THE INCIDENT is a fast-paced, retro-style action game. Run, dodge and jump your way to safety as an angry rain of just about everything in the world falls and builds a mountain of platforms for you to climb up, up… up to the source of it all: the cause of THE INCIDENT.

"This iPhone/iPad game is really great - get it! $2. It makes me laugh every time I play it." —John Romero, Designer of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake.

"A game you pick up quickly, but can't put back down." —Engadget

"Gaming's Most Charming Vision of the Apocalypse" —Gizmodo

"The controls work well, the graphics look cool, it's universal from the get go, and I really dig the whole concept behind the game." —Touch Arcade

"Terrific little indie games like this are what make the iPhone platform really shine." —TUAW

THE INCIDENT is easy to pick up but hard to master. It's a totally new gameplay concept and it's perhaps TOO addictive. It's loaded with power-ups, power-downs (d'oh!) and collectables.

THE INCIDENT is a universal app that runs great on any iPhone or iPod touch, and on iPad. Buy once, play anywhere!

This is a FUN FUN FUN game to play!!!!

After all these years, I got reacquainted with The Incident. Still! A great looking and fun game to play on the iPhone.

I know the game is aging but I would love to see the developer offer support for it again. Namely, controller support for the iPhone. I hope this game never leaves the AppStore and we need more like it. ❤️❤️❤️

Game is super fun!!!! I remember few years back I played this with my older sister and we loved it. Now I was searching up the game and now I found it! I thought my memory’s were gone forever! But can you change the starting up music? It gives me PTSD lol. Anyways 5 stars!!!
