More details on Bean’s Quest:

Emilio has been cursed and his girlfriend kidnapped! Transformed by dark magic into a jumping bean, Emilio must bounce his way to victory through 50 levels spread over 5 worlds. Can Emilio rescue his one true love and find his missing pet axolotls?

Bean’s Quest brings back classic platforming to the iPhone and iPad with an incredibly intuitive control scheme that allows for a degree of precision platforming rarely seen on iOS.

Key features:

Unique flavour of retro platforming goodness

Bean is constantly jumping with a super intuitive control scheme: just touch left or touch right to bounce in that direction. Easy to pick up yet hard to master, unique enemies and obstacles will really test your platforming skills.

A New Take on Speed Runs

Every stage is a finely tuned obstacle course which can be completed in an optimal number of jumps (the 'par'), requiring the player both master their sense of timing and solve mind bending puzzles in the heat of a speed run.

Physics-driven Gameplay

Emilio will push blocks, spin seesaws, roll boulders, crush enemies and dodge spike-balls in his quest. Bean’s Quest is a 16-bit platformer with modern physics, clever puzzles and subtle platforming.

Rescue your Pet Axolotls

The evil wizard who cursed Bean also kidnapped his pet axolotls – brutal! Every stage has an axolotl to be rescued.

Full Game Center integration

25 achievements and a jump count leaderboard for every world provides loads of replay value and a competitive edge to the platforming experience.
