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.

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. Try to beat the game, then try to unlock all the achievements. No one said getting 500 coins would be easy.


• Supercool 8-bit pixel art
• Awesome chiptune soundtrack
• 7 levels to explore and survive in "The Rise & Fall of Frank Solway"
• Dodge and jump as high as you can in "Endless Nightfall"
• Hundreds of unique objects, hundreds of ways to die

iPhone as controller

Great game. I have it on my iPhone. It's a lot of fun and the soundtrack is great.
I just wish that I could control the game on my MacBook Pro with the version that is on my iPhone.

Great Mac Game

I like to play games on my mac, but I'm not a gamer. I'm a busy professional that is not interested in being sucked into a magnificent world of wonder that will leave me captivated for hours and hours. I simply want a game that loads up lightning fast, gives me a quick adhd fix, and sends me back my merry way to work. This game is not only extremely fun but masters the category of quick fixes, and is one of the only ones on the Mac App Store to do it so well. There are lots of good games on the Mac App Store but many great quick fixes play better on the original iPhone or iPad, and graphic intensive apps usually don't qualify as quick fixes. If you are looking for a great app for a little entertainment and don't think pulling out your iPad is necessary in a coffee shop in addition to you Macbook, get this game.

Even better than the iOS version!

I can't say enough about how great The Incident is, or about how much fun I have had with it over the past six months. When the Mac version came out, though, I was a bit skeptical - it seemed like the game just wouldn't be the same without accelerometer controls. I couldn't have been more wrong! It really feels like this game was made for a keyboard and bigger screen. The developers' attention to detail makes this version not just a good port from the iPhone/iPad, but an amazing game in its own right. Best couple dollars you will spend all week (even if you have the iOS version already).
