    I save to the Apple .plist format, which is essentially just XML yeah. There's potential for more levels coming soon. I also might include the editor so that people can make there own levels

    I wrote the editor myself. I'm thinking about exposing it to players in an update though. It's just sorta hard to use at the mo - kinda needs it's own instruction manual

    Very nice game just loved it. Is it available for android platform also. If its not in android please build it using clone script. If you develop app using clone scripts it's reduces your time.

    Thanks man. I don't mean to rule Android out but it would be a fair bit of work since it's all written in Objective-C. I'll see how demand goes on iOS and weigh up the decision in a few weeks.

    I think you are in a bit of an issue with Apple's legal agreement as this game is almost a direct copy of Alex kid :/

    That's a bit of a stretch. Kinda similar. But look at all the Flappy Birds that came out! LOL At least it's not another Flappy Bird.

    I would say the art assets themselves, while different are still plagiarism of the original game.
    It's like I would draw Mario a bit different from what it's drawn in a Nintendo game and everyone would recognize it's Mario look alike and I would claim it's a different character.
    There might be even some level design similarities.

    The difference with flappy bird is that the guy of flappy bird doesn't care about his stolen IP, but SEGA might care.

    Also didn't Apple remove most of the flappy bird clones?
    If SEGA finds out about this game it might have to sue him to protect their IP.

    My intention was never to infringe any IP. Honestly, I searched for Alex Kidd in the App Store because I wanted to buy it. When I saw it didn't exist, It got me wondering if I should just try and create something similar myself. No code or artwork was copied, everything made from scratch, Alex Kidd was simply used as my inspiration. Consider it a homage to my favourite childhood game.

    I'm currently working on the v1.2 update, which I think is going to include some new original level designs. If anybody has any feedback, I'd love to hear it and it could make it into v1.2
