Very nice

I'd like to see more LCD ghosting from the images which are not currently in play. Some other LCD titles for Windows Phone such as Merry Chef do this well. Also it would be nice to get a one sentence introduction on the flyer as to the game objective, such as 'control the robot to load bricks into the fire, and try to get the fire hot enough in the hole above where the monkey is standing.' But overall it is well made and much appreciated.

Awesome game!! I remember playing this kind of game as a kid. Love the way they replicated the whole experience, including the LCD distortion when pressing the screen, the buttons, etc. Great work!!

This a simple addictive game to pass time. It reminds me of the old games when I was a kid. We need more quality games added like this.

Perfectly done! The LCD touch effect is incredibly realistic. Best execution of a retro game I've seen on Phone. Deserves 5 Stars for sure.
