    Arcade Jumper is a fun game, especially once you've unlocked the double-jump. However, the restart delays are excessive and the constant returning to the beginning is wearing thin and may stop some players from seeing the zones full of sloping and tilting platforms, asteroids and fireballs ....and probably other stuff I haven't seen yet, because of constantly returning to the beginning.

    Quirks aside, Arcade Jumper is one of the best platformers available for iOS.

    But, for me, the experience is ruined by the starting over thing. I just got tired of playing the first few levels over. And over.

    There's a lot that needs to be worked on in Arcade Jumper. I'm a fan of retro-inspired games; this one just has some issues. I like many of its concepts and use of external controls, but it just needs a lot of work before it can be something really great.
