Jack B. Nimble - Kid Dracula/Castlevania inspired game

Been lurking in this forum a while so will take this opportunity to share my new iOS title, Jack B. Nimble!



It's a fast-paced, reaction-heavy platformer with a retro 8-bit/game boy aesthetic heavily borrowing from CV/KD.
It is available now on iOS for $1.99 - no ads, no in app purchases, just game :) You can grab it here: https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=918891211&mt=8

...and if you wanna get in touch with me about the game, or anything really, just reply below or contact me directly on Twitter (@SeanNoonan). I also have a website with a bunch of my other games, here: http://www.sean-noonan.com

A bit more info...



It's a score attack game where you have to run and jump gaps over a distance for points. The core mechanic has you jumping and whipping - something handled with a single input (one tap to jump and whilst airborne, another tap to whip)! Whipping candles will multiply your score and maintaining accuracy is key to bagging all of the points you've earned. All the while backed by a pumping chiptune soundtrack by Castlevania superfan Barry "Epoch" Topping :D

Thanks for checking out the thread, and I hope you enjoy the game!
