From Wall West:

Developed by one-man studio Wall West, George: Scared of the Dark may look charming (and even cute), but it's also surprisingly difficult. Can you help George reach the lighthouse and discover who lives in the small cottage so that he can (finally!) find the courage he needs?

If you need help along the way, make sure to grab the skulls scattered across each level to unlock the Jumper, Overshield, and Fireborn power-ups. Collect enough skulls and you can unlock three additional characters to come along for the ride.

Alex Petlenko (Founder, Wall West): "I created George: Scared of the Dark for platforming fans who were itching for a real challenge. George delivers that and more -- including a narrative about facing and conquering your fears. Come for the gameplay and stay for the story :)"

* Adventure through 10 tough procedurally-generated levels
* Choose from 3 power-up abilities essential for George's survival
* Unlock 3 additional characters
* Enjoy intuitive touch and swipe controls for precise platforming
* Uncover a heartwarming story about conquering fears -- along with an unusual ending!
