Stagehand, cool platformer for iOS

I have a lot of respect for Big Bucket, the mobile game company that set the bar on how to develop a high quality retro-inspired game. I wasted invested a lot of hours in the Barcelona metro playing The Incident, and another few more with Space Age, a game I recommended to all my friends who played adventure games back in the day.

Stagehand is their latest creation. On the surface it looks like your standard platformer. But in reality is a reinterpretation of its basic mechanics. Instead of controlling the character to jump over pits and spikes, you have a constantly-running character and you manipulate the environment, dragging platforms and pieces of the stage in order to navigate the obstacles. Hence the tagline “A Reverse Platformer”.
