    *****************************************
    "We've thoroughly enjoyed what we've played so far of Armin Gessert's Giana Sisters. There's something special about a great 80's platformer, and this one seems to get all the elements just right."
    (toucharcade.com) "This really is a TOP QUALITY game. One of the best I have played for sure. .. "Pick it up now ..Best platformer I have played on my iphone by far." (CRANKER, toucharcade.com forum) "this is a great game. Retro, but with a contemporary feel." (squarezero, toucharcade.com forum) "It's nice -- very well done, if very cartoony now, and it plays a great deal like the original." (Mindfield, toucharcade.com forum) "Fantastic animations, great graphics in general, controls work well, the music is nice. Overall: a wonderful atmosphere." (your_personal_robot, toucharcade.com forum) "This is a really great game. Everything works so well and it is a blast. (BazookaTime, toucharcade.com forum) "1st game for me well worth the asking price.I played this when it was 1st launched way back and to show how much I liked it I still have the discs as I couldnt bring myself to dispose or even sell them." (asolja, toucharcade.com) "I have played this game now for 1 hour and i LOVE IT! The music is so so so great and the graphics is good too. Buy it. 5/5" (Neostar, toucharcade.com) ***************************************** More than 20 years ago Armin Gessert developed with GIANA SISTERS one of the first Jump'n'Run games for the Commodore C64 - the console manufacturers got anxious - one of them tried to stop the sisters and the end seemed close.

Especially designed for the possibilities and functions of the iPhone / iPod GIANA SISTERS captivates through its completely new graphic especially for this version, new control options and several Apple 3.0 features. The newly polished 32 classic levels from the old days should result in hear palpitation and teary-eyes for real enthusiasts.

Jump deep into the Giana world with 80 new adventures.

    The single best platformer on the iPhone. If you want a better game, you'll have to lay hands on a Nintendo DS to play New Super Mario Bros. And even then, Giana Sisters stacks up for its fantastic art direction, unique creature designs and the fact that the entire game world isn't the product of a bizarre acid trip.

    With online scores, and achievements through OpenFeint gamelife the game turns into a complete package. To me Giana Sisters is among the best platform games for the iPhone alongside Soosiz and Earthworm Jim.

    This is a classic from the vaults of gaming history revisited for touch devices and while not the best platformer available it does have a genuine pedigree to live up to.

    Giana Sisters won't win any awards for creativity, but the gameplay is solid and the high fun factor will keep you coming back for more.
