You know the old saying, “you can’t take it with you?” Well, we’ve got news for you, my friends, they were WRONG! “Deadbeats” have been taking their riches with them to the afterlife for centuries and it’s the job of the INFERNAL Revenue Service — and its army of skulls — to collect! That’s where you come in.

In “Skullduggery!” you’ll play a Semi-Organic Autonomous Skull employed as a collection agent for the IRS. Using the elasticity of your own brain, flick yourself around the fortresses of the afterlife’s biggest deadbeats.

- BRAIN POWER: Pull back ANYWHERE on the screen to stretch out your brain! Let go to snap your skull forward like a brainy rubber band.

- BULLET TIME: Touch and hold in mid-air to slow down time, change directions, avoid deadly obstacles, and pull off crazy trick shots!

- GRAVITATIONAL TRUANCY: Repeatedly jump by aiming again while your skull is mid-flight.

- STEALTHINESS: Being small has advantages! Hide in trash cans, chests, and jars. Slip behind surly guards and take them out while their backs are turned!

- HEADSHOTS: Take out enemies with a single well-placed fling to the cranium.

- HEAD TO HEAD: Play ‘head to head’ against your friends to become the afterlife’s most successful agent.

- BUREAUCRACY: Fill out paperwork and reflect on the inherent emptiness of existence!

“Skullduggery!” features the endearingly grotesque art stylings of game artist extraordinaire Bill Mudron, inspired by the Max Fleischer animations of the 1930’s, and a quirky, doom-jazzy, bureau-noir soundtrack from industrial musician Michael Arthur Holloway.

Skullduggery! reviews and comments

No explanation. Must buy! This is a game design perfection. I'm having so much fun, hope this game going to expand with tons of new content and levels.

For 29 Kroner I would expect more. Only four "worlds" with eight boards in each. A total of 96 achievments which really are quite simple. Won't buy this if it's not on sale.

With This new update you have really done center! Now finally there are more levels and the game turns out to be even more exciting! The whole thing is crowned with excellent graphics, original gameplay and different from the usual, in short a must have! But I Hope that new updates are made not only to guarantee a better longevity of the game itself, but also to enrich this videogame masterpiece. Hey, you reading this review, what are you waiting to download skullduggery!!!!!???!!

I rarely notice, but given the few comments, I took the trouble. This game is amazing by its gameplay. Directing the skull while idling gives a really fun way to travel. The levels are full of coins, enemies, secrets while still being readable. The difficulty is well dosed, we start again several times for the hard levels and we catch up to try again and again until the relief to have finished. This game is a gem of the AppStore. A game like we do more. Great Bravo to the devs!

I think the Game is very good, it's made really sweet (the Characters and generally the Optics). The Graphics are great; It doesn't tick, there are no electronic Flaws at all. Both Thumbs up ! Unfortunately only four Stars, since: 1. I have set for normal, but nevertheless I find the Starting level Very difficult. considering that the Levels get heavier as the game progresses, I have to consider whether I might switch to Casual. 2. The Description tells of a Tax Collector. I think the Back Story is great and therefore a great pity that the Story is not taken up. It's just so told by the Makers, but if you'd just bought the Game like that (without having looked at the Description), you wouldn't come up with the Idea. One could have incorporated Such beautiful Dialogues (Greeting the Makers ). What a pity. Still very good Game and worth its £2.99! Just recommended Have fun with it
