - but might be an idea to raise it again to the powers that be just in case!

    congrats man, i was waiting on pins and needles to see your game and as expected it's really great and awesome very polished, however as fellows said in some levels it get really hard specially triton 1-3 the firsts levels need to be easy and get harder by progressing. so cool man keep going...

    What is the philosophy behind this strategy? When will you turn them on and why then?

    @heathclose - we'll turn the ads on after the Appstore refreshes US time - we have banners and interstitials - Banners will go on then, we'll assess if we turn the interstitials on at all. The idea is that the app is nice and clean whilst through the review process.
