App Description

Update for iPhone 5 full screen coming soon!

Captain Nova is a retro style platform game made in the style of classics you know and love!

After crash landing on a strange planet, Captain Nova realizes that pieces of his ship have been scattered across the planet's surface. His only hope is to find all of the missing pieces and rebuild his ship. It's not going to be easy though, the planet is filled with all manner of disagreeable creatures and bizarre plant life. Will he make it? Only you can find out!

Featuring exciting pixel graphics, an original soundtrack, and 30 challenging levels!

Keep an eye out for secret areas, and be sure to find Captain Nova's lost rocket boots as soon as possible! This will make the adventure much more manageable.


Use the directional arrows to move.

Tap the "A" button to jump, hold for a higher jump.

Once you find the rocket boots touch and hold "A" again mid-jump to activate the boots and hover.
