App Description

PLEASE NOTE: Requires at least an iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPod touch (5th gen) or newer.

TRAMBO is an action packed minimalistic platformer with unique and simple gameplay mechanics.

We got rid of clumsy virtual joysticks by designing enjoyable invisible controls! The game also has quirky retro aesthetics that send those warm 8-bit vibes to players around the globe.

"Trambo is a platforming game without a 'jump' button. It's about shaving fractions of a second off your time to make sure the wall of black death doesn't consume you. And it's quite good." - Pocket Gamer (PG UK and France gave Trambo a silver award)

"If you're a fan of challenging, retro-like platformers at all, then you will want to give Trambo a try for yourself." - AppAdvice

"This minimalistic platformer contains twenty levels with so much style and so many ideas it turns into a game that is impossible not to recommend." - IGN Italy

"There are some segments that require pinpoint accuracy, and provide a legitimate sense of accomplishment when you clear them. Some of the better levels also feature a labyrinthine type of design intended to trick you into dark corners and dead ends, and it's at this point where the game really shines." - TouchArcade

"Trambo is the black metal of low-fi trial platformers." - 148Apps

TRAMBO features:
-Intuitive invisible controls.
-25 handcrafted levels.
-Two arcade levels with Game Center highscores!
-Fiendish level design with clever traps and challenges!
-Heart-throbbing boss battles!
