"...a small masterpiece..."


"...there appears to be many hours of play in it even without using the editor. Personally I think it is excellent...the direction buttons are very responsive..."


"Wow, bought it and must say, it has its attraction and is really tricky...you can play it occasionally or some hours at once"


Gopher 2 is an arcade style game where you direct Carl, a little Gopher through deep underground caves on its way to the exit. Unfortunately they are only open if Carl collects enough golden Carrots on his way.

Watch out for the time running out while solving the puzzles. And don't get stuck or killed by falling stones, although those aren't the worst things you have to worry about. In some Caves Ghosts will cross your path and they are deadly if touched.

The graphics are very old fashioned because Gopher 2 is some kind of a remake of an old game I played over twenty years ago and I wanted to maintain the old charm of it as much as possible.

Gopher 2 includes game play elements from Boulder Dash(R), which is a registered trademark of First Star Software, Inc. Copyright (C) 1984, 2009 First Star Software, Inc. All rights reserved.

The game Gopher 2 is published with permission from First Star Software, Inc.

To Celebrate the world wide Release of Gopher 2 the first Part of Gopher 2 is called Retrospective and will give you a look back to the look and feel of its predecessor.


- 230 different action-filled, puzzling Caves in 8 Cave Packs.

- a Cave Editor(C) coming with Gopher 2 allowing you to create your own cave packs.

- automatic Save Game mechanism

- Cave Replay without Save Game changes

The ability to share your Cave Pack(s) with others who have also purchased Gopher 2 will be provided in the future.

You can use multitouch to direct Carl by pressing on the arrow buttons (best played with both thumbs) or with one finger swiping from one button to another.

Great little title if you can look past the tiny graphics.

While I had low expectation when loading this game, mainly because of the graphics, which fills only about half the screen -- after playing a few levels, I was hooked and quickly realized that this little gem of a game is definitely worth a buck. Great classical feel from the past, and even though the on-screen control felt a little awkward to me at first, they were very responsive and didn't deter from the entertaining classical gameplay.

If you like puzzle and or classic games/gameplay, this is one game I'd recommend, especially at a dollar.

5/5 stars

Excellent! Don't miss this beauty!

A love this one!
I played the B&W version and I loved it! So I decided to buy the full version. The gameplay is great. Definitely there is a great retro feeling on the controls and the music. There is tons of hours of great gameplay on this app. The only thing I would ask for is the option to turn from color to black & white. I would give it a nice retro touch!
