SAMQ is the first mobile game to have perfect console controls on the touch screen. By inventing a new control scheme that doesn't utilize any on-screen buttons, the player is finally allowed to have precision platforming on their mobile device. The scheme is so simple that your grandmother could pick it up and play, but with practice you could become a master at it. Based on the same principles that made the original Nintendo such a success.
It also bridges the gap between retro and modern. Every level begins looking like a monochrome Gameboy game and evolves dynamically in front of the player. It crosses the graphics of every generation, going from 1-bit to 8-bit to 16-bit; eventually to full HD. Some secrets can only be found in certain graphic sets, giving SAMQ an entirely new depth never seen before in video games.
IGN.com has already stated that it's a "love song to video games" and published a story on it before the games release.
