The pets will help you collect coins and attack enemies once they
reach a certain level. Overall there are 9 different pets for you to
unlock. This is where IAP comes in handy, but you can also get enough
jewels by playing the game.
All of the 3 heroes are playable from the beginning and feature a
unique Skilltree. Akio the Ninja, Nori the Samurai, and Buchuu the

to feel as 'at home' on an iPhone as it presumably would on a NES.
Highly recommended..." - TheSmartphoneAppReview.com
