Fun but frustrating
In theory this is a great game. Challenging and entertaining. But for one fatal flaw....the controls. When the level is all about finger dexterity and not using your brain I loose interest and go on to the next level. As is, it's 3 stars, fix the controls or leave off the levels that are strickly about speed and luck and it's a five star game.

The puzzles are a lot of fun! There are easy and difficult challenges. I have had to watch the video help a couple of times. The design is phenomenal, and overall the game is one of the best on the app store.

Archie's Adventures Review
Okay, I'll say it flat-out. This is my favorite game on the app store. Surprisingly, no one has heard of it. This is the kind of title you would find on the handheld systems such as the DS. This is a unique, fresh, and above all fun puzzle platformer that will put your brain (and sometimes reflexes) to the test. Basically, this is a platformer with NO jump button. Instead, jumps happen when your character, Archibald, moves off the edge of an object. Depending on the speed of your character, you will jump far or just fall down. In addition, Archie can climb up steps if they are one square higher than him, simply by moving. The gameplay is constantly throwing new challenges at you. The first few levels have Arcibald on a skateboard, but later, he will pilot a vehicle that can magnetically cling to steel walls and ceilings. In addition, he will also find magic gum, which when used, will spawn a bubble that the player can control to flip switches or lift boxes which are out of Archie's range. There is even a set of levels where you play as the Professor, who floats around the levels on a jetpack. The levels are filled with all sorts of deadly traps and clever puzzles such as spikes, acid, bombs, crates, and mutants. This game is also LONG. There are over 200 levels to play through, and quite a few of them can be tricky to solve. In addition, the developers have posted video solutions on their website for many of the levels in case you get stuck (and you WILL). If i had to nitpick, I suppose the graphics are a bit simple, but for sheer gameplay, there is simply nothing better on the app store than Archibald's Adventures

Great game
Many levels in this puzzle game that requires some itouch dexterity. The story is fun, and the graphics are fantastic. Try the demo, and you'll soon upgrade to the full game. Recommended!
