A Truly Inspirational Buy

I bought this game on a whim, I saw the picture and was intrigued. Little did I know that after reading the reviews and looking over the screenshots my mouse would fly to the Download button. I immediately began playing it and found the controls, whilst difficult to learn initially, very intuitive with the game rewarding you for just having a bit of fun with it.
There is a reason that it is one of the most bought apps on the App Store after only two days. I honestly recommend this to everyone with an iPhone or iPod Touch. A fun puzzle game that is graphically pleasing as well as immensely fun.

After buying "Nyx Quest" I never thought a game would wow me so much again, but Chillingo have done it once more! This little game is insanely beautiful with charming design and superb graphics. The audio is perfect and adds to the atmosphere. The game itself is simple, get the small blob to the end of the level while collecting little lights. It is similar to "Cut The Rope" but for me it is better as it has a lot more gameplay elements, for example moulding the terrain for control. It's just a great game in every department and for 69p it's an absolute must have!

I love this game! Original gameplay style - similar to Cut The Rope.
The music and graphics are truly outstanding - the classical music by composer David Ari Leon is an embracing sound to relax to whilst manipulating the high quality graphics.
'Contre Jour', French for 'against sunlight' - a term used for a type of photography - when the focus is on the light, invading and covering the detail of other objects causing them to silhouette. You can see the 'contre jour' effect in the gameplay graphics.
