KIDS EDITION - simpler controls (less gravity, smoother jetpack)

Every gentlemen knows that money doesn't grow on trees !! In fact, money grows near sky islands ! PIck up your steam jetpack and go collect money and rubies in the sky ! :)


Great game

Had fun with it, played both versions, didn't see much of a difference.
Music was fun, entertained me for awhile :)

Anyone who thinks this isn't for kids, clearly, did not have an NES and play the old megaman games, or ninja turtles. That water level with electric seaweed was damn hard.

Lemme guess,"I play halo and get kills, So I R good gamer, dis game too hard bcuz I bad at it."

good old 8 bit games were harder for sure!!! :)))

for kids my butt

very challenging. I really couldnt get the timing right on the jet pack to traverse narrow ways of spikes.

Not any easier than the first one.

I've played both all the way through, and really, anybody who would hand this version to their kids and say, "beat this, it's easy," is probably looking to raise a kid with severe confidence issues. When I saw the title, I decided that it was not worth my time and navigated to your profile to find the adult version.

The problem was the pace of the game. It's simply too fast for human interaction. In a good game, you can see what you're doing wrong and correct yourself in real time. But not this game. In this game, you simply have to find exactly the right rhythm for horizontal flight and apply it tirelessly across long distances. That's the only strategy there is. Tapping the arrow keys for ridiculously small amounts of time will send you flying across half the map.

Also, what kind of a man builds a ruby-powered, steam-propelled jetpack and fails to include a variable valve in his design? He is neither a gentlemen nor a scholar and must return his top hat to the proper authorities this instant!

simpler controls

The problem isn't that the controlls are "complicated". up, down, left, right.
If you take bad controlls and make them simple, they become simply bad controlls.

None of the puzzles are complicated, with one glance of the screen you know exactly what to do, but due to the bad controlls- getting your character to do what you want done is tedious to say the least.
it was a perfectly fine game otherwise.

Haha fun game.

This game is pretty fun, it's easy, but I noticed when you hit the sides of the spikes it still kills you, maybe it's meant to be like that, but I thought it shouldn't really kill you unless you land on top of them, but overall it's still a good playable game :D!
