Ordia

One finger flinger

Just because you’re a slimeball doesn’t mean you don’t have feelings or, in the case of Ordia, aspirations. In this 2019 Apple Design Award winner, help a heroic blob survive its harsh surroundings.

You scale Ordia’s obstacle-filled levels by flinging the little guy skyward. Simply drag back and let go to hurl the blob, but be wary of environmental hazards. Spiky walls and fierce critters—from long-necked, birdlike beasts to massive, multi-eyed balloons—try to block your path.

To avoid them, stick to walls, land on moving platforms, and springboard off bounce pads. Strategically slingshotting is a blast, especially when a prehistoric foe is hot on your tail.

While it may take a few attempts to get your little guy to safety, you’re never hung up on the same spot for long thanks to generous checkpoint placement. Ordia keeps you moving.

And its stunning presentation keeps you staring. The primitive protagonist exudes a ton of charm from its single blinking eyeball and emotive squeaks, while the ambient audio and vibrant visuals put a rain forest in the palm of your hand.

Once you’ve conquered Ordia’s initial stages, continue your evolutionary climb with bonus levels and additional challenges. Why bother evolving when being a blob is this much fun?
