    The two members of BeaverTap Games met on an internet message board for the iOS game 'Hook Champ.' They became very competitive and battled for global domination.*After a year of fierce, virtual combat, the handsome warriors discussed the possiblitity of joining forces and creating a game of their own. At the start of 2011, BeaverTap Games was born.*With their first title 'Mikey Shorts', the gentlemen hope to show the fun and exciting world of speedrunning 2D platformers to a casual crowd, while still including enough challenge for talented gamers to enjoy.

    What are the disguises for? Do they help you in the game, or are they strictly visual?

    The disguises are just for fun. You can collect coins in every level to spend on disguises. Coins are fairly easy to come by. There's no IAP.

    The game has appeared on the App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mikey-shorts/id508176435?&mt=8

    Cool. thanks for the link

    I still think it is a good idea to link a 'costume' to a specific 'perk' for the game. makes it interesting.
